Young love can be an intense thing, and it can get even more intense when murder is thrown into the mix. Such is the case in the tale of Jens Soering and Elizabeth Haysom. The pair had a somewhat toxic relationship, but when Elizabeth's parents interfered, they wound up dead in March of 1985. The couple fled, and when they were caught Jens confessed to the murders. It might have all ended there, but the thing is that the evidence doesn't exactly point to Jens. Was Jens Soering framed for murdering his girlfriend's parents?
The Elizabeth Haysom murder controversy has been going on since Jen's life sentence was announced. What makes it so compelling is that evidence is continually piling up that what really happened is this girl killed her parents and framed her boyfriend afterwards. It wouldn't be the first time someone was falsely found guilty. But is it true? Is Jens guilty? Or has he been played from the start?
We don't know for sure, but it's hard to deny that the whole story is fascinating. With a request for a pardon already in the water, who can guess what the next chapter of Jens Soering's life may hold?
