    MN - Christopher Jenkins, 21, UM student, Minneapolis, 1 Nov 2002

    Four missing people -- just a tragic coincidence?


    In the two weeks after Halloween, three college men disappeared from Minneapolis, Collegeville, and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Around the same time, a 21-year-old woman in Brainerd failed to show up for work, and has not been seen since. Despite constant media exposure and massive search efforts, all four are still missing, and authorities are still waiting for the one tip or stroke of luck that might yield some answers. If the cases are linked, a break in one might solve them all. But at this point it seems just as likely all four are only connected by a tragic coincidence.


    All four are still missing? Nothing?

    No, this is a really old article.

    Christopher Jenkins was found on 2/27/03

    Michael Noll was found 3/4/2003

    I've been seeing more and more online discussions about these young people (mostly men) in the past year. The following website has been around for a while and has a good list of them all with various links and other info.

    There is more info in the "Located" Jared Dion thread. http://websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6734

    Edit- Oh, I see you posted there as well... I see Trino provided this same link in that thread in a post prior to your reponse in that thread- go check it out, it's scary. I'll leave it here in case anyone else sees this.

    Case has now been ruled a homicide

    In the case of Chris Jenkins the case has now been classified as a murder investigation. Just heard this on Greta and am looking for a link. They are also looking at the other deaths and the possibilty of a serial killer. The FBI is now investigating the deaths.

    CBS news coverage Jenkins "murder"

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/...n2209532.shtml

    ...Now, four years later, police are agreeing with the family. They say Chris was the victim of a homicide. He was thrown from a bridge. There is an eyewitness and a suspect.

    "We did make a mistake. We made an assumption," Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan said last week. "For the Minneapolis Police Department, I want to apologize to the Jenkins family." (more and video at link)

    Bumping, the murder of Christopher Jenkins is still unsolved.

    Originally, the death was ruled as an accidental drowning. After the family consulted with other professionals, the cause of death was changed to a homicide. There was an alleged eye-witness to the murder and he implicated an acquaintance as being responsible. The major hole in his story is that he said that the perpetrator threw Christopher off of the Hennepin Avenue bridge. Investigators were dubious to the idea that someone could do this to a person the size of Chris. Also, the bridge is under surveillance. A commuter would have possibly seen something happening. If not, there are cameras that would have recorded some evidence of this scenario happening. No charges were brought up after this "tip" was received.

    There are some theories that this murder may be connected to some other cases that occurred within the same time-frame. Investigators have not made any connections public; if any do exist.
