We spoke to her brother Will, who tells us Jennifer struggled with substance abuse and mental health issues, but did not deserve to be murdered.
“There are a lot of things to blame for her death. And a lot of people to blame, as a society we don’t take care of people who need it most. We don’t take care of people with invisible problems, invisible problems like substance abuse and mental health problems,” he said.
Nevin leaves behind a 5-year-old son.
