Shooting victim’s story to be focus of ‘The First 48’ show

The story of 25-year-old Crystal Jenkins – who was reportedly shot to death in Dallas late last year just prior to her expected testimony in Union County Circuit Court – will be featured this week in the A&E network program "The First 48."
The show is about homicide detectives attempting to solve murder cases ing through quick establish leads. - Crystal Jenkins The episode, "Silenced," will air tonight at 8 p.m., and again on Friday at midnight, according to scheduling information provided by the network’s web site. A&E is on local cable channel 29 in El Dorado.
The basis for the program stems from the "beat-the-clock" mentality of detectives, who know their chance of solving a case is cut in half if they don’t get a lead in the fi rst 48 hours of a homicide.
The reality show takes viewers behind the scenes of investigations with access to crime scenes, autopsies and interrogations.
Detectives Bob Ermatinger and Ken Penrod investigated the Jenkins’ murder in the White Rock Lake area of Dallas, according to the web site.
Authorities have said their prime suspect in the case is Lavelle D. Evans, 28, who was sen tenced to an 80-year prison term following his drug conviction last November in El Dorado. Evans was out on parole from federal prison at the time of Jenkins’ disappearance.
Jenkins was found dead in Dallas around the time she would’ve testifi ed at Evans’ state trial last October. Her death delayed the trial un til November and her sister, also facing drug charges, agreed to testify against Evans for the state.
Evans’ brother, Johnny Frank Evans, is sched uled for a jury trial on drug charges starting Monday.

I think the detectives did a good job on finding out who done this to my cousin. She didnt deserve what happened to her. I hope all people that are on drugs or sell drugs seen this and know what can and will happen to them. WE LOVE YOU CRYSTAL AND YOU WILL FOREVER BE IN OUR HEARTS!!!Sad

When shall we at last start understand all the evil drugs do to us and our children!!! There's so much info nowadays about devastating effects of taking drugs (e.x. a documentary "Say no to drugs" at http://rapid4me.com ), but children still die because of them

ok so i think what happened to her is terrible and i wish it hadnt but to be fair death DOES NOT make saints of us all and i knew that girl from an early age as well as most of her family and the life they were leading is the life that they chose werent forced into CHOSE and by all accounts were enjoying up until they were caught and i mean its not rocket science people a few years later it was no surprise to hear about a drug deal gone wrong(speculation) involving her sister shooting a guy and showing up at the police station with the stolen gun she did it with and then just a few weeks later being caught with a large amount of cash and some drugs dont be stupid people pity the girl for her choices and the outcome but if anything tell the real story about who this girl was and how she led her life to discourage others from walking the same path
