Picture from the episode

The Jenny Jones Show was an American daytime talk show hosted by comedian, actress, and singer Jenny Jones. The Show came to attention in 1995 when a taping of an episode called Same Sex Crushes resulted in the murder of Scott Amedure.

Same Sex Crushes Episode

Same Sex Crushes was tapped on March 25, 1995, and was about a man named Scott Amedure who had a crush on one of his co-workers, Jonathan Schmitz. Schmitz was unaware that Amedure liked him and thought that it was Aperture's female collogue who had a crush on him. When Schmitz was brought on stage, he appeared unconcerned as he laughed about that revelation in front of the audience.

Murder of Scott Amedure

Three days after the taping of the episode, Amedure was shot and killed by Schmitz who's had a long history of mental illness and alcohol/drug abuse. Schmitz was later convicted of Second Degree murder and has been sentenced to 25-50 years in prison. Following the media coverage of the murder and the trial, the producers decided not to air the show, though part of it aired during Court TV's coverage of the trial as part of the presentation of evidence to the jury. Clips of the episode were also featured in the HBO documentary, Talked to Death.
