JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – New information into the killing of a 68-year-old woman in Arlington was revealed Wednesday in a police report obtained by News4Jax.

The records show that the Gail Clark, the woman who was found dead outside her home on Cesery Boulevard, did not live alone. According to a police report, Brian Dixon told JSO investigators that Clark was his mother, and that he came home from work and found her stabbed to death.

Dixon is a convicted felon, but he was allowed to get out of jail on a $15,000 bond. He has prior arrests for aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by convicted felon, and possession of a sawed-off shotgun.

The Sheriff’s Office has said it does not believe Dixon was involved in Clark’s homicide.

Investigators have said Clark’s body had blunt force injuries and that foul play is suspected in her death, but her death is still classified as an undetermined homicide, not a murder.

Anyone with information concerning Clark’s death can anonymously call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477).
