It is very easy to see how the years of being a newspaper reporter has paid off for this author. He knows the key players and their stories. Sticking to the facts, his composition of the story reads better than most fiction. His interjection of emotion and opinions do not get in the way of the story, they add color. “The Scorpion investigating the Serpent” is a classic example of his work. Even after years in jail, Edwards has never confessed to the crime, nor has he given up the location of Jessica’s remains. Again, this is not fiction, and it is not a pretty story. This story needed to be told – and John Ferak is the best person to do so.
Jessica O'Grady age 19 met Christopher Edwards working at a steakhouse in west Omaha. Christopher also worked at the steakhouse and Jessica spoke about Christopher on a regular basis. They became lovers and Jessica becomes pregnant but Christopher has also been seeing another girlfriend Michelle Wilkin who is also pregnant and they had been discussing marriage. Jessica was only ever a fling to Christopher until the news about her pregnancy he was having fun juggling both girls. But now he decides life is too complicated, so he decides she has to go as he will lose Michelle if she ever finds out about Jessica.
Christopher was seen by Jessica's roommates at their apartment the day before Jessica was last seen. Jessica was text messaging and talking about Christopher to her flat mate throughout the evening. Then after Jessica received a phone call, she told Holly and Tracy to "wish her luck, she was going to see Chris and would catch up with them later. That is the last time the friends ever saw each other, but later that night Jessica sent The last text the girls were ever going to here from their dear friend. Jessica sent the text from Christopher’s about an hour later that said, "No shenanigans for Jessica," meaning no sex for Jessica.
Jessica never returned to her apartment, Jessica's mystifying disappearance led to a report of her missing to the Omaha police. Omaha police interviewed Christopher and obtained permission to search his bedroom. Splattered blood was found on the nightstand, headboard, clock radio and ceiling above the bed. One very large, damp bloodstain was found on the underside of the mattress, covering most of the bottom side of the mattress. Bloodstains were also found on the bedding, a chair in the room, a bookcase and laundry baskets
Christopher had been videotaped purchasing poster paint, white shoe polish, and correction fluid at the drugstore on May 11th. DNA profiles from the blood found in Christopher's bedroom was consistent with Jessica's DNA profile.
Dave Kofoed. team has a reputation of being the best CSI group in all of Nebraska, finding crucial evidence to help convict some of the worst criminals Nebraska has ever seen. In 2007, Christopher was convicted of murdering his teenaged girlfriend, Jessica O'Grady. Her body has never been found but there was enough evidence from the blood on the mattress and in Christopher’s room
As years go by David Kofoed, the lead crime scene investigator, was eventually convicted of tampering with evidence collected in another homicide investigation and sent to prison. Other victims of other cases were found not guilty but no matter what you think of Kofoed and we all know a dirty policeman/women is as low as the people they try to prosecute.
After reading all the evidence in this book my conclusion is Christopher Edwards is about as psychopathic as they come, to this day. He steadfastly maintains his innocence, even when there was so much evidence and blood to convict alone. I cannot understand after so many years how his severely misguided parents be still in denial. Even his x girlfriend Michelle at the trial said she would still marry him if he was acquitted.
Edwards you need to let Jessica’s parents know where you buried her and give them closure but I will not hold my breath and hope your life behind bars is hell on earth.
No body!! No weapon!! Just a bloody mattress & some blood spatter in Jessica's boyfriends bedroom was all they had. That was until a CSI investigator found evidence that others had missed!
The state of Nebraska was able to convict Jessica's boyfriend, Christopher Edwards for her murder, even though her body has still never been found!
