With its detailed investigations of genuine crime incidents around the nation, “Dateline” opened the path for investigative journalism and newsmagazines. One such episode, titled “Secret Lives,” examines the fallout from a passionate relationship between a man and his wife’s best friend and how it may have also been a factor in the wife’s murder.
Who is Eileen M. Sayles?
In 2006, Eileen Sayles and Jennifer Ramsaran were introduced through the Girl Scouts, where the former was a troop leader. She has two children and was wed to Patrick Sayles. Additionally, their families were acquainted. But after Jennifer’s best friend mysteriously vanished in December 2012, her body was found in Pharsalia, frozen and naked, three months later.
Eileen was a crucial witness in the 2014 murder trial of Jennifer’s husband Ganesh “Remy” Ramsaran because of her extramarital relationship with the accused. She claimed that she first connected with Remy on Facebook because she was trying to give up smoking and he was a fitness enthusiast. In reality, Jennifer and her kids would turn up to support Remy and Eileen on the day of their marathon training events.
Eileen explained to the jury how the relationship began in February 2012: “Jennifer was running late, and I was down in the basement. I can’t exactly remember what happened. Remy entered the basement. He requested my permission to kiss me. He did.” At Remy’s trial, Chenango District Attorney Joseph McBride also said that Jennifer’s husband’s obsession with Eileen was a possible explanation for the crime.
Jennifer was unaware that her husband was having an affair with her best friend. This is due to the fact that she had developed a new interest in playing the real-time strategy game Kingdoms of Camelot online. Eileen was concerned about Jennifer’s online safety because she frequently interacted with other players. Eileen even discussed the idea of someone from Jennifer’s online life getting connected with the police when her closest friend went missing.
Every time Jennifer was working at her part-time job, Eileen and Remy would have sex. Remy wanted to have sex with Eileen often, according to Eileen’s testimony, and their conversations continued to have erotic overtones even after Jennifer vanished. In addition, Eileen claimed that the defendant had openly declared his love for her and that both of them had at one point talked about divorcing their respective wives. However, Eileen returned to her husband in November 2012 after a disagreement. Remy even sent her an angry email that read, “You flushed me and used me like a tampon. Never again give me a thought.
However, their time apart was brief. On December 10, 2012, the day before Jennifer vanished, Remy and Eileen were back together and had sex in a car on state land in Whaupaunaucau. She remembered giving Remy a ride the following day from the Norwich YMCA as well. It was strange that on that particular day, this man, who never missed an opportunity to make love to her, did not invite her to his room.
Eileen asserted that she had fallen in love with Remy at the time. She described his personality as being particularly adept at elevating your self-esteem. He was skilled at making you feel horrible about yourself as well, though. Additionally, she claimed that despite his yelling at her, he never raised his hand. Additionally, the couple had discussed Eileen relocating to the Ramsaran home following Jennifer’s disappearance. I don’t know the dates, she admitted. None of that is a memory of mine. He did, however, want me to relocate. He did ask me to assist with the kids’ care. Additionally, he had changed her mailing address without telling her, as well as created an email account for her under the name Eileen Ramsaran.
Where is Eileen M. Sayles Today?
Eileen acknowledged on the “Dateline” programme that she had been a terrible friend to Jennifer, but she had not done it intentionally. It was also mentioned that she had made the decision to face the repercussions of her actions head-on and that she believed that everything would have been fine if she had never met Remy. Despite admitting her error, Eileen was not a horrible person. Although we don’t have reliable information regarding Eileen’s current whereabouts, we do know that she and her husband Patrick divorced while Remy’s trial was still going on.
