Body of missing Cocoa mother of 4 found in rural Osceola County, police say

The body of a 31-year-old missing mother of four was found Friday evening, the Cocoa Police Department said. Investigators said they are at a remote area in Osceola County, where they found the body of Tashaun Jackson.  Police said Jackson’s family reported her missing on Sunday after she failed to return home Saturday from a trip to a convenience store.  Detectives said a surveillance camera at the 7-Eleven at North Fiske and Dixon boulevards recorded Jackson at about 3 p.m. Saturday.  Police said they requested an aerial search of an area near Nova and Deer Park roads in Osceola County.  A Brevard County Sheriff’s Office helicopter crew found Jackson's body at about 6 p.m. near Deer Park Road, east of Nova Road, police said.  '(Crime scene technicians) are doing their best to document the scene, collect whatever evidence was left behind and move forward with the investigation to find who is responsible,' said Yvonne Martinez, a police spokeswoman. 'The family was notified earlier this evening, and as you can probably imagine, it was pretty devastating for them and our hearts are with them tonight.'  The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is assisting Cocoa police with the death investigation.  No other details were given.

3 I-4 Ultimate construction workers hurt only days after safety review 

Less than two weeks after an 'I-4 Ultimate Project' worker was killed in an accident on the job, three workers were hurt on the job Friday.  It happened just after 10 a.m, the three construction workers fell about 15 feet Friday on the ramp from Garland Avenue to I-4 Eastbound near Colonial Drive.  Orlando Fire District Chief Creed McClelland told Eyewitness News Channel 9, the men were on a wooden platform pouring concrete when it broke.  The workers sustained minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, according to I-4 Ultimate contractor SGL Constructors.  This incident happened just a few days after work on the project resumed. Work had been suspended for a week after a worker was struck and killed by an iron pipe near Wymore Road on Feb. 4. That incident was the fourth time a worker has died since the I-4 Ultimate project started in 2015
