Jennifer Huston’s Mysterious Death: Did Missing Mom Not Want To Be Found?

Wed, August 6, 2014 12:04pm EDT by 36 Comments 54,962 Article Views

New details in the disappearance of Jennifer Huston have been revealed, and they suggest that she may not have wanted anyone to find her. Police have shared that they believe the reason Jennifer’s phone lost service is because the mother-of-two turned it off.

Jennifer Huston, 38, disappeared without  a trace while running a normal batch of errands near her Dundee, Oregon home. Unfortunately, after 12 grueling days of searching for the missing mother and wife, her body was discovered in a wooded area on a private batch of land in another town. Now, police are slowly but surely revealing new details about Jennifer’s disappearance, including some information that suggests she may not have wanted anyone to find her.

Jennifer Huston’s Disappearance: Did She Intentionally Turn Her Phone Off?

While investigators put together the pieces of Jennifer’s disappearance and death, more information has been revealed surrounding her mysterious death.

Police have shared that they believe Jennifer turned her own cell phone off, which is why no one could get in touch with her after she disappeared. The last time Jennifer’s cell phone emitted a “ping” revealing her location was at around 6:30pm on July 24, the day she vanished, near the Circle K gas station where she was last seen.

There are also multiple reports that Jennifer allegedly purchased sleeping pills and took out cash before disappearing.

UPDATE: Jennifer Huston: No Signs Of Foul Play, Death Remains A Mystery

All of this evidence suggests that Jennifer may have intentionally disappeared and hoped not to be found.

Unfortunately, until police reveal the circumstances of how her body was discovered, as well as her autopsy results, nothing is confirmed.

Jennifer’s Family Devastated After Body Found

Jennifer left behind her two sons, ages 2 and 6, as well as her devastated husband, Kallen. Kallen never gave up hope that Jennifer was out there somewhere, and even after police stopped searching for her he rallied friends, family, and supporters to continue the search.

“Jennifer, if you can see this or hear this, I love you. You’ve got a ton of support from the community, if you can come home… please do so,” Kallen said in an emotional statement on Aug. 2. “The boys need you. I need you.”

Kallen and others were constantly updating a Facebook page called “Find Jennifer Huston” with information and search area requests. Sadly, the last update came after Jennifer’s body was discovered and requested privacy for the grieving family at this time.

Our thoughts remain with Jennifer’s friends and family at this difficult time.

This case is haunting me…i sincerely feel that the gas, the circle k and bank stops were all part of a bigger plan, to make it look like jennifer herself had a plan…these stops could and would be very trackable by law enforcement…i think the perpetrator asked her to make these stops in advance for whatever reason…then shortly afterwards, she was killed, her car then pulled/towed out and planted where she was found dead…the perp drove away in the other vehicle…i really feel like there is someone getting away with murder, at least so far…this was no suicide. i’m not looking to be bashed on here..my own scenario….i just want deserved justice for jennifer.

Why do women always think leaving kids is so impossible? They were probably brats who drove her nuts. The husband was probably an a-hole too, may have cheated, or otherwise made her depressed.

…and jennifer seemed like such a devoted mom…seemed like typical SAHM with good and bad days…she and children kept up nicely…can see the love/proudness in her pics…i think this is a TRAVESTY that law enforcement accepts this as suicide all packaged up in a bow (because she was found hanged).trying digging just a little deeper, dim-witted “detectives”?. REALLY….i feel her side of the family are either unbelieveably gullible or plain not too bright, as well, IN SPITE, of her own father being a detective,….my opinion only…aaaargh.

This is not the only case. There was a new grad student who drove 90 miles, parked in a junior college lot, climbed into and locked the trunk, then committed suicide with an over the counter medication. She also told her roommate she would run errands.

If police correctly investigate, this was a Subliminal Distraction episode.

They happen frequently to college students. Some run away from hallucinated unbearable, unsolvable delusional situations or commit suicide.Remember Brian Shaffer, Maura Murray, Michael Negrete, Justin Gains, or Josh Guimond? They are all still missing.

I so agree!! Why is it being forgotten that last yr a young man from Arizona was found In the oregon woods just yards from his vehicle. Ruled suicide. Seems more than ironic to me. Plus I highly doubt Jennifer bought trail mix and Gatorade as her last meal of choice. Small sum of money or not.. Who pulls money out for their suicide? Police are playin it low while they decide what they’re actually being faced with I bet.

You are correct. It does happen all the time. What should concern you is that this woman had no indication of depression or any other problem.

The frequency with which it happens to college students during times of intense study says it is being caused by a problem engineers found fifty years ago when it caused mental breaks for office workers. (See examples – College Suicides page on my site.)

Computers allow the problem engineers found to enter homes and dorm rooms. You or anyone you known who has a computer at home can make the mental break causing design mistake. When it happened to my wife she heard voices and had depressive crying episodes about guilt for impossible criminal situations. (See Connie Tucker’s hospital records on site.)

Write the Police Chief at Dundee and demand he visit the Jennifer Huston page at VisionAndPsychosis.Net.

I hope someone in law enforcement, or a district attorney, takes a long hard look at this case, It sounds like they are jumping to conclusions. If she did not leave a note the can be certified to be in her hand writing, and not written under duress, it cannot be determined so quickly, not based on anything written or said at this point. Small towns can be a tough place to get justice or a good forensic investigation. The husband, or anyone close to her should be more than willing to be questioned thoroughly. How many times have we seen killers putting on a big act of fear and grief. Death by Benadryl? I worked in a Medical Examiners office for 5 years, and I never heard of it. They better get a warrant for her computer. I have had three of my acquainances commit suicide, and though some people make a clumsy attempt to either get attention or just from being naive, they made sure they took an action that was 99.9% sure to work. I believe with a 95% sureness, based on what we are hearing, Ms. Huston died by homicide.

One thing that resonated with me was early on in an interview her husband said he suspected she was in a ditch somewhere and that was where to begin the search. Odd or no?

So far, no one has corroborated any statements that she exhibited any of the typical signs of a suicidal person. She wasn’t withdrawn, depressed, giving things away, making comments that raise questions about her state of mind, no comments related to not being around or people being better off if she were gone, no note, etc.

The only things that come close are that most women who commit suicide do not want to leave a mess for their families to clean up, so they get everything in order and then choose poisoning of some sort.

maybe more life details will emerge once things settle down a bit. Perhaps there were signs and no one recognized them at the time.

The journalism is less than to be desired as far as real information; in order to maybe help others. To get it straight–The ‘sleeping pills’ were Benadryl. A stay-at-home mom may not have cash, and she wanted some…went to ATM; the amount WAS NOT a large one, according to the ATM records. The mother behaved ‘business as usual’ in front of everyone…her family, the gas station, the Rite-Aid store. She may have taken Benadryl before…it’s not actually sleep medication/pills…it’s an antihistamine with side effects of drowsiness. A person who may be committing suicide (speculating) will behave in a normal fashion in order to get to the moment when they will finally get to a place/location they need to be, in order to carry out their objective (which sometimes is only a matter of hours…not necessarily days and days…the suicidal objectifying can come and go..linger and finally the person feels compelled to let it take hold of them). This said, it’s always a mystery how a parent of children can take their lives. My own brother did; 13 years ago. I’ll never really understand. Heart is for the survivors of this tragedy in Oregon.

I completely disagree with the theory that she would not have withdrawn cash if she was going to kill herself. I had a relative who also committed suicide…before she did it, she drained her bank account of several thousand dollars and took a trip to another part of the country. She spent a week on the vacation of a lifetime and then committed suicide at the end of the vacation. Guess she didn’t want the family to be the ones to find her. I guess my point is we don’t know what happened or why it happened…until you walk in someone else’s shoes, you have no idea what is going on in their mind. There is no “right way” to commit suicide, if that’s what happened in this case. We really needs to respect everyone involved in this-how would you feel if this was your loved one and your family who was being ripped apart and judged?

Nah, I’m not buying that. Too many thoughtful actions. Turning off the cell phone. Hiding or semi-hiding her car in the woods well off the road, not just pulled to the side of the road. Taking down a rope, driving through and then replacing the rope. These are deliberate actions. Someone who was feeling suddenly ill would just pull over to the roadside.

No matter how, what a tragedy. I had hoped for a positive outcome here.

I agree. Her actions were completely deliberate. Besides turning off the phone, cops said “no foul play”, “We have a good idea of what happened” and that the public is not at risk of danger (i.e. there’s no killer). LIke JC pointed out, Jennifer had to open and close a private roped gate, pass a visible “no trespassing” sign, and drive into a remote spot on a narrow road thru wooded property. Also, the minor headaches that she happened to mention in her final days were likely an excuse given to her husband so as to not give away her emotional state – she hid her plan well to succeed. I am saddest for the little boys she left behind. They will likely never understand Mommy’s reasons for leaving them. :(

I feel sorry for her but she didn’t need to kill herself if she did.I don’t get why people don’t realize that they can work out ANY PROBLEM ?,there is a solution for everything.Also they don’t think about who they are hurting this woman left behind a 2 and 6 year old plus a husband and extended family.These little boys don’t have a mother now because she selfishly decided life wasn’t good anymore.These little boys will always have that burden on their shoulders that maybe they had something to do with her not being happy in life and her husband will have to suffer raising them and dealing with his lack of a wife.Regardless of the situation it’s really sad when people take their own lives for whatever reason,there are so many people that want to live badly dying form cancer or other diseases so many children being killed by their parent’s.Life is a gift.

I completely agree. Absolutely nothing adds up. If she wanted to take her own life, all of the events that preceded that don’t make sense. And why would she drive to that location? My feeling is that there is much, much more than meets the eye here.

They’re pretty certain she took her life; confirmation will follow shortly. Once you are aware of all the evidence, it will be clear to you. I know it is very difficult, and distressing, to think that a mother of two children could do this, but people sadly take their lives everyday somewhere. Look at Leanne Bearden earlier this year: a fun-loving wife that had been traveling the world with her handsome husband (they had a travel blog), up and disappears one day…only to hang herself in a nearby wooded lot. Everyone screamed “foul play” since there were no obvious warning signs, but the evidence was clear and her husband has admitted that she suffered from depression even though she was outwardly a seemingly happy person. Jennifer is another person who should’ve seen a doctor about depression and taken medicine. But many women are afraid of being stigmatized, in a western society that practically expects women to be “supermom & wife”, attractive, ambitious, and whose “got it all together”. If only someone had told her that it’s okay to feel overwhelmed, to be “imperfect”, and that there’s help out there without judgment. Oh, if only. Her husband and boys will undoubtedly wonder about what could’ve been. My heart goes out to them and may they find happiness again.

The autopsy was just released. It was ruled a suicide by asphyxiation. She either hung herself, like Leanne Bearden, or tied bag around her head. She had taken all the Benadryl that she purchased and left a suicide note for the family. No murder, no conspiracy. My thoughts are with her boys and her family.

wow, another person with an actual brain!! (Anne Marie in Ireland) The LE in Oregon seem really inept….HELLO!!! this was a very calculated deal….who knows! maybe Jennifers SUV was pulled/towed out there, thus the guilty party could get back home with the other vehicle…with the lateness of the call to LE…the two little boys could’ve been asleep at home the whole time…never knowing a thing!

She likely wanted to buy something beforehand. We still don’t know everything that was found at the scene. The neighbors of the land claim that a little over a week ago, they heard a gunshot on the property – so Jennifer may have shot herself. That may be the visual that cops seemingly indicated with their statement, “We have a good idea of what happened” – or she could’ve purchase alcohol to mix with the pills that she bought earlier. Soon enough we’ll know how she took her life, but I’m with Annie: Jennifer is solely responsible for exiting this life. The cops indicated that the forensics appear to be pretty clearcut, but they will verify everything (autopsy, toxicology, gun powder residue, DNA, etc.) The cops and family are not looking for conspiracy theories.
