Around 4am on July 5th, a man came home to the house he shared with three others. Upon entering the home in the 1000 block of Pierce Street he found 31-year-old Jonna Hart and 34-year-old Megan Re both shot in the head. His other roommate, Jonna’s husband was nowhere to be found. The man called 9-1-1 and began attempting life-saving procedures, but it was no use. Jonna and Megan are the sixteenth and seventeeth Tacoma homicides this year.
Days later, Jonna’s Jeep would be found near the Narrows Bridge and her husband’s body would be found floating off of Vashon Island. His death was ruled a suicide.
We may never know the motivations for the two murders. What we do know is that three sets of family and friends will never be the same.
Jonna Hart was originally from Idaho, but she tended to move around a lot. She was someone who sought adventure and fun. She was not someone to sit still. And her presence is one that will be missed by her loved ones.
As always, the comments section is moderated and reserved for those who knew Jonna and want to share thoughts or memories of her.
