Paroled After Serving 33 Years For Double Homicide, Man Claims He Made A False Confession
Derek and Nancy Haysom were found murdered in their home in Virginia in March 1985. Authorities claimed all the evidence pointed to the Haysom’s daughter, Elizabeth, and her younger German boyfriend, Jens Soering. Convicted of two counts of first-degree murder, Jens was sentenced to two consecutive life terms. Elizabeth was convicted as an accessory before the fact and sentenced to 90 years.
After 33 years behind bars, Jens was paroled in 2019 and deported to Germany, his native country. Elizabeth maintains that Jens killed her parents, which Jens vehemently denies.
