'Fatal Attraction' Killer Jennifer Reali Dies 3 Months After Parole Release
She had battled pancreatic cancer.
Jennifer Reali, famously dubbed the “fatal attraction" killer, has died three months after being released on parole.
Reali, 55, died on March 24 and although authorities did not release any further details, she had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2014.
Reali, of Colorado Springs, earned her name after she murdered Dianne Hood, the wife of her lover Brian Hood, in 1990.
Reali, then 28, put on a ski mask and camouflauge attire before she ambushed Dianne as she left a lupus support group.
She later testified that Brian Hood had persuaded her to commit the murder, saying it was “God’s plan.”
Reali received a life sentence for first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder, but Gov. Bill Ritter commuted her sentence in 2011, making her eligible for parole, according to The Gazette.
Her requests for parole were denied in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Reali was granted parole after a parole hearing in October 2017 and released on Dec. 12.
She reportedly said she believed in redemption and had changed.
