Circumstances of Disappearance
Jackson was last seen leaving the "Mariner's Harbor Motel" on Staten Island, New York on August 14, 1983. Her mother sent her to purchase chicken on Forest Avenue. She never returned.

Three days after her disappearance investigators questioned Andre Rand. But they were unable to bring charges due to lack of witnesses and evidence. At the time of Tiahease's disappearance, Rand was known to have a campsite in Baron Hirsch Cemetery, Graniteville, which is less than half a mile from the Conca D'Oro. Tiahease's mother also told investigators a man fitting Rand's description often hung out in a van in a parking lot near the motel.
