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.
