    How horrible!

    I want to know the relationship of the two. It didn't sound like it was a boyfriend, wonder if she knew him at all. I only assume it wasn't a boyfriend since the family didn't say anything, could have been.

    From what I'm hearing either Jennifer or her mother called the police the day before on this guy for harassment. Neighbors say he's a troubled teen....ya think??? I just wonder how he got her to meet him in the drainage ditch area...although maybe he followed her there. I've heard that she recently moved out and got her own apartment....not sure on that one. The area she was killed was behind her mothers home.

    Man, 19, jailed in Bowie High student's slaying

    Young woman remembered as caring, happy person.

    A 19-year-old Austin man was jailed Saturday on a charge of first-degree murder in the slaying of Bowie High School senior Jennifer Crecente.
    Justin Allen Crabbe was being held without bail because of previous outstanding warrants against him. Police offered no further details regarding the arrest late Saturday.

    Jennifer Crecente's slaying cut short a young life with many possibilities, including plans to study psychology in college after graduating from Bowie High School in May.

    ...Her father, Drew Crecente, 38, who does computer work for Home Depot, was too upset to talk Saturday but issued a statement through his brother: "Jennifer was a wonderful, precious gift, and I will miss her forever."
    Police have asked that the slain student's mother, who is recovering from an illness, not be called by reporters. "She's crushed by this," Brian Crecente said.

    He said Jennifer Crecente was an animal lover who had various pets. She had been a vegetarian since she was 12, he said. She was a camp counselor for young children last summer in Atlanta and had volunteered in Austin hospitals during the past few years.

    Her father had saved money to pay for her to go to college, and she was talking about going to college in Austin "for at least the first couple of years," Brian Crecente said.

    Justin Allen Crabbe, charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of a Bowie High School senior, told police that another man shot her accidentally while they were playing with a gun, according to a police affidavit.

    Crabbe, 18, who was arrested Saturday night, is being held without bail at the Travis County Jail.

    Jennifer Crecente was found shot in woods.

    Crabbe first told police he had not seen the victim, 18-year-old Jennifer Crecente, since 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. But later he said he, Crecente and another friend had been in a wooded area near their houses when a gun he and the friend were handling went off, hitting Crecente, the affidavit says.

    This was a story from earlier last week:

    ...Authorities believe she died sometime Wednesday morning or afternoon from a gunshot wound.
    ...They think her murder may have been planned or pre-meditated.

    Police are asking neighbors especially to call with info if they saw anyone or anything suspicious on Wednesday.

    How sad, I wonder how long they had been dating. It didn't sound like any of her friends were familure with the relationship. I read through quite a bit on the my space and didn't see him mentioned any where.
