ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A woman in Missouri fell to her death in a parking garage while reportedly recording video of her husband attacking her, according to reports from Fox Detroit.
Allissa Jenkins, 27, and her husband Bradley, 30, were at a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game last weekend when they got into a heated argument on the parking garage roof following the game’s conclusion.
An affidavit from police indicated that Bradley Jenkins was “agitated and appeared to be intoxicated.” Allissa was reportedly recording video on her cellphone during the altercation.
Investigators said that the video evidence caught the moment she fell from the elevated garage.
“During the recording, you can hear her yell for him to quit punching her face. She eventually drops the camera. Shortly after that, you hear her scream as she falls and you hear the thump of her body hitting the ground.”
Police received a 911 call that a woman had fallen from the parking garage. When they arrived, they discovered Bradley Jenkins covered in blood and hunched over his wife’s body. Allissa’s phone was allegedly still recording when police found it.
When Bradley was brought in for questioning, he apparently wasn’t fully transparent and told detectives “several lies” during the interview.
“He claimed he had never been on the rooftop with her, but the video shows them together on the rooftop right when the video began. He also claimed the argument never got physical, yet on the recording, you hear the argument being physical,” the police affidavit said.
He was charged with domestic assault and is being held on a $100,000 bond. Investigators are looking into whether the suspect should be charged with homicide.
The couple was reportedly just married on May 22 in Las Vegas. Both were employed by the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Allissa had posted about love and happiness on New Year’s Eve, putting up a picture of her and Bradley.
If 2018 brought us this much love and happiness I cannot wait to see what 2019 brings us! Happy New Year!
It’s unclear whether the couple had issues before the night of Allissa’s death. Social media posts from the last six months showed the couple looking happy. She posted on her Instagram following the Vegas marriage.
She wrote, “Last week, I married my best friend,” adding the hashtags ‘#loveofmylife’ and ‘#livingmybestlife’.
In December, she posted, “One day someone will love you the way you deserve to be loved and you won’t have to fight for it.”
“He claimed he had never been on the rooftop with her, but the video shows them together on the rooftop right when the video began.”
In a bit of tragic irony, a report showed that last year on her birthday, Allissa asked for people to make donations to the charity organization “Futures Without Violence”.
