And after a $1.1 million settlement in 2007 from Royal Caribbean Cruises, she’s also a wealthy woman.
But in 2005, she was a young newlywed, looking forward to a whole different life.Image Credit: Screenshot
That life was cut short, and the mystery’s never really been solved—something that Smith’s family still can’t let go of…Image Credit: Screenshot
Smith was only 26 when he died during his and Jennifer’s honeymoon cruise.
At the time, Jennifer told police that George must have slipped off the balcony while drunk and smoking a cigar. But a bloodstain found outside George’s room, as well as a host of other evidence, left many questions.Image Credit: Screenshot
Smith’s family, which keeps a Facebook page dedicated to George, remain optimistic that the ‘true’ cause of Smith’s death will be revealed. They remain dubious of Jennifer’s testimony:
“Due in part to Jennifer Hagel Agne’s selective amnesia, we still do not know who murdered George, and justice has eluded us.”
As of January, the FBI closed the official investigation into Smith’s death.
