True crime enthusiasts are widely aware of the meticulously investigated and very comprehensive instances that are recounted on NBC’s “Dateline.” There is a reason the programme has been on the air since 1992 and has established the standard for investigative journalism, after all. The programme examines the story of Ganesh “Remy” Ramsaran, whose wife vanished in 2012 around Christmas, in an episode titled “Secret Lives.”
Who is Ganesh “Remy” Ramsaran?
Ganesh had been married to Jennifer, his college sweetheart, for about 13 years when the atrocity was committed. At State University College in New Paltz, they first met. Jen was shy and gentle, whereas Remy was boisterous and talkative, according to their friends and relatives. The family lived in New Berlin in upstate New York and included the couple’s 3 children (2 daughters and 1 son). Jennifer was a stay-at-home mother, while Remy was a project manager for IBM. He has a strong interest in physical fitness and once completed 26 marathons in one year.
Jennifer reportedly left her house on December 11, 2012 to buy a frock for her daughter, but she never came back. In Pharsalia, close to an embankment, her body was found frozen in February 2013. Also naked was she. A homicide was determined through an autopsy. The medical professional did note that she had received a blow to the head before passing away, even though no cause of death could be confirmed. Rob, a British man she had an emotional affair with while playing video games online, was initially suspected of being involved in the crime. However, Jennifer’s husband was ultimately found guilty.
According to the prosecution, Remy returned home around 8:15 a.m., whacked his wife in the head with a blunt weapon while she was playing Kingdoms of Camelot in bed. Then, they claimed, he carried his wife’s body to her van and discarded it there before getting rid of both her phone and her vehicle. He then made his way to the Norwich YMCA at 12:44 p.m.
Even though Remy was detained and accused of second-degree murder, the evidence was somewhat speculative. The prosecution claimed that his liaison with his wife’s best friend, Eileen Sayles, served as the inspiration for the crime. Also at risk was a $200,000 life insurance policy that he had obtained on her behalf at IBM. Remy also said in a talk with his best friend that Jennifer would never get the kids and that he wanted to divorce his wife for Eileen. This was regarded by authorities as a further reason. In actuality, her husband found her phone, not the cops, and Remy’s explanation could not be corroborated.
The couple’s bed had a bloodstain on it that the investigators determined to be the husband and wife’s blood. Even Eileen, who had driven him home from the YMCA that day, said that she thought it odd that Remy, who would take advantage of every opportunity to bed her, had not invited her into his room that day. Eileen initially supported him during the trial, but as she listened to his testimony in court, she began to believe that he was lying.
Where is Ganesh Remy Ramsaran Today?
The project manager, who was 39 at the time, repeatedly insisted that he was innocent and that his life was great. He was, nevertheless, convicted of killing Jennifer. In the Chenango County jail, where he was awaiting sentencing for the crime, he offered a corrections officer a $100,000 bribe in exchange for his assistance in escaping. He was also charged with another second-degree felony for bribery because of this.
Remy was so given a prison term of 25 years to life. But after winning an appeal for a fresh trial based on insufficient legal representation in July 2016, a higher court swiftly overturned this ruling. However, a Chenango County judge once more mandated a new trial for him in October 2022 due to the “blatant dishonesty” displayed by his old attorneys towards him when he first retained them as his defence team. Remy, age 48, has now been released on parole in Chenango County, New York, since no more court proceedings have been set.
