Crews Recover Body of Third Woman Dead in Boat Crash

Posted: Updated:

KANAB, Utah (AP) -- Authorities say they've recovered the body of a third woman who died after a boat flipped over last week on Lake Powell.

Kane County deputies say the body of 22-year-old South Jordan resident Jessica Jackman was found in about 400 feet of water around noon on Tuesday.

She was one of 13 people aboard a motorboat driven by her father when it crashed into a houseboat on Thursday morning near Dangling Rope Marina. Investigators say it appears the driver was distracted by some children who were on the watercraft.

Jackman's mother, 57-year-old, Marilyn Jackman, was killed.

Jessica Jackman and 29-year-old Valerie Rae Bradshaw initially went missing in the water.

Crews who had been searching for the two missing women using sonar and a robot found Bradshaw's body Sunday evening
