Description

When 20 year old Carrie Love’s purse was found wrapped in a discarded pillowcase on the side of Highway 97 in Oregon, it didn’t take long for authorities to close in on one suspect. Jesse Pratt, her new boss at Northern Star Trucking in Seattle, Washington.The two had set out on a business trip June 16, 1986 but only Jesse would return.


Jesse had a history of violence and previous run ins with the law. Nearly every woman in his life, including his mother, would speak against him at his trial for the murder of Carrie Love. He was a man with connections to people you wouldn’t want to know. And there is no way of knowing what else he managed to get away with. When his time finally came, none of that mattered and he was ultimately convicted of Carrie’s murder in 1988 and again in 1991.


Pratt now sits in Oregon’s Correctional Facility in Salem. He is the oldest convict there.
