Jennifer Ertman
Birth: Aug. 15, 1978
Death: Jun. 24, 1993
Harris County
Texas, USA

Jennifer was a victim of homicide. She and her friend Elizabeth were students at Waltrip High School in Houston. Their deaths resulted in an outpouring of grief in the local community and spurred changes in criminal legislation in the state of Texas, which enabled the families of crime victims to speak to the defendant at trial and witness the execution of said defendant. The graves of Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena are about 200 yards apart in Woodlawn Garden of Memories Cemetery. Corey Mitchell's book "Pure Murder," which details the story of the killings, was released in 2008 and became a best seller.
