What happened to Jennifer Fairgate?

On, Saturday, June 3, 1995, a woman was found dead in hotel room 2805 of The Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel in Oslo.

She was found with a gun in her hand and a gunshot wound to the head.

Her hotel room door was also safely locked from the inside with the key cards in the room.

At first, Norwegian police ruled her death as a suicide, but there remained mysterious circumstances surrounding her death.

For example, there was a lack of gunshot residue and the way she was holding gun cast doubt on if she really pulled the trigger herself.

Additionally, she had very little personal belongings in the hotel, including accurate identification, and her bedroom window was found open.

As heard in Unsolved Mysteries, Fairgate had given incorrect contact details to the hotel, a false address.

In a twist of events, the labels from the majority of her clothes had been removed.

There are several theories other than suicide surrounding what happened to Jennifer Fairgate discussed in the episode.

One theory is Jennifer Fairgate was killed by somebody in her hotel room.

According to a receptionist at the hotel, Fairgate checked in with a man named Lois Fairgate and it is possible he could be the killer.

There was also no blood on Jennifer’s hands, where they usually would be in similar cases, suggesting she was shot and the gun was deliberately placed in her hands.

Another theory is Jennifer was killed by a Belgian man in the hotel, who journalists called Mr F.

A third theory is Jennifer Fairgate was a spy was assassinated and a fourth theory is Jennifer is the missing wife of Leoluca Bagarella.

Co-creator Terry Meurer told The Wrap: “Somebody knows her.

“We just believe that someone is going to recognize this woman’s face, even though it’s just a sketch of her.”

He added: “She belongs to someone. I hope that somebody should come forward knowing that her family still wants to know where their daughter is, what happened to their daughter — or a sister, a brother, a friend.”

Meurer added: “You have to wonder if it was a suicide, why she went to all that trouble to get rid of a lot of her clothing and some of the belongings she brought.

“You have to wonder why she would do that, cut the tags out, get rid of any kind of identifying information.

“That doesn’t seem like what a person that was going to kill themselves would do.

“I mean, I guess, towards thinking she was murdered. But who murdered her?

“It feels like there are many more clues to stack up on the side of murder rather than suicide.

“It just feels like somebody’s going to be able to recognize her and reach out.

“We are very hopeful that this case will be solved after all these years.”
