    TX - Jennifer Harris-Holman, 28, Bonham, 12 May 2002

    Jennifer Harris-Holman was last seen alive on Mother's Day in 2002 when she was leaving her grandmother's house to meet up with a friend. She was supposed to return later that night and when she didn't, her family called the police. Her car was found abandoned at Lake Bonham and six days later, her naked body was found floating in the Red River. An exact cause of death has never been established but it was "violent and unnatural" & her uterus had somehow been removed. Throughout the years, there have been a few persons of interests but no arrests have been made. Her family believes it was someone she trusted and knew, possibly the same individual who she was meeting that same night. They are trying to get more exposure for Jennifer's case as they feel LE has not been the most reliable in trying to solve this case.

    The FBI, Texas Rangers and Fannin County Sheriff's Office launched a lengthy investigation. The family says two suspects were identified early on, a former boyfriend and Jennifer's ex-husband.

    But no arrests were ever made.

    Schnieder said, "we feel like she knew who she was meeting, and knew who they were and voluntarily got in their automobile."

    The family says they have waited almost 13 years for justice, and hope bringing the story back to light will encourage someone to come forward.

    The TNT Show "Cold Justice" indicated it wanted to investigate Harris' death, but the Fannin County sheriff initially refused to give them access to the case file -- and evidence -- but has now agreed to meet with them towards the end of July.

    Was she pregnant? If so, this killer knew how DNA could be used against him, if not now, later.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    The family and PI believe that was the motive behind her murder.

    "Private investigator weighing in on Jennifer Harris cold case"


    The Oklahoma City Medical Examiner’s office said all of her female organs were missing. The autopsy showed they had been forcibly removed.

    Jennifer's father, Jerry Harris, believes his daughter was pregnant at the time of her death and there's a good chance that's why she was killed.

    "She thought she was pregnant. Whether she was or not, we don't know," said Harris.

    But the investigator Jim Holloway feels that if she was, the motive is very clear.

    "The person that would have maybe got her pregnant certainly thought she was, because they went to great lengths to kill her," he said.

    Fannin County Sheriff responds to controversy concerning death of Jennifer Harris

    Throughout the years we have sought assistance from other investigators, to include Texas Rangers, FBI, and the Texas Attorney General’s Office. Even private investigators and cold case units were given access to the case file information, in the hope that we could find out what happened to Jennifer.

    We have gone to other states with Rangers to interview people who could possibly have information. Fannin County Sheriff’s Office has worked diligently toward finding the answers regarding the death of Jennifer Harris and will continue to do so.

    Regardless of what people keep posting, I have had numerous telephone conversations with the Supervising Producer for the television show, “Cold Justice.” I have had conversations with the Senior Producer for the show and emails to show that I tried to meet with them.
    That was at the first week of August. Since then I have received no calls from their producers. I am not refusing to meet with the show, as is alleged, even though there is a written Attorney General’s Opinion stating that the information regarding the case should not be public information.

    I have been accused of being “heartless.” I helped pull Jennifer from the water that day. Aside from her family, there is probably nobody who wants “Justice for Jennifer” more than I do. I just choose to not make the tragic death of a young lady a political tool as some are doing. “Justice for Jennifer” is more than a catchy slogan to me.
