IN A WORLD EXCLUSIVE, SOCIALITE JASMINE HARTIN, CHARGED WITH KILLING A POLICE SUPERINTENDENT IN BELIZE, TELLS HER STORY IN DETAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME ON TELEVISION, IN “48 HOURS: JASMINE HARTIN’S SHOT IN THE DARK”

In a world exclusive, Jasmine Hartin, a socialite accused of fatally shooting police superintendent Henry Jemmott in Belize, tells her story in detail to correspondent Peter Van Sant for the first time on television, in 48 HOURS: “Jasmine Hartin’s Shot in the Dark,” to be broadcast Saturday, Oct. 2 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) and streamed on Paramount+.

“I am not a murderer,” Hartin tells Van Sant in an exclusive interview. “That’s ridiculous.”

Hartin and Jemmott were on a moonlit pier in the tropical paradise of Belize last May. One shot rang out. Jemmott was dead with a single gunshot wound behind his ear. Hartin, 32, the mother of twins, was found dazed and blood-soaked on the pier, which was not far from the beachfront condo she shared with her partner, Andrew Ashcroft, the son of a British billionaire.

The case has generated international headlines and intrigue. It’s a story of power, privilege and tragedy. Was it really an accident or something more? Hartin has been charged with manslaughter by negligence. No trial date has been set.

Jemmott was a dedicated public servant and a beloved father of five, who spent his life serving his country, says his sister, Cherry Jemmott.

Hartin reportedly first said Henry Jemmott was killed by a shot fired from a passing boat. She later admitted she fired the shot from the pier – saying it was by accident.

She tells Van Sant that she and Jemmott were drinking before they went to the pier. There, she says, he tried to show her how to load and unload his Glock 17 pistol and magazine, because he wanted her to have a gun for personal protection.

“He says … ‘Can you hand me the magazine from the gun,’” Hartin tells Van Sant. “So, I lean over. I pick up the gun. … I’m trying to get the magazine out. Next thing I know, the gun went off.”

“And did you have a finger on the trigger?” Van Sant asks.

“Not that I thought,” Hartin replies.

“Somehow you must have pulled the trigger,” Van Sant says.

“I’d … I’m—I don’t know. I – I – I mean, it was an accident, or the gun misfired. But consciously did I pull the trigger? No,” Hartin says.

Hartin says Jemmott fell on top of her.

“And all I could feel is warmth,” Hartin says. “And I later then realized he was bleeding on me.”

Jemmott’s family believes Hartin murdered him.

“My brother was shot behind the ear … execution style,” says Cherry Jemmott, also a police officer.

“Jasmine Hartin should be charged with murder, not manslaughter,” Cherry Jemmott says.

“People perceive me as being … a billionairess and this …entitled, spoiled rich girl … and this wild, crazy, party girl that’s hanging from the rafters,” Hartin says. “That’s not it at all. I’m a businesswoman. I’m a mother. I’m a friend … I’m a wife.”
