Florida wife kills her sons, drives off United Press International VILANO BEACH, Fla. — Police searched Tuesday for a wealthy young housewife they believe shot her two small sons, left their bodies on a desolate stretch of beach and drove away in a gold Cadillac — perhaps to kill herself. The pajama-clad bodies of Palmer Jackson, 3, and his brother Rhett, 5-months, were found Monday night after their father, Jacksonville busi nessman Robert A. Jackson, found a three-page note from his wife saying she intended to kill the children and herself. Duval County police Sgt. C.F. Romine said blond Nancy Bauer Jackson, 32, apparently “had this obsession that her kids were sick and she couldn’t cope with it” — even though a doctor had examined both children recently and found them to be in good health. The two children were lying face down in a gulley on a narrow, spit of sparsely populated sand called Ponte Verdra, north of St. Augustine, a sherifFs spokesman said. Both had been shot once in the chest. A Duval police spokesman said all units had been notified to look for the gold 1979 Cadillac Mrs. Jackson was believed to be driving when she left home shortly before 7 p.m. Romine said Jackson “talked with his wife (by telephone) about 4 p.m. and everything seemed fine. She seemed completely rational and apparently wasn’t upset.” Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Smith, neighbors of the Jacksons, said she seemed devoted to her children “and always spent her days with them.” Legal battle develops over estate and debts of Yankees’ Munson United Press International CLEVELAND — New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson, killed in the crash of his Cessna Cita tion jet last Aug. 2, left an estate of nearly $5 million and debts of more than $3 million, it was reported Tuesday.
