OAKLEY, Calif. (KGO) -- The parents of missing Oakley woman Alexis Gabe say they finally heard from their daughter's ex-boyfriend's mother after he was fatally shot by officers in Washington state on Wednesday.
Oakley and Antioch officers issued a warrant for Marshall Curtis Jones' arrest on June 1 in Kent, Washington. The 27-year-old was charged with the murder of Gabe, 24, who disappeared in Jan. 2022.
On Wednesday, Jones was killed by officers when they tried to arrest him at his new home.
Gabe's parents say Jones' mother called them to apologize.
"Since day one we haven't heard anything until today. Marshall's mom reached out to us and said she was shameful that she just now reached out to us, she was apologizing. It was a very emotional between her and my wife, it was an emotional conversation," explains Gwin Gabe.
Rowena Gabe also asked Jone's mother if she knew where her daughter may be. She told her "I don't know."
