LOCK HAVEN — Clinton County officials have issued a news release regarding the death of Jamie Lynn Jackson.

Clinton County District Attorney Dave Strouse, Medical Examiner Zach Hanna and the Pennsylvania State Police recently issued a joint release statement on Jackson’s death. According to the publication, Jackson died from one “Multi-drug overdose”. The manner of death, the press release said, was accidental.

However, the publication also said that Jackson’s death remains “examined” by the state police.

Jackson, 36, was being held at Clinton County Correctional Facility in McElhattan while awaiting trial in spring 2022 for the November 2020 murder of 9-year-old Anson Stover. On November 14, 2021, Jackson reportedly experienced a medical emergency at the correctional facility and was rushed to Lock Haven Hospital by ambulance.

The district attorney and coroner said at the time of her death that no other people were involved in the incident and there was no indication of foul play.

“Autopsy pathology and toxicology results have determined that Ms Jackson died of a multiple drug overdose due to fluoxetine and bupropion.” it said in the press release. “Her manner of death was determined to be accidental. This matter remains under investigation by the Pennsylvania State Police. More information will be released as it becomes available.”

In November 2020, Jackson was charged with criminal homicide by Lock Haven City Police after her 9-year-old nephew, Anson Stover, was brutally beaten to death. She was also charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child, tampering with or falsifying evidence, abusing a corpse and concealing the death of a child.
