I beleive Debra Jenner is innocent. She pleaded for years to have DNA testing. The system refused. What would anyone do in that situation, but plead guilty to get out.
Ever wondered why they wont let her test DNA? Think about it. It would prove her innocent and they could find the real killer. I mean really, stabbed 70 times with a toy airplane, then used a so called knife. I cant reason this out. Supposedly...stabbed with an airplane then decides to get a knife. I mean really. Thats just crazy. And I know Deb. She IS NOT crazy!

What reasonable person can believe that a 3yr old who died (by prosecution testimony) fighting for her life would let her mother stab her repeatedly without making enough noise to awaken her father? And if this was the frenzied attack on Abby that the state claimed, would Abby have lain there peacefully awaiting her mother's return with a second weapon after she broke the first? If she is so guilty where is the proof? Where is the forensic trail of blood that led from the bedroom to the kitchen? Or are we supposed to believe that meticulous cleaning woman that she is she attacked Abby, said, "Hang on a sec, hon. Gotta get another knife." Ran to the kitchen for that knife. Returned to finish the job of MURDERING her daughter, then gave the house a good scrub to get rid of the forensic trail? Oh, yeah, and let's not forget she FORGOT to unlock the door so the intruder she was not even allowed to allege at trial could get in. But she remembered to scrub under her nails and in her class ring without disturbing any built up junk in the ring's crevices. Quite the mastermind for a frenzied attack!

How do I know that you are truely a " Jenner Family Member and not just some quack out there trying to make people believe that a DNA has been completed and proves that Deb is guilty???? I believe that us people that believe in Deb and her innocense need PROOF that this has actually happened.

Has everyone forgotten that a 3 year old innocent child was savagely murdered. Can you even imagine the terror that child felt looking into the eyes of her mother as she was taking her last breathe. I'm a mother who has raised 3 children,and worked and yes, you are tired and stressed out, but taking the life of your child is no excuss. Keep her locked up and away from other children, her grandchildren. She snapped once, she will again.
yea what about starving your child to death thats only worth 20. beating a 2yr old for dumping your drugs whats that worth. lets sit one on the couch while were drunk and let some one sit on it lets see thats about a 7yr. little consistency would be nice.

"Jenner maintained her innocence until 2002, when former Gov. Bill Janklow cut her life sentence to 100 years if she would acknowledge to killing her daughter. The sentence reduction made her eligible for parole." ~USA Today
Innocent or guilty, I don't know, but this sounds like the witch trials of Salem to me! "Admit you are a witch, that you did it, You killed your little girl and we will go easier on you. We will make you eligible for parole if you admit you killed her, but that will guarantee you won't get parole because you admitted to killing her!!!" Now how does that make sense?
WHAT I LOVE IS THAT DARLENE PLUCKER IS NOW THE HEAD OF HR AT LUTHERN SOCIAL SERVICES. REAL NICE.

The childs chest cavity was completely from mom's pshchotic stabbing. Their "church group" scrubbed down the house before they even called police. And since Debra was first imprisoned she's been telling her cellmates she's indeed guilty. the parol board will never release her thankfully.
Not sure where you are getting your misinformation from....we were members of the Jenner's church at the time of her murder and NOONE from the church came in and "scrubbed down the house before they even called police"...it was a Sunday morning...news came to the church service that Abby had been found dead and was taken to the hospital and initially we all were told that they thought she had hemmoraged to death...Our pastor and his wife did go to the house in the afternoon (which the idiot police should have taped off) and washed the bedding and cleaned up the blood so they wouldn't have to come home to see that before they knew that it was a murder. Get your facts straight before you post lies!!! Also, she NEVER told her cellmates that she was guilty..she has been a spiritual leader in every prison that she has been at and everyone who knows her knows that she DID NOT take the life of her beautiful little girl. God has a plan even in the sin of this world!

I too know Deb and completely believe in her innocence....one thing you forgot...somehow Deb did this frenzied attack, in their little what 800 sq ft. house and it did not awake her son or her husband and then after she meticulously cleaned the entire crime scene and herself, she crawled back into bed and went back to sleep and then got up to get ready for church and let Lynn go find Abby dead...makes perfect sense...NOT! oh, and she forgot to clean off the blood smear next to a light switch that didn't even work in Abby's bedroom. The whole thing makes me sick to think she has been in prison for 24 and a half years for something she did not do!

I am pretty sure part of the deal Janklow made with her was that she could not ask for DNA testing as part of the deal...wonder why??? It would prove that it was not Deb but someone else who came into their home.

That is not true...they have not exumed Abby's body and no DNA testing has been allowed....that is a bold face lie and if you are a Jenner Family member say your full name and show the supposed proof...

The state has had nothing to lose by granting DNA other than losing face if she is found to be not guilty as a result of the testing. I find it very odd that she would be refused if they are so sure that she is guilty.
The state of SD has alot to lose if they let her have the DNA testing and it proves that she is indeed innocent...they would have to pay her restitution for the 24 1/2 years they have taken of her life for a crime she didn't commit. They refuse because they know she is innocent.

She did this and she is just trying to get out!! I am related to her unfortunately through marriage, and she is a psycho according to everything that I have heard from my parents!! There was only a year between Abby and I. Who in their right mind even wrong mind stabs their child over and over again with a toy airplane then goes and gets a knife after the airplane broke. Don't you think she would have thought after the toy broke that she was doing something wrong?!? Oh yeah no because she is is psycho!! I have two children and I work 40+ hours a week and I get stressed but for real go for a walk or something why take someone elses life especially you one flesh and blood!! RIP Abby.
You obviously did not physically know Deb at the time...I did...she was not psycho...she played the piano in our church...taught Sunday School...sang praise to God with her beautiful voice. The Lynn and Deb I knew at the time were very much in love with two beautiful young children. The week before Abby died I sat by their family at church...I commented to Deb about how well her kids behaved during the entire service and she beamed and agreed that it was so nice that Abby was old enough now to sit quietly thru church...She was not stressed...Lynn and her had had a wonderful evening out that night with friends...the kids were asleep when they got home...I could go on and on with more details because we were there during that time...
Also, please give me the manufacturer of a toy airplane that is sharp enough to cut thru a human beings chest far enough to kill them...that company should be sued!!! It is so ridiculous!!!!
And lastly, the paramedics who came to the scene should have NEVER removed Abby from the bed...she was already in rigamortis and it is against policy in that situation..they should have waited for the medical examiner and the police should have sealed the crime scene...NONE of the proper protocal was used in this case!
One more thing....by the grace of God the police didn't decide to go after Lynn Jenner for this crime...he could have done it too supposedly...he just had such a cute babyface they knew they couldn't get a jury to convict him so they went after Deb who they questioned for HOURS with no recording devices whatsoever so her "supposed confession" is a he said/she said thing and the state has no REAL proof of her "supposed confession" because once again proper protocal was not used by the police in questioning her.

My best friend went to stay at the Jenner's house throughout the trial. She tended to the family's needs, cooked meals, did household chores, and went to court with the family members, listening very carefully to every aspect of the trial. So much was left out, people, things the public never heard about or read in the papers.

I don't know if Deb will ever know life on the outside again, but I believe in her innocence and certainly think she deserves the DNA testing, but of course it will never happen because of what it would cost the state if she were indeed found "Not Guilty".

That whole trial was a JOKE by today's standards - so much corruption from the TOP officials on down. It's pathetic. If I were a SD resident I'd be EMBARRASSED.
