September 4th Press Conference.
Sept 4, 2013
Fourteen days ago I had to deliver the terrible news that Andrea Kruger had been brutally murdered at 168th & Fort St.
Her killer had been on the loose until last Thursday, when he was arrested on a Terroristic Threat Warrant. The Kruger Homicide investigation then slowly came together as pieces of evidence placed Nikko Jenkins at the scene of this very horrific crime scene. We know that Nikko Jenkins was not alone and our investigation will continue to bring others to justice as well.
While all of the evidence is not back from testing we can safely confirm that Nikko Jenkins is our killer and he has been booked for 1st degree Murder, Use of a FA in the commission of a felony and Felon in possession of a FA.
The spirit of cooperation from OPD, the FBI and the US Marshall’s Office was very key in tying all 4 of these homicides together. I cannot say enough about my investigators and crime lab personnel as they diligently pursued every lead and patiently combed over many pieces of evidence not taking anything for granted.
Our community immediately came forward to assist and console the Kruger Family. I hope that this arrest brings some comfort to the family as well.
