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.

Steven Pieper's friends go undercover-- help detectives profile case
Steven Pieper, the alleged murder suspect in the Jenni-Lyn Watson case in Onondaga County had three friends who made it their mission to aid police in profiling the boyfriend who would eventually be arrested, according to an exclusive report from Syracuse.com and John O'Brien of The Post-Standard.
Jeff Mancuso, Alan Jones and Bryan Holleran had one advantage the police detectives in Onondaga County didn't have when it came to the Jenni-Lyn Watson murder case: access to the suspect on a regular--and more intimate--basis.

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.



ref. including a short description of how Lavalle got it overturned...

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
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.

Birthday celebration honors Jenni-Lyns life
It was a celebration of Jenni-Lyn Watson's life. Thursday would have been her 21st birthday and friends held a celebration in her honor.
"It's special because she couldn't even survive for her 21st birthday and this way, at least she gets a celebration. Most kids look forward to their 21st birthday and going out. At least this way, she gets a celebration in her honor," said Samantha Lawrence, a classmate of Jenni-Lyn.
Kimberly Foody, a friend of the "Jenni-Lyn Watson Team," added, "I didn't know Jenni-Lyn myself, personally, but she's touched my soul. She's touched my life. And she will always be a part of my life."
