The owner of this Lincoln Avenue home, Glen Jackson, was arrested Thursday on abuse of corpse and tampering with evidence charges. He's now sitting behind prison bars in Lycoming County, while investigators piece this disturbing puzzle together. "The evidence is being logged and will actually be sent now to the lab now for a forensic analysis," adds Knight.
The results could lead to additional criminal charges for Jackson. "Now, if the evidence, the forensic analysis is completed on the evidence and it actually ties him to something that would be more serious, then he would be charged with or arraigned on those charges at a later date," says Knight.
One neighbor also fears for the safety of others in the community, "I would not let my children near that house." The crime scene sits uncomfortably close to a child's backyard. The little boy's grandmother, who wished to remain anonymous, says, it's a scary situation. "So close to home like this, my grandchildren live there and it's just a scary thing," she adds.
While Jackson's home may have been quieter during daylight hours, the woman says, it was common to see people in and out frequently during the evening. She even compares her longtime neighbor to "Jeckle and Hyde" saying, "Well, he was a very very nice person to speak to him, but when he would get drunk he was a different person. He was very mean."
