    Exclamation Chris Jenkins Story Will Be On Dateline Tonight.

    Link

    The second hour of tonight's Dateline is on Chris Jenkins.

    Then at 10pm, Dateline presents:

    A new kind of mystery story, which unfolds unlike any other. A college senior named Chris Jenkins is murdered on a chilly Halloween night. Now he comes alive to tell his own story, reconstructing the case in his own words. You'll listen to the pieces of the crime, hear the clues, and literally walk in Chris Jenkins's shoes. Can you help solve his mystery?

    It's a true story that only the victim can tell. "Solve My Mystery: The True Story of Chris Jenkins."

    Coming up Friday night at 9/8 Central on NBC.


    This will be very interesting.

    The suicide theory is not nearly as absurd as they are making it sound. He had seen a psychologist because he was so despondent over losing his girlfriend. I'm not saying it's what happened but it definitely is a viable theory. JMO

    Did they say how long after he disappears that they get the bloodhounds?

    That serial killer thing is very interesting.

    I'm gonna have to watch this again. Right now it appears that they are glossing over some things. He was thrown out of the bar but IIRC, and this why I want to watch the whole thing again, they don't mention why. These things can be important to the case.

    I never heard about the guy online. I remember way back when the detectives (Smiley Case Murders) that were investigating said news was going to break...then nothing.

    Those guys may have screwed up the investigation more than they helped. Kristi Piehl no longer works with them.

    How the body was found is very interesting.

    I was watching it, they did not mention why he was thrown out. I kept waiting for them to say it, but they didn't.

    Found this "open" letter from his sister online...he was bounced out...doesn't seem as a reason was given...

    It really doesn't seem as a "reason" was ever confirmed...

    This was from the time he went missing...
