Is Jonathan Schmitz married? What is Jonathan Schmitz doing now
Most people recall the 1995 murder case upon hearing Jonathan Schmitz’s name. Jonathan came to the limelight after killing his gay secret admirer, Scott Bernard Amedure. The embarrassment on national television made Schmitz do so. After spending several years in jail, Jonathan is now enjoying his liberty.
How is the life of Jonathan after imprisonment? Is he a married man, or is he dating someone currently? Know about his personal life in the following sections.
What Was The Murder For?
As mentioned above, the Scott Amedure murder case is a case that fascinates many people. It is also one of the surprising cases for those who have not heard to date. So, what exactly happened and why the murder was forced to murder the victim?
Jonathan appeared in an on-aired episode ‘Same Sex Crush’ of The Jerry Jones Show in 1995, where he found out that Scott had a romantic interest in him. After knowing his neighbor Amedure had a crush on him, Schmitz laughed and said, ”I am completely heterosexual.” The tape of the show never aired, but clips were shown in the news.
After three days of releasing the tape, on March 9, 1995, Jonathan received an unknown sexually suggestive note on his doorstep and assumed it came from Scott. Jonathan left his house with full anger, took out the money from his bank account, and purchased a shotgun.
Then Schmitz went to Scott Amedure’s house and shot him in the chest twice. The incident happened on the same date (March 9, 1995). Jonathan said he killed Scott because he was “embarrased on national television.”
Legal Action And Parole
After the fatal shot, Jonathan himself called the police and confess that he killed Scott. After committing the crime, Jonathan was sentence to 25 to 50 years in prison. However, Schmitz was released on parole because of his good behavior while in jail in August 2017.
The parole condition is; Jonathan must not change his residence, not engage in any behavior that constitutes a violation, obey all court orders, must not own, possess or use any object as a weapon, among others.
But victim (Scott)’s brother Frank Amedure Jr was annoyed by Jonathan’s parole decision. He said, “I wanted assurance that the parole decision was not based on just good behavior in prison.”

I’ve been stalked 3 times.( With police involvement.)
No one knows what that is like. It affects everything. Your mental peace, your job ( because you’re stalker will show up at your job) there is no safe place. Just driving down the freeway can turn into a crazy adventure with your stalker pursuing you. They break into your home and leave notes and they take things. My heart goes out to Mr. Schmidtz. He was as harassed by his victim, as he was by the Jenny Jones crap show, and by the way that episode was aired. I am not the only one who remembers it.
I hope Mr Schmidtz can move on in his life, because so many of us would not have convicted him.
Jenny Jones producers should have been made to pay the 25m to the dead man’s family. Stupid tragic event.
I agree with Julie: the episode was aired because I remember seeing it as well. I don’t believe it was on the news because they didn’t flip things over that quickly in those days! To prove that: I just found out the show continued for about 11 more years! I don’t remember watching daytime talk shows much then, but I was working then. If I watched anyone it was Oprah for a while because it was on when I got off work and it was during my relaxing time after a rough day at the hospital. So someone got that wrong!
Johnny, I pray that you read this! My name is Todd Bradley. We’ve been good friends for years. Please look me up on Facebook! I’m still waiting to have coffee with you at Ram’s Horn!
All I can say Jenny Jones made the wrong decision. We are not perfect and we make a mistake. I am sure she didn’t know it was going to turn out like that. That young man made that decision on his own. He knew right from wrong. He went and bought that gun and made that decision to go at the Man house. Both of the family are in may prayer.
