The Trail Went Cold – Episode 292 – Jennifer Fairgate

June 3, 1995. Oslo, Norway. The body of a young woman is found inside Room 2805 of the Oslo Plaza hotel and since a pistol is in her hand, she appears to be the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Three days earlier, she had checked into the hotel under the name, “Jennifer Fairgate”, but the name turns out to be fake and since she has no identification in her possession, the woman remains a Jane Doe. All attempts to identify “Jennifer” are unsuccessful, but there are a number of strange details to suggest she may have been a spy or an intelligence agent. In fact, there is even speculation that she was the victim of foul play and her suicide was staged. On this week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold”, we explore the mysterious story of an unidentified decedent known only as “Jennifer Fairgate.”
