Uncle of Jessica Dishon Charged With Her 1999 Murder

A Bullitt County grand jury has returned an indictment in the long-unsolved murder of a 17 year old Shepherdsville girl.

Jessica Dishon was last seen alive in the driveway of her family’s home in September of 1999.    Her body was found just over two weeks later.

A neighbor was originally charged with her death, but his case ended in a mistrial and the charges were later dropped.

A grand jury today charged the girl’s uncle, 55 year old Stanley Dishon, with kidnapping and murder.      Dishon was already jailed on sex charges.

Few details of the case against Dishon have been disclosed, but Sheriff Dave Greenwell says he’s confident the charges will lead to a resolution of the case.    

Authorities say they had received several new tips in the case over the last five or six months.
