I just want to say that you all outrage me!!!! I am a close friend of the family and I was at most of the last trial and guess what, not one of you "fat bastards" were there!!!! How dare you get on here and say such hurtful things!!! If you want to say something bad then you should look no further then her real killer. Her HUSBAND and his accomplice Richard Christy!!!! As for Brant from WI he is your UNCLE not you grandmothers nephew! It says a lot about your character not to stick behind your family even in the most destitute of times! Shame on you! If you donít believe in Kentís Innocence then you should just keep your mouth shut! The rest of his/your family did nothing to you nor is any of this their fault and yet you deem it necessary to drag them through the mud and shame them further. They love their father and whole-heartedly believe in his innocence!!!! My heart goes out the Jensen family as they have all lost someone very dear to them and, because the real murder is someone that they continue to love.... Sometimes you are to close to the forest to see the trees and for that I forgive you but you should know that I was at the second trial and you said very hurtful things to me and for that you are very wrong and you as well should be ashamed of your selfís! You are not the only ones who lost a family member and you shouldnít take it out on Kentís kids! They had nothing to do with this and itís not wrong for them to love their father. You don't say things like that to Linda's husband now do you?

I am sorry for your loss Lisa. I am the person that came forward to help solve this case. And for the record to all of you that believe in Kents innocence your crazy! I personnally was involved in this situation and I do know the truth based on what I actually witness and went through. So, to all Kent's family members you been insulted by his smoothe and charming ways and con-artist style! Rest assurred the law enforcement agency and the jury got it right.

Your obviousely a friend who wants to believe what his kids believe. It's normal to want to belive that your father didn't do this, but I didn't want to believe he could have done this, either, but I know it to be true and your dead wrong!

i lived in elk river from 1979-1981, i was looking at homes ect. in the area, just seeing whats new since i lived there, when by accident i came upon the story of kent. he was a good high school friend of mine back in the day, for the few years i lived there. he came to see me once in the summer of 1982 in tulsa,ok. for a week to look for work, that was the last time i saw or heard from him. i just wanted to say how shocked i am and how sorry i am for all those involved.

Hi I used to work with Linda and knew her husband. He loved her so much and they were so happy. He would of walked on water for her. I also went to school with Kent, I do believe that justice was done when they found him guilty.

angie,

you slept with a married man with 4 kids and got pissed when he wouldn't leave her for you. Only when you could get money and back at him did you turn him in. You are nothing but a home wrecker. You will have to answer to a higher power for all the lies and lives ruins you created. May God have mercy on your soul.

this comment that defaces Angie is ridiculous. She came forward with information, that would solve a murder case - the justice system was correct with whom they convicted. They did prove credibile evidence to prosecute.

On top of everything, you have no idea what Kent told Angie about his life when they were in the privacy of each other's company. She was not being the homewrecker! The man is the cheater, and if his marriage went to S*** it serves him right.

The information brought forth to the police, was not revenge and was a act of good that she felt needed to happen! I commend you Angie you are very strong for doing so!! BRAVO the information provided helped to solve a murder and rape...Just think this man could have done this again, so you may have saved another's life, even your own!

what about how pissed angie got when he wouldn't leave his wife for him? funny she 'knew' this information but only came forward after there was a cash reward. Also there is evidence of more than 1 sperm donor and DNA evidence that points to another male NOT Kent Jones. To San Francisco, I have personally seen BOTH sides of evidence and know of jury tampering and judicial misconduct. There is no way Linda Jensen's soul is at rest, knowing the true murderer is out there as well as knowing the lives ruined in the wake of this piss poor job of the justice system.

I just stumbled upon this sight when visiting the memories of christmas that will not again be this year for some very sad nieces & nephews. Thank you for all that have stood by the truth. I miss my brother very much and do believe in his innocents no matter what your thoughts on this may be. My wish for his kids and close family is that they might all find the peace in their hearts that the lords has given them this year and really feel it.
Thank you for all the keep the faith-er's out there.

OKAY so if you knew them so well why is it that he has a history of abusing her a # of times? Ever talk to her about that or why they were divorced the first time? And why do you suppose the mail lady say richard christ at the scene the morning this happened and left shortly after this for another state?

The right decision? Who's the truth or the bull shit the lawyers lead people as the truth? If you were one of the jury members How old was the dna? And Who's hair was that? Ooh thats right it was never tested and for finger prints, hand prints any thing that might has said kent was the person to take her life? This case has been running around in my mind for 8 long years how about one of you coming forward and giving us the real truth you don't know for sure. DO YOU.

I am Kent's 2nd cousin. He was not a good husband or father for having an affair but I have to same they same for Linda. But one thing he is not is a killer. The whole thing is truely sad. But if you clear you head of anger and really look at the evidence you will see he did not do this. What about the postal worker who saw the man leave her house? I am sorry for everyone's lost including my family. We have a legal system not a justice system.

This hole thing has been a tragedy. People can not tell the truth from the lies because they believe what they read and what they hear from others some people are just plain ignorant. It would be nice angie if people would take the time and really look the all the evidence before they make a judgement but it is easier for them because we were there and we heard alot of things that they did not so they just assume which we all know makes any ass out of you and me. Keep up your faith. For me I do not know for sure only Linda knows they whole thing but what I believe is that I think that I knew him pretty well and can not even for 1 minute think that he was ever capable of this crime and I have talked to alot of people about this who did not know who I was an no pieces fit. Not even one. And as for her family I tried to reach out to them to tell them I feel for them what they have to go through no one should and I only hope that they find some piece that only god can give them.

This is from a person not involved with either family. If she was she would know how the violence needs to stop. Even the words people mumble breed violence and this daughter of a woman who was taken in a terriable way does not need any more violence in her life bring her up not down.
