Cold Case Breakthrough! Suspect Charged in 2003 Murder of ‘Susan Kennedy Jackson’

For years, investigators from the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Louisiana State Police, and the Acadiana Crime Lab have worked together on some opened murder cases.

Because of their hard work, someone has been charged with killing Susan Kennedy Jackson in 2003.

In December 2003, Jackson’s body was found in Bayou Wikoff, not far from Crowley and just north of exit 82. Jackson’s head had been hit hard when she was found.

“For more than 20 years, investigators have worked many cold cases for their victims, and they still do to this day. As Sheriff KP Gibson put it, “This team has been focused, and their hard work and determination have led to this arrest.”

When the DNA evidence from this case was sent to the Acadiana Crime Lab, it was added to a database used across the country. Investigators were just recently told that this information fits with what they already know about the Jackson case.

Ferris Bonham, 44, from Marysville, Washington, was the match in the DNA test. Bonham was in jail in Michigan on charges that had nothing to do with us. Now he is in the Acadia Parish Jail on a warrant for his arrest for second-degree murder after being moved from Michigan. A $1 million bond has been set for him.

“I can’t say enough good things about the detectives who never gave up on this case.” “Working together has led to good results,” Sheriff Gibson said.
