Alexis Gabe’s family dedicates bench in her honor

The family of Alexis Gabe, a young woman who police believe was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, has dedicated a bench in her honor.

Gabe was reported missing on January 26, 2022, after she did not return to her family home in Oakley, California. After months of investigating, police began to suspect there her ex-boyfriend Marshall Jones had killed her. In late May 2022, police shot and killed Jones while attempting to arrest him in Seattle.

Officials found some of the 24-year-old Gabe’s remains in Amador county back in November 2022, NBC News Bay Area reports. Then, according to Mercury News, volunteers found more remains in late January 2023, nearly a year after her disappearance.

Gabe’s family has dedicated a bench in Oakley City Park to her memory. The bench was unveiled on March 17.

“We always feel her presence at home. But having a place where she can have her own bench, is awesome,” Gwyn Gabe, her father told the crowd, according to ABC 7. “And I hope each and every one of you will just come down and have a seat with Alexis.”
