Mini Bio (1)

Jens Söring, born in Bangkok, Thailand, is the son of a German diplomat Klaus Söring. Jens Söring moved to the US in 1977 and graduated from The Lovett School, Atlanta, Georgia, in 1984. He then matriculated at the University of Virginia and entered into a relationship with fellow student Elizabeth Haysom. In March 1985, Haysom's parents, Derek (born 1913) and Nancy Haysom (born 1931), were murdered at their home in Bedford County, Virginia. Six months after the murders Jens Söring and Elizabeth Haysom fled to Europe and Asia. They were arrested on cheque fraud charges in London, England, on April 30, 1986. Under questioning by British, American, West German and Virginia authorities, both confessed to the murders. At the trial Haysom pleaded guilty and then testified that Söring committed the murders and that she was an accessory to the crime. The jury found Jens Söring guilty and he was sentenced to two consecutive life terms. Elizabeth Haysom was sentenced to 90 years imprisonment.

Trivia (1)

On the afternoon of Friday, March 29, 1985, Elizabeth Haysom and Jens Söring rented a gray Chevette and drove to Washington, D.C., where he used his father's Visa card to book a room at the Georgetown Marriott. After checking in, they went to see the movie "Porky's Revenge!" They spent Saturday midday wandering around the neighborhood, then went for a late lunch at a restaurant with a train theme. Soering made a joke about the phallic iconography of the image, in the Freudian paradigm. On Sunday, they drove back to Charlottesville. Haysom was notified of her parents' murders on Wednesday, when the bodies were discovered. What later interested investigators was the odometer on the Chevette. According to rental records, the car had been driven six hundred and sixty-nine miles between its rental and its return-some four hundred miles more than a trip to and from Washington, D.C. This was the distance from Charlottesville to Washington, Washington to Loose Chippings, and back along the same route.
