Bridget Jacobs is seen in a photo released by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office on March 29, 2017.

Search crews have been scouring the waters surrounding Brandy Creek Marina, 14 miles west of Redding, for days, looking for the body of Bridget Marie Jacobs. Her husband directed detectives to the location, according Sgt. Brian Jackson of the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office.

On Tuesday, Philip Jacobs was arrested on suspicion of murder after he reportedly told police that his wife died during an argument.

Authorities began investigate the case March 15, when deputies received a frightening 911 call from the couple’s home. A woman could be heard screaming before the line was disconnected, Jackson said.
