ANTIOCH, Calif. (KGO) — Alexis Gabe’s parents have always held out hope that one day their daughter will come home. But based on new evidence from the Antioch police, they now acknowledge that their daughter may be gone.
“(It) confirmed when we saw all these pictures and videos…that she was really gone,” said Gwyn Gabe, Alexis’ father.
Alexis, 24, who lived in Oakley, disappeared on January 26 after visiting her ex-boyfriend, Marshall Curtis Jones, at his home in Antioch.
The Gabe family had a meeting with Antioch police and received a detailed timeline of events related to Alexis’ disappearance, including surveillance footage, cellphone records and never-before-seen photos of Jones, who, according to the police, is the suspect of the murder.

“They showed us footage of where Marshall lives. Footage of the bathroom,” Gwyn said.
He says the UV light showed blood on the bathroom door, bathtub and washing machine.
They were also shown a video of Jones taking three trash bags to his mother’s house, where police also found traces of blood.
“He was unloading bin bags which we thought were quite heavy. And, seeing more than one bag, we questioned the police saying, ‘So what’s that supposed to mean? Does that mean she’s in pieces? “, says Gwyn.
“It was shocking to see it. We didn’t expect to see this video,” said Rowena Gabe, Alexis’ mother.

“It was in our head, ‘Dude. Marshall, what have you done?’ What have you done to our daughter?’ ‘ said Gwyn.
On June 2, Oakley police held a press conference at which they confirmed that Jones was the suspect in the murder.
“Marshal Curtis Jones, a 27-year-old resident of Antioch, killed Alexis in his home on or about January 26, 2022,” Police Chief Paul Beard said at the press conference.
The police have always maintained that Jones murdered Alexis, but the reason for this is still unknown.
Jones was killed by Seattle-area law enforcement while trying to serve him with a warrant in early June.

Despite the new information, the Gabe family isn’t giving up. They are waiting for the DNA analysis of the blood.
Police continue to search the town of Pioneer, located about 90 miles east of Antioch, where they believe Jones dumped the trash bags.
Alexis’ parents say their daughter deserves justice.
“She doesn’t deserve this. She deserved more than this,” Rowena said.
