Caldwell Woman Killed in Act of Domestic Violence
This is the type of situation nightmares are made of. A 29-year-old Caldwell woman died after being murdered in a domestic violence situation.
According to police, Jaclyn Dawn Zabel was involved with a 37-year-old man whose identity has not been released. We don't know what led up to the shooting but it ended with Jaclyn being fatally shot yesterday morning and then the man turning the gun on himself. He is currently in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The Canyon County Sheriffs Office describes the domestic violence as "elevated to the most severe type of situation and resulted in the loss of life."
According to KTVB Jaclyn's death has been ruled a homicide and they are not looking for any other suspects.
Please keep all those who loved Jaclyn in your thoughts and prayers and may situations like this be a constant reminder of the importance of making wise decisions in the relationships that we get into and maintain. 29 is far too young to die.
