So sad this case. Steven sounds like a man that doesn't have much self esteem, probably realized that this lovely young woman was out of his league and tried to trick her into believing he was a wonderful man (like that is shown in rings that cost 10 dollars, 1000 dollars, or a million dollars.)
Sounds like he knew how low his self esteem was, and if he really couldn't have her... no one else could.

It's a shame all around. Parents always need to keep ears and eyes open for these type of issues, they can (and often will) affect other people.

I'm guessing her parents saw the possessiveness and jealousy and talked to her about it,but most 20 year olds don't want to believe these kind of things. They mistake it for love. Its a fine line a parent walks. If you are too firm you might push their child to the lover. I remember my parents,sensing my ex BIL was no good,trying to keep my sister from him. It made her want him more. She married him and he turned out to be a sexual pervert.
I'm sure Jenni's parents wish they had done more,but I'm not sure it would have made a difference.

Syracuse.com (Syracuse Post Standard) is probably the best available local paper in the Syracuse area. There is a searchable crime blotter located here:

http://www.syracuse.com/crime/police-blotter/

Thank you very much Laytonian, Verity & Boo Scout for helping me figure out why I was finding nothing searching when others did.

I had searched the police-blotter previously and gotten nothing. Did it again just now- got nothing. Then I guessed it might be a case sensitive search- I had used "pieper". Once I entered "Pieper, it worked.

I really appreciate all of your input. This was really driving me nuts.

My post was concerning Steven's parents, and how they ought to have seen the signs.. or at least watched out for them.

I do realize how much Jenni's parents did, it was ultimately Steven's actions that affected her.

There is an interesting article on syracuse.com today detailing how Pieper's friends helped the police in their investigation. The link I tried to post looked too long so I deleted it, but it is today's (12/5) story.

Exclusive: Steven Pieper's friends grew suspicious as they challenged his story about Jenni-Lyn Watson

Clay, NY -- It had been two days since Steve Pieper or anyone else had seen his ex-girlfriend, Jenni-Lyn Watson.

He’d told two friends that he and Watson had talked on the morning of Friday, Nov. 19, and were getting back together. The friends, Alan Jones and Bryan Holleran, said Pieper appeared nonchalant for two days — even though Watson’s family was upset and questioning him, as were investigators.

They were already suspicious when Pieper told them about a mysterious black pickup truck parked outside Watson’s home in Clay when he’d left that Friday. A man was waiting for her inside the truck, Pieper told them. They thought: Really? Pieper just drove away with a guy waiting for her?

Kudos to these kids for reporting his lies and their suspicions back to the Police. I can't help by think though, that they have inadvertantly helped him with his defense with the 'roid rage' comment. Hopefully the jury won't buy it if that's what he goes with. RIP Jenni-Lyn, and prayers to the Watson family.

This is truly sad. I hope her abuser gets life, if not death. I think he is a rotten apple and cannot be helped. My prayers go out to the Watson's and their friends/loved ones as well.

Mandatory classes need to be taught in high school and college about how to spot the signs of an abuser and how to stay OUT of an abusive relationship. Domestic Violence 101. Young people need to be educated. Parents can do their part, but hearing about it amongst other peers helps too.

Then, there is only so much family/friends can do. The victim has to make decisions on their own to say NO to abusive behavior.

Sadly, SP will not receive the DP if he is convicted. He has only been arraigned on 2nd degree murder charges. In NY, the DP was declared unconstitutional in 2004 (People of New York v. Steven LaValle) But, for 2nd degree murder, the max sentence is 25 to life. And considering the circumstances, he will probably get the max.

Steven Pieper admits killing Jenni-Lyn Watson

Authorities believe Pieper intentionally killed Watson in her home that morning and then backed his car into the garage in order to place her body in the trunk without being seen by neighbors or passersby. He then drove to the nearby Clay Park Central where he disposed of the remains in a swampy, wooded area.

Authorities said Pieper covered the body with vegetation to try to conceal the remains which were found eight days later by law enforcement personnel searching the park area. Authorities have said they believe Pieper used Watson’s cell phone from that area to try to create an alibi for himself and cast suspicion on someone else.

But Fitzpatrick has said authorities focused attention on Pieper after his cell phone was found in Watson’s home the day she was reported missing

N.Y. Police cite incriminating text messages sent by confessed killer (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-20032238-504083.html)
Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick told CNN that although investigators were unable to recover Watson's cell phone, they were able to review calls and text messages made by the 20-year-old victim, as well as by Pieper.
While reviewing text messages sent from Watson's cell phone, investigators say they came across the shorthand "GTG" or "got to go" which is an acronym not typically used by the victim, but frequently used by Pieper.
