Update: KRBC TV in Abilene recently contacted me and they are doing an update on cold cases. An update regarding Jennifer
may be broadcast on Friday Feb 5th. I'll post a link when it airs.
Following graduation from University of Montana, Jennifer Lynn Olson - Servo had landed
her first television reporting position for KRBC-TV in Abilene, Texas in July 2002. Less than three months later,
on September 18, 2002, her body was found in her apartment. Jennifer was the victim of blunt force trauma
and strangulation. She had also been sexually assaulted. In the past 10+ years, Jennifer's story has been
told through many media outlets. The search for justice for Jennifer continues.
This is an Unsolved Military Homicide.
There is a lot of information that is not available to the public regarding this investigation. If you're with a law
enforcement agency or military office that is authorized to pursue justice in this case, please contact me at: email@example.com
September 16, 2014 was the 12 yr anniversary of my daughter's homicide. She would have been 35 yr old on Sept 23, 2014.
LITTLE KNOWN FACT: The University of Montana's newspaper The Kaimin reported on February 11, 2003, that Jennifer'
library account was used to check out 4 books on November 6, 2002. The title of the article is "Slain UM Grad's
Library Account Used After Her Death." The books were never returned. While there was
possible mistaken entry by U of M's library system, it was an intriguing lead. I asked APD what the titles were, but
my inquiry was just another ignored request.
Years later I tracked down the retired Missoula Police Dept. detective
who followed up on the Montana end of the investigation. I learned that the books were checked out the very week
the prime suspect had returned to Missoula. The retired detective admitted surprise at the fact that APD never even requested
the book titles. I went back and forth with the legal dept at U of M trying to learn the titles. But was denied because
I am not the the executor of my own daughter's estate. The books were mainly about philosophy which fits exactly the profiling of the prime suspect
that my efforts found. Jennifer's purse holding her library card had been stolen during the homicide. The prime
suspect is narcissistic and if the books were another "trophy" APD would have absolutely no idea if the books were
on his bookshelf. Very frustrating.
I battled back and forth with the U of M legal department. Because I am not the executor of my daughter's estate, they refused
to allow me the book titles.
I get asked about Jennifer's little buddy, Mr. Binx, by cat lovers every once in a while. Thanks for asking and I just want to let you know he's doing great! What a great companion he is, and
I'm so lucky to keep him in our family. I know Jennifer is here with him as well.
Under NO CONDITION should Capt. Ralph Sepulveda, U.S. Army Center For Health Promotion in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, be allowed alone with an underage female juvenile! He should have been in prison before ever meeting Jennifer.
Sepluveda recently transferred to Aberdeen Maryland.
For 22 years, Jennifer's proper name had been Jennifer Olson. She grew up in Columbia Falls, Montana and graduated
Columbia Falls High School in 1998.
Be aware of aggressive hostile
parenting and protect your child from heartless manipulation intended to seperate your child from the loving
relationship, the support and the guidance only you can give. Jennifer was not a Servo.
The CBS 48 Hours Mystery program "Deadline for Justice" about Jennifer has started broadcast in syndication on Investigation Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel and most recently The Oprah Winfrey Network.
This is one of the last images I have of Jennifer. Also in the photo is Ralph Sepulveda.
Ralph Sepulveda 'refused to take lie detector test' following the murder of Jennifer. - Cosmopolitan (Sept. 2003)
'Everything about Sepulveda is suspicious' - APD detective quote in AY Magazine (June 2006)
Sepulveda never offered condolences to Jennifer's family despite having met Jennifer's mother twice, including in Abilene when Jennifer's mother left Jenn with him after he had followed her there.
Sepulveda refuses to cooperate in any way with investigators now.
Most recent information says that Captain Ralph Sepulveda is stationed at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
If you have any information regarding the past and/or present of Ralph Sepulveda of Colorado Springs CO, Tacoma WA, Missoula Montana, Phoenix Arizona and Tennessee, please send it via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
The April 16, 2008 edition of Our hometown newspaper, The Hungry Horse News included an article about Jennifer and ongoing effort to gather information in the case.
Chad McGhee has made a new musical video tribute to Jennifer. Jennifer Lynn Olson - Servo Tribute on youtube.com. Chad is one of many who have been inspired by the Amazing Jennifer, and I really appreciate his tribute and help in keeping Jennifer's story alive.
This is the last Father's Day card I'll ever get from Jennifer. I've included the June 18, 2001 postmark. And it was from Jennifer, not her mother.
Following graduation from University of Montana with a degree in journalism, 22 year old Jennifer Lynn Olson - Servo, an active U.S. Army Reservist, moved to Abilene TX and worked at her first full-time tv reporter job at KRBC TV. She was followed to Texas by a
34 year old former Army Ranger who she had recently met at Army Reserve training in Helena, Montana. Jennifer Servo (she'd used "Servo" the last year of her life) had been in Abilene less than 3 months when colleagues became concerned that she hadn't returned phone calls. They asked her apartment manager to check on her. She was found dead, a homicide victim from head trauma and strangulation.
Jennifer Lynn Olson, a native of Columbia Falls, Montana, enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve in 1996 and served until she was murdered on September 16, 2002 in Abilene Texas.
There were no signs of forced entry or a struggle and all DNA results were accountable to friends and acquaintances. Jennifer apparently knew the killer and the degree of violence indicates rage. It is a matter of time until more sophisticated forensic technologies, along with determined police work, will result in charges against the killer. Until then, we ask that anyone with any information regarding this unsolved crime or the articles taken from Jennifer's apartment, submit the information through the web site and it will be forwarded to the Abilene Police Department. The Tips Form can be sent anonymously if you prefer. The Abilene Police and Jennifer Olson's family are making every effort to bring the dirtbag to justice. We appreciate all the victim and crime resource web sites that host links and/or banners to this web site.
The missing items include:
A Guess? purse, square tote "Eva" model
A "Kyocera" brand cell phone
Three seasons of HBO series "Sex in the City" DVD's and a "Saving Private Ryan" DVD
