WAS A YOUNG WOMAN MURDERED BECAUSE SHE RESEMBLED THE KILLER’S EX? THE EX-GIRLFRIEND SPEAKS OUT IN AN ENCORE OF “48 HOURS: THE MURDER OF JACKIE VANDAGRIFF”

A 24-year-old Texas college student was found murdered the morning after meeting a man in a bar. Was she killed because she looked like the killer’s ex-girlfriend? Caitlin Mathis, the ex-girlfriend of killer Charles Bryant speaks out about her relationship with Bryant and her fears for her own safety in an encore of 48 HOURS: “The Murder of Jackie Vandagriff,” to be broadcast Saturday, Aug. 14 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Reported by Jim Axelrod, the broadcast explores the life and death of Jackie Vandagriff, whose body was discovered in a weeded area near a footpath next to Grapevine Lake, in Grapevine, Texas, on Sept. 14, 2016. Police soon uncovered video of the man she was last seen with in some college bars in Denton, Texas. That man was Bryant. Vandagriff had met him by chance after walking into a bar looking for a job. She had no idea that he had a history of stalking Mathis, his ex-girlfriend, who lived on campus across the street. The case raises the question of whether Vandagriff was targeted because she resembled Bryant’s ex-girlfriend. Asked by Axelrod if it was possible Byrant took out his rage for Mathis on Vandagriff, Mathis says: “Most definitely. I think that he really wanted to kill me. I think he wanted me dead.”
