Okay, admit it. You donít know who she is. I didnít either. This is the chick that used to be Keanu Reeves girlfriend. By all accounts, a pretty nice woman. She used to work for David Lynch, which raises a fucked up flag or two. I saw the film Mulholland Drive, which was dedicated to her. Thatís sorta what got my interest going. Plus, I didnít realize how close I live to where she died.
When she and Keanu were together, she became pregnant. Awful thing, they lost the baby. Stillborn at Christmas 1999. They broke up shortly afterwards, but remained friends. This fucked up her life.
On April 1, 2001, Jennifer was medicated and drinking at a party held by fucked up Marilyn Manson. She was an April fool. She got to Marilynís house at 8pm, and stayed till 5:50am. Good party man. The weird bit is that someone drove her home (she arrived in someone elseís car) to get her own fucked up car, and she was to return to Mansonís party at his request.
She was driving northbound on Cahuenga in Hollywood, in a 99 Jeep Cherokee. It seems she was going to get onto the 101 freeway, which is always fucked up. She was going around this curve when she plowed into three parked cars. She was not wearing a seat belt. Thatís fucked up. The car flipped three times and she was thrown out and killed instantly. One of the reports states that there was brain matter along the inside roof, driverís side door and in the roadway. Her skull and jaw were shattered and her right eye was protruding from the socket. Boing. Gross. By daylight, the scene looked like this.
She was 28 years old.
Her funeral was held at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Beverly Hills. Jennifer was in a white coffin, covered in pink and white roses. After the funeral, Jennifer's casket was taken to Westwood Memorial Park, where she is buried with their stillborn daughter.
Police found a couple of rolled up dollar bills with a powdery white substance on them, and it wasnít anthrax, I can tell you that. They also found two bottles of Vicodin.
Jenniferís mother is suing Marilyn Manson for wrongful death. Thing is, she only wants 25 grand. I donít know what to think about that.
This just in, February 2003, from Findadeath friend Jim Allen:
Thanks for the info, Jim!
