Carolyn Jansen, 43, was living in Aurora, Colo., trying to make a fresh start after spending years in an unhappy marriage. In 2001, she got a job working at a local diner while she built her direct-sale beauty products business. Then, in the early months of 2002, Carolyn suddenly went missing. More than three years later, on June 28, 2005, in a suburban neighborhood outside Denver, Richard Johnson had been noticing a foul odor coming from the back of his house, which he assumed was caused by some neighborhood cats. He started to clean out his storage shed, and after moving a few boxes around, he came upon a plastic container that had a horrible smell. He opened the container, and inside was a quilt covered with insects, a skeletonized foot and long brown hair. The body inside was later identified as being that of Carolyn Jansen. The medical examiner found a fracture over Jansen's left eye, and her death was ruled a homicide by blunt impact to the head. Richard told the Aurora Police Department that the box belonged to his friend, Jon 'JD' Harrington, who had asked him to store some of his things at his house. JD denied having anything to do with Carolyn's death and told the police while he Carolyn were roommates for a short time, he hadn't seen her in years.
