20 Year Old Jenni-Lyn Watson Missing Since 11/19/10 in Liverpool, NY (UPDATE: Body Found, Ex-Boyfriend Arrested)


20 year old Jenny Lyn Watson has been missing since Friday, November 19, 2010.  Jenny Lyn Watson had returned home from school on Nov. 18 for Thanksgiving vacation.  Watson is a junior dance major at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA.  The disappearance is described as extremely uncharacteristic for Jenni-Lynn Watson.

One call was made on the phone from a heavily wooded area near other residences according to authorities. Her Verizon LG enV3 cell phone with a blue cover was also missing; however, investigators examining her cell phone records state that her phone is currently turned off, so it can’t be used to help with the search.

Watson — 5-feet-2 and 100 lbs. with dirty blond hair and brown eyes — was reported missing after her family returned to their home Friday afternoon and found her gone. Her Verizon LG enV3 cell phone with a blue cover was also missing, but Watson’s purse — including her wallet and keys — were left at the home, police sources told FoxNews.com.


Authorities are focusing on the two mile stretch of wooded land because that is where Watson’s cell phone was last used.

 UPDATE II: Search Continues for 20 year old college student Jenny Lyn Watson.

They are again deploying in a wooded area bounded by Morgan Road, Buckley Road, Henry Clay Boulevard and Interstate 481, about two miles from Watson’s home on Donegal Way. More than 600 acres of the zone were searched Tuesday and Wednesday.

UPDATE III: Speculation has fallen on a relationship that Watson apparently ended recently

Speculation has fallen on a relationship that Watson apparently ended recently. One of the missing girl’s friends told Fox that Watson had planned to marry the unnamed man, but that she recently broke off the engagement.

“The breakup didn’t go as cordially as it should have,” the friend said on condition of anonymity.

Earlier this week, another friend and classmate of Watson’s, Devin Ruic, told AOL News that Watson had been having problems with a man in the months leading up to her disappearance. “She told her friends he was treating her ‘stalker-ish,’ ” Ruic said.

Body Found Where Searchers Look for Missing College Student

Officials in central New York have found a body in a park where they were searching for a 20-year-old woman missing since Nov. 19.  Jenni-Lyn Watson had returned home from college to her family’s suburban Syracuse home.

Positive identification had not been made Saturday afternoon but Onondaga County officials say “logic and common sense” suggest the body of a young woman found four miles from the girl’s home suggest the remains are those of Watson.  Her family was notified Saturday afternoon, shortly after the discovery in a town park, in a marshy area behind snow-dusted playing fields.

UPDATE V: Ex-Boyfriend Steven Pieper Arrested.

21 year old Steven Pieper has been arrested and charged with the murder of Jenni-Lyn Watson. As per ABC News, investigators believe that Pieper, who was a suspect early on in the case, killed Watson at her parents’ home shortly before noon on Friday, Nov. 19, then took her to the wooded area near the Clay Town Park.”


A man who had dated Watson, on and off for the last 18  months, has been charged with her murder.

Steven Pieper has pleaded not guilty to killing her and dumping her body in a park.

Pieper made his initial court appearance last night in Clay.

      She leaves home with only a cell phone, makes a call from a wooded area and then cell phone turned off. Oh boy.

      When are these young women going to learn that when you break up with a guy, you must let your family and friends know the details so they can help provide protection.

      I hope there is enough evidence to find and charge the perp.

    7. A Texas Grandfather on November 27th, 2010 8:35 pm

      The ex-boyfriend has been arrested. This means they have enough evidence to get an arrest.

      Now they need to make the evidence stand up for a kidnapping and murder. This guy, if guilty, needs to meet his maker as soon as possible.

      This is an awful story- something no family deserves to deal with- especially during the holiday season. I’m in no way defending this suspect, but too often these days younger people throw out words like “stalker-ish” without knowing the full consequence of their words/actions. Most break-ups don’t end “cordially”- that’s why they are break-ups. What her close friends have said helped police discover motive and lead to an arrest- I just hope he was the real perp.
