Former Cleveland Playboy Playmate Found Dead from Drug Overdose
Jennifer Lyn Jackson Thompson, a former Playboy Playmate who hailed from Cleveland and made headlines in July 2007 when she was arrested for drunk driving, died of what appears to be a drug overdose early Friday morning. Police were called to the mobile home park where she lived with her husband.
Cleveland's own Miss April 1989 was found dead. Police say that there is nothing suspicious about her death and that she has been abusing drugs for years.
Jackson, 39, was charged with a DUI in 2007 after she was pulled over by police in Oberlin, OH. Authorities also found in her car open beer bottles, marijuana, and rolling papers. Further allegations were that she stole the cigarettes and cigars found in her vehicle. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail.
