A 33-year old mother, Melissa Jenkins, was found in the Connecticut River after being strangled to death and covered in bleach.
The suspects arrested were Alan Prue, 30, and his wife Patricia Prue, 33. They lured Jenkins out of her house by calling and her and asking for help because their car had broken down. When she arrived, Alan strangled her, then put her in the backseat of their car to take it home, where they put the body on a tarp and poured bleach all over it. They weighed the body down with cement blocks before throwing the body in the Connecticut River, which separates New Hampshire from Vermont.
Allan Prue had asked out Jenkins before, and she had said that she felt uncomfortable around him. Also, Prue had told police that he was trying to “get a girl.” Prue, that Sunday night, showed up an hour late to work. His mother, Donna Prue, believes that her son is innocent.
The police were first alerted when a friend called the police because Jenkins’s two-year old son was found unharmed, idling in the back of her SUV. She was a single mother and a science teacher at St. Johnsbury Academy.
The Prues were arrested on Wednesday, and are facing charges of 2nd degree murder charges and improperly disposing of a body.
