She had recently lost a significant amount of weight (160 pounds) and according to friends her husband, Christopher Jones, told her to gain the weight back. Chris Jones was eventually found guilty of first-degree murder of his wife.
In March 2015, Chris Jones was sentenced to life in prison without parole. Shortly after he was sentenced to an additional two years for abusing his wife’s corpse. The body of Heather Jones was found wrapped in an air mattress and burned. Dateline NBC airs Fridays at 10pm.
