It was 7 p.m. when they got there, and they began looking around the outside of Jennifer’s apartment since she was not answering the door.
Surprisingly, a door located on the side of Jennifer’s apartment was left open a crack, and the group of students was able to peer in to see a terrible sight.
Jennifer was lying there dead inside of her bedroom, and they rushed off to contact the authorities.
Her cause of death was later determined to be strangulation.
“A friend last saw her alive about midnight on April 23rd, and investigators feel Jennifer was killed during the early morning hours of that same date,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation explained.
It’s now been 29 long years, and Jennifer’s case has long since grown cold.
If you have any information on Jennifer’s case, please contact the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Region 11 Athens Office at 706.552.2309 or the Athens-Clarke County Police Department at 706.613.3330.
