Man Confesses He Killed Woman Who Vanished in 2001

Vanished Person Mystery Solved – Gone Since 2001

( – Over two decades ago, a woman went missing in Alabama. Typically these cases remain unsolved, although families often hold out hope that their loved ones are still alive. Unfortunately, one woman’s killer has come forth to admit he murdered her, 21 years later.

In 2001, Janet Luxford, a 41-year-old woman from Jacksonville, Florida went missing in Alabama. Authorities in Bessemer, Alabama claim a South Carolina native came to them, admitting they killed Luxford all those years ago. The man, a truck driver named Brian Jones, led police to the area where he hid the body, which he stuffed into a suitcase. Sure enough, authorities found human remains, right where Jones said they would be. Investigators are currently examining them to determine if the body is indeed Luxford.

According to police, Luxford was a Florida resident, but was from California, where her parents lived. Jones had met Luxford at the hotel where she worked. Luxford left behind her 12-year-old daughter, Amanda Luxford Hernandez, who says she came home from school to find her mom had left with personal belongings. Now 33, the daughter asserted her mother’s disappearance was hard on her and her siblings. Hernandez admitted the only silver lining to discovering Jones killed her mother was that she didn’t intentionally stay away for all those years.

Authorities believe Jones and Luxford got into an argument, and that he struck her in the throat with a golf club, causing her to die. Police say they’ve charged Jones with murder and the abuse of a corpse.
