Bibb County deputies are investigating the June 12 shooting death of a Macon woman as a “suspicious death,” according to a sheriff’s office spokesman.

Kendra Jackson’s early morning death at her home on Bel Meade Place initially was viewed as a suicide, according to an incident report. Bel Meade Place is a dead end street off Stinsonville Road in North Macon.

Lt. Randy Gonzalez said the case had not been closed before the investigation led deputies in another direction. He declined further comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

Jackson’s fiance told authorities that the couple had argued about separating and she said, “that’s fine, but one of us is going to leave this earth,” according to the incident report.

Jackson, 46, then placed a gun to her head. He tried to take the gun away, but was too late, he told deputies.

The gun, a .40 caliber handgun, belonged to the fiance, according to the report.

When deputies arrived, Jackson was lying on her back in a bedroom with a gunshot wound on her head, according to the report.
