Authorities were searching for leads in April 2011 when a teenager vanished out of the blue. However, they quickly became aware of a worrying development, which brought about a terrible finding.
Therefore, we can answer your question about what happened! The most recent episode of Lifetime’s “Sleeping With a Killer” digs into what occurred to Seath Jackson in Florida and the meticulous plan to kill him at a residence.
How Did Seath Jackson Die?
Sonia and Scott Jackson welcomed Seath Jackson into the world in January 1996. He had two brothers. He was regarded as a good-hearted young man who aspired to fight in the UFC.
Along with being an animal lover, Seath loved spending time with his buddies and close ones. He also loved going four-wheeling with his family. Seath had split up with Amber Wright, his teenage girlfriend, before the incident.
On 18 April 2011, after not hearing from Seath, his parents filed a missing persons report. The search was then brought to a dismal end when the authorities the next day got a tip. At a flooded quarry in Ocala, Florida, they discovered Seath’s burnt remains inside paint buckets supported by cinder blocks.
There were some partial remains in a burn pit at a residence in Summerfield, Florida. The detectives concluded that Seath had been tortured before his body was burned, including being beaten and receiving a.22-caliber gunshot wound to the head.
Who killed Seath Jackson: Amber Wright
Seath Jackson and Amber Wright started dating sometime in December 2010, but their relationship ended in March 2011. They had been openly arguing on Facebook in the days before the incident.
The inquiry showed that Michael Bargo, then 18 years old, and Amber, then 15, started dating. Michael was mistaken in believing that Seath had assaulted Amber, according to William Samalot, one of Seath’s pals. The two youngsters were, therefore at odds with one another.
Justin Soto (then 20), Kyle Hooper (then 16), and Michael shared Charlie Ely’s home at that time. Kyle’s sister Amber frequently visited. On April 19, 2011, Kyle and Amber’s mother revealed to law enforcement that Seath had been murdered in Charlie’s home. Kyle had informed her about the incident. To find out who was responsible for Seath’s death, the police hurriedly arrived at that residence.
The Plot Of The Murder by Amber Wright
Michael had made threats to kill Seath a week before the murder, the investigation found. Because Kyle discovered Seath in bed with a female he admired, Kyle was also enraged with Seath.
According to court records, Kyle messaged that girl to kill Seath. Michael developed a plan to kill Seath on April 17 and discussed it with Kyle and the others. Then Justin, Michael, and Kyle would attack Seath after luring him to the house with Amber.
William Samalot claimed that on April 17, he and Seath were at a friend’s house, but they split up at about 9:15 o’clock because Seath was going to Charlie’s house. Amber asked Seath to come over under the pretense of sorting things out and getting back together, as evidenced by texts they exchanged that evening. After meeting Seath, Charlie and Amber walked with him to his house.
The Murder Took Place
Amber Wright and Charlie hid in a different space while Seath fled the house after getting injured. Then, in the front yard, Justin tackled Seath, prompting Michael to retaliate by shooting him. Seath was brought back inside by the three men, who then placed him in the bathtub. The cause of Seath’s death was then discovered to be a blunt object strike to the head by Kyle and a.22-caliber gunshot by Michael.
In order for Seath to fit into a sleeping bag, his kneecaps were broken. Michael realized Seath was alive and assaulted him, shooting him several more times, including in the face. The body was subsequently burned after being placed in a fireplace.
Michael and Justin traveled to an Ocala quarry the following morning; James Havens, Amber, and Kyle’s stepfather drove them there. The body parts of Seath were dumped into the sea while being supported by cinder blocks and placed inside paint buckets.
The Investigation Following Seath’s Murder
Kyle had used bleach to aid Amber Wright, Charlie, and other home guests clean up. However, there was still proof. After the police discovered a projectile in the corpse, the.22-caliber weapon was identified as the murder weapon.
In the toilet, a bloody mixture including Charlie’s DNA was discovered, and in the living room, a bloody mixture containing Seath’s blood and Kyle’s DNA was discovered. Additionally, the blood on the kitchen ceiling contained Michael’s DNA.
Following DNA testing on the remains discovered at the quarry and the campfire, it was determined they belonged to the same individual. The remains of Sonia and Scott’s biological son were later determined to be among them.
Michael had also given conflicting accounts to several people about getting into a fight, killing a child, and then setting the body on fire. According to him, his justification for doing it was that the child had raped both his sister and his girlfriend, according to a different version of the event.
The Final Words
The authorities swiftly apprehended all five, each receiving a different punishment for their crimes. Both Amber and Kyle were convicted of first-degree murder in June 2012. However, Amber showed up for a retrial at the beginning of 2016, which resulted in the same verdict.
She was later given a life term in jail. Although Charlie and Justin were also given life sentences, the former’s conviction was overturned in 2020, resulting in a guilty plea to a lower charge and a subsequent release.
Michael was found guilty and given the death penalty. According to prison records, Amber is still detained at the Homestead Correctional Institution in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
