Jamie Faith, the director of technology for American Airlines, was ruthlessly murdered in October 2020 in front of his Oak Cliff, Dallas County, house. His wife, Jennifer, was unlucky enough to have witnessed his murder, and the entire neighbourhood stepped up to help her during this trying time. In “48 Hours: The Plot to Kill Jamie Faith,” a CBS television documentary, the gory specifics of the case are in-depthly described. Everyone was astonished by Jennifer’s involvement in the episode, though. Let’s examine it more closely, shall we?
Who is Jennifer Faith?
In Phoenix, Arizona, in October 2005, Jennifer Lynne Faith went on a blind date and met Wisconsin native Jamie Faith. She has two prior divorces and one of her marriages produced an Amber-named daughter. Due to their shared hobbies, Jennifer and Jamie clicked right away and got married in 2012 in Las Vegas. Amber and Jamie also had a beautiful chemistry, and after Amber turned 18, Jamie officially adopted her. After US Airways and American Airlines merged in 2017, the family relocated from Tucson, Arizona to Oak Cliff in Dallas County, Texas, as Jamie received a promotion. Jamie was a director of IT for the airline.
Jennifer has been a Regional Director of an inpatient rehab hospital since 2012 and has a master’s degree in speech pathology. Everyone who knew Jennifer and Jamie thought they were the ideal pair and were very hospitable. Additionally, Jennifer believed that everyone yearned for the marriage she enjoyed with her husband. They will commemorate their 15th year of marriage on October 8, 2020.
On October 9, 2020, while Jamie and Jennifer were heading for their morning stroll, they were ambushed by a masked assailant who shot them seven times. The unidentified intruder then tried stealing her jewellery and taped her hands together. After a brief battle, he drove away in a nearby parked black Nissan pickup truck. Jennifer was only slightly hurt, but Jamie tragically passed away right away. After the horrific tragedy, residents of Oak Cliff stepped up to support Jennifer and Amber, even raising over $60,000 via a GoFundMe account for their financial needs.
Later, Jennifer gave a TV interview to a nearby news station in which she pleaded with the locals to help identify her husband’s killer. While everyone felt bad for her, the police were fortunate to discover their first piece of proof when a neighbour shared a picture they had taken of the attacker’s truck. Another neighbour shared CCTV video that had recorded the incident’s audio. The black Nissan Titan truck has a “T” decal on the driver’s side back window, according to the video.
As soon as the authorities discovered some unexpected information on Jennifer’s phone, the entire inquiry was redirected. She and Darrin Lopez were involved in a number of conversations and texts, which suggests that they had been dating outside of marriage since approximately March 2020. He is an army veteran who acquired a disability as a result of a traumatic brain injury he sustained in Iraq. Darrin, a local of Cumberland Furnace, Tennessee, dated Jennifer while they were both in high school and college. The old lovers had reconnected and begun an emotional romance about seven months before to Jamie’s passing.
When the authorities carried out overhead surveillance of Darrin’s Tennessee home, they discovered the truck that matched the murder’s depiction in the surveillance tape. On January 11, 2021, he was taken into custody, and from his house were taken the purported murder weapon, the mask Jennifer had claimed the murderer was wearing, and two credit cards with her name. As the investigation went on, it was discovered that Jennifer had sent Darrin multiple emails while pretending to be her husband and an ex-colleague, inciting him to kill Jamie.
In these conversations, Jennifer accused Jamie of abusing her physically and sexually, and she provided downloads of stock photos to support her claims. According to the authorities, a furious Darrin allegedly gave in to Jennifer’s plea to save her and killed him. In the 12 days that followed the murder, he and Jennifer maintained their close communication, and when the police noticed the sticker on his truck, she persuaded him to take it off. The couple also started making coordinated alibis and making plans for their future together.
In addition to giving Darrin expensive gifts like a TV and plane tickets, Jennifer also stole $58,000 out of the GoFundMe account over the course of two months. She also gave Darrin two credit cards. She also submitted an insurance claim to Jamie’s workplace for about $629,000 in death benefits for future use. Jennifer kept in touch with Darrin via a third person in the same prison even after he was taken into custody.
“No matter what has transpired, I am with him and always will be. Because every communication is being watched, I’ve had to be careful.Please tell him right away that I will always be yours,” Jennifer texted. Jennifer was taken into custody on February 24, 2021, on suspicion of obstructing justice. In September 2021, she was also charged with exploiting interstate commerce in the commission of murder-for-hire after Darrin allegedly admitted to manipulating him to kill Jamie while they were both in detention.
