Arrest made in January 2021 Ripley County Homicide

On Friday, March 26, 2021, Indiana State Police Detectives arrested a 36 year old Ripley County man for the murder of a 36 year old Ripley County woman that occurred in January 2021 near Holton, Indiana. The investigation by detectives with the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post determined that a 9-1-1 call was placed in the early morning hours of January 11, 2021 after Kristina “Krissy” Jones was found unresponsive in the bathroom of a residence on County Road 700 West, just north of Holton, Indiana.  Jones was pronounced deceased at the scene and was found to have injuries that indicated she was the victim of a homicide. An autopsy that was conducted shortly after her death indicated that Jones died as a result of gunshot wounds that she sustained.  The investigation led to a suspect, Jordan Knudson, age 36, who was formerly in a relationship with Jones. At the conclusion of the two-month long investigation, the case was presented to the Ripley County Prosecutor’s Office for review.  As a result, a warrant was issued for Jordan Knudson alleging one count of Murder, Level 1 Felony. Indiana State Police Detectives arrested Knudson on Friday, March 26, 2021 when he arrived at the Jennings County Courthouse, North Vernon, Indiana for a hearing in a different matter.  He was then incarcerated at the Ripley County Jail pending his initial appearance in Ripley County Circuit Court.
