Jennifer Cornell Description:Jennifer Cornell

  • Age 30
  • white female
  • five feet and four inches tall
  • about 135 pounds

Cornell’s car was found abandoned Thursday morning and still running on the street approximately 100 yards from her home. Searchers and volunteers are presently looking for Jennifer Cornell Standing Stone State Park.

The woman’s abandoned car was found Thursday morning still running on a street 100 yards from her home. Her purse was still inside her vehicle when police arrived.

Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play but are looking for a body at the park, which covers nearly 11,000 acres.

“Jennifer’s a loving mother and a loving wife,” said family spokesman Michael South. “We just want to return her as quickly as possible.”

A couple of months ago, Cornell proved that Hancock is the father of her 17-year-old daughter, and she began asking him for child support.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Overton County Sheriff’s Department at (931) 823-5635.

UPDATE I: Ex-Boyfriend Jason Hancock was arrested Friday in Clay County

Jason Hancock was arrested Friday in Clay County. He was charged with aggravated kidnapping.  He is being held without bond pending hearing next week.

Authorities believe Hancock dated Cornell about 16 years ago.

Man charged with kidnapping missing woman

34 year old Jason Hancock, the ex-boyfriend of missing Jennifer Cornell has been arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping. At least for now. The warrant against Jason Hancock alleges he committed the crime of aggravated kidnapping by “falsely imprisoning” Jennifer Cornell with the intent “to inflict serious bodily injuries while in the possession of a deadly weapon.” At issue appears to be back child support as investigators say that Cornell had named Hancock as the father of her 17-year-old daughter and may have been seeking back pay for child support.

A Clay County man was arrested Friday night and charged with kidnapping a Hilham woman who has been missing since Thursday.

Jason Hancock, 34, of the Willow Grove area of Clay County, is charged with aggravated kidnapping of Jennifer Hughes Cornell, 30, of Vaughn Lane, Hilham.

He was arrested at his home about 7:30 p.m. Friday by Clay County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Randall Slayton, one of several law officers working the case.

Hancock, who is being held without bail pending a court hearing, had been questioned in the disappearance of Cornell on Thursday, but was not charged with any crime at that time.

UPDATE I: Body found in missing woman case

Overton County Sheriff W.B. Melton told the Herald-Citizen that searchers found the body on Sunday about 10 a.m. and said it was removed from the sinkhole around 2 a.m. today, Monday, and sent to Nashville for an autopsy.

He said it was the body of a woman and that the exact cause of death is still not known, though it did not appear that she had been shot. He said official identification of the body will not be confirmed until the autopsy is conducted.

UPDATE II: Autopsy Confirms Body Is Missing Mom Jennifer Cornell

Autopsy results released Tuesday confirmed the identity of a body found in a sinkhole as that of Jennifer Cornell. They also show that she died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Cornell had been missing since Oct. 30, when her car was found still running in the middle of a road 100 yards from her home in Overton County, with her purse inside.
