Missing army vet found dead in shallow grave next to her dog

Investigators in October had arrested her former husband, Dalen Ware, at his Arizona home on suspicion of killing Jacobson, even though they didn't have a body at the time.

Julia's brother, Jon Jacobson said he received the news Friday morning during Julia's funeral.

Authorities searching for a missing San Diego woman discovered the remains of a woman and a dog in a shallow grave Friday. Ontario police said they found evidence that led them to believe she was murdered.

The body of Julia Jacobson and her dog Boogie were thought to have been discovered during a search of the Riverside County desert by 120 officers near Cactus City, about 20 miles east of Indio.

Police believe they have found the remains of a missing Dickinson native in California. After San Diego police determined Jacobson had gone to Ontario, authorities in San Bernardino County took over the case. The identity of the remains has yet to be confirmed by the Medical Examiner's Office. Her friends said she had served two tours in Iraq. Jacobson, a retired Army captain and corporate real estate broker for 7-Eleven, went missing in San Diego over Labor Day weekend. Jacobson reportedly texted friends on September 2 that she was in Palm Springs and would be going to Big Bear later; investigators believe she was killed the following day.

Ontario police released this photo of the suspect, Dalen Ware.

The couple have been divorced for about a year, and according to court documents, Ware had a history of domestic violence.

Her black handbag was found inside, unzipped and with hardly anything in it.

Soon after she was reported missing, SDPD officers found Jacobson's auto abandoned at 2600 Monroe Avenue in University Heights.
