On Thursday, December 8, after picking him up for his trip, the passenger reportedly killed his victim from the backseat of her vehicle in Louisiana, United States.

After being detained by police on suspicion of the crime, he proceeded to stroll to a hotel where he had reserved a room in advance.

Sheriff Joseph Lopinto announced the death of Yolanda at a news conference and detailed the alleged confession in which Jacobs allegedly disclosed to authorities his reason for the vicious attack on Thursday.

According to Lopinto, “His confession basically claimed that he decided to kill someone yesterday morning when he woke up and that was going to be his day.

“We especially questioned him, ‘How did you choose her?'” 

“I didn’t pick her, Uber picked her,” he said in response. 

The haphazard person who picked him up that day was her.

Yolanda, a budget administrator for the New Orleans Police Department, was well-liked by her coworkers.

She will be sorely missed, said chief Shaun Ferguson. 

She was quite reserved and modest. 

Because she meant a lot to our department and it devastated our staff, I would describe her as a silent giant.

The Jefferson Parish Sherriff’s Office said that the suspect was apprehended “within hours of the murder” in a statement.

“Our investigation has shown that the victim was an Uber driver giving Jacobs a lift from a place in New Orleans to the hotel,” they said.

Jacobs repeatedly stabbed her after the journey was over before getting out of the car.
