Jean KeatingLINN COUNTY, OR – A woman wanted for a DUI related death in 1997 was found in Canada after she bragged about getting away with murder inside a bar.

Police said in 1997, a then 38-year-old Jean Keating was driving drunk when she sideswiped a car driven by 65-year-old Jewel Anderson, causing her cross the center median and collide with another vehicle. Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene. Keating, as is usually the case with drunks, was not hurt.

Keating was charged with manslaughter, DUII, reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person. But while awaiting trial in March 1998, Keating’s attorney informed authorities he was concerned his client had “flown the coop.”. The Linn County Circuit Court issued a bench warrant for Keating’s arrest and she hasn’t been heard from since. Well, until now.

In early 2013 a police officer in Manitoba, Canada had followed up on a tip about a woman telling people in a bar how she had gotten away with the deadly crash in the United States. Canadian investigators were able to identify the woman based upon a past DUI arrest in Canada and her fingerprints matched those in the U.S. database for Keating.

A member of the Canadian Immigration Division detained Keating jn April, and took her into custody pending a deportation hearing. On June 13, local troopers were notified she was in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service in North Dakota, where she was held until her return to Oregon.

After confirmation she was back in U.S. custody, Oregon State Police notified the family of Jewel Anderson. Anderson’s family released a statement saying, in part:

“Jewel was the sweetest woman anyone has ever known; a mother, sister, aunt, mother-in-law, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a stranger to no one and loved holidays, family gatherings like picnics and reunions and traveling. Her home was home to anyone, and she would help anyone that needed down to her last dime, or the shirt off her back.”

Keating, now a rough looking 54-years-old, was booked in the Linn County Jail Thursday. She’s being held behind bars without bail.

  • sounds like maybe it was no accident.

  • It’s bad enough what she did and then ran away from paying her dues. But to BRAG about it, in a bar? Plus having had yet another DUI in Canada? I say throw the book at this heartless, remorseless bitch.

  • G.I.R.L.

    What a moron.

  • Athena

    I hope this woman never again knows freedom. I trust the lack of remorse she’s displayed will help my hopes become reality.

  • MilfOf2

    Hahaha you stupid fucking cuntwat!

  • Jessica Stewart

    And for gods sake somebody wipe the smug little smile off her face!

  • Dre Mosley

    Unreal that she would brag. Fucking sociopath.

  • Ya know how ya get away with crime? DON’T TALK ABOUT IT O_o

  • Stupid idiot!!!!! Have fun in jail cunt

  • I was just thinking that!!!

  • And that my friends, is Karma at her finest…
    Even the drunkest of drunk idiots feels remorseful for knowing they made such a stupid decision that ended the life of another, and are bogged by guilt daily for the remainder of their lives. The fact this woman not only was not remorseful, but found this to be a topic she thought had bragging rights in a bar shows that she is right where the fuck her haggard, raggedy drunk ass should be…and imagine that, she was still hanging out in bars…:O big surprise!

  • She looks real proud of herself. Rot in prison, scumbag.

  • Bragging about killing, allrighty then.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    With all of the charges against her in addition to the ones from sixteen years ago, here’s hoping that she never sees the light of day outside of a prison again. Maybe if she dries up, she’ll have some remorse for what her drunken actions caused…but I doubt it.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    I guess she thinks that it’s funny that it took police 16 years to find her.

  • I hate drunk drivers. Most selfish people on the face of the earth.

  • Evan

    is Jean Keating, Anthony Gideika’s mom?

  • Buffettgirl

    This is what I said days ago when the story first broke here in Portland, and I still mean it now… “Hubris will always out… I’m appalled that anyone could be so black-hearted as to BRAG about having “gotten away with” a deadly DUII crash that also involved her two small children. This thing isn’t even human, she’s a monster. “

  • itsknotme

    “in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service in North Dakota”?!?!?!?!

    I thought we had a tight-rope in Niagara for just this type of situation?

  • Buffettgirl

    Right? It didn’t even slow her ass down that she could have killed her own two kids along with Jewel Anderson. What a nasty piece of work this gash is…

  • Pyncky

    Stupid, drunk, evil, bitch. In the end her own ego did her in, just like the BTK serial killer.

  • newstarshipsmell

    And now she’ll have plenty of bars to hang out at behind.

  • VenusDoom3

    I think that’s what the barrel is for.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    She’s got a thirsty face, that one does…

  • Craig Ellis

    In wine, truth.

  • Texas Ranger

    One Question…are the Buddy Holley glasses a choice? or a requirement? I truly thought that bitch was a dude.

  • JGo555

    Coño, the whore didn’t learn her lesson after killing one before!?

  • JohnQknowitall

    Jails, asylums, morgues or AA… Jail it is…

  • JohnQknowitall

    Most of the time…

  • JohnQknowitall

    Please… We only know she is a selfish murderer. Don’t tarnish the morality of sex workers and the sexually mischievous. 😉

  • LeaveMeBe

    I wonder if she’ll be laughing when it takes the judge about 30 seconds to send her ass to prison. I’m not a betting gal but I’ll bet she won’t be finding anything funny then.

  • Chinchillazilla

    Wearing those hipster glasses may be the worst of all her crimes.

  • kobekaci

    Silly me.. All this time I’ve just been bragging about my kids to impress people. No wonder I don’t have any friends.. I got no funny stories.

  • Buffettgirl

    She could be a morgue resident as far as I’m concerned… save a little oxygen for those of us that are decent people!

  • JohnQknowitall


  • Rachel Ann

    Loose lips sink ships and this bitch has just torpedoed her own. What a cunt. Bet she is surprised to know not everyone is a selfish slag like her. I hope that alcohol was worth it coz where she’s going she’s gonna be sober for a long time.

  • takurospirit

    Maybe she’ll become a skilled toilet wine artisan.

  • 18th40

    Agreed, I hope your hopes become realities too.

  • 18th40

    I hope they send the rest of her too.

  • VietGrlTrippie

    What a fucking worthless piece of cunt.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Gods, I’ve missed you. Have I said that already?

  • 18th40

    You did, now quit disappearing on me dammit.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Sorry! I have a damn job that keeps getting in the way of my irresponsibility and immaturity goals.

  • LeaveMeBe

    And on this note, I have to leave for a bit. It’s my nap time. 🙂

  • 18th40

    That’s just sad.

  • 18th40

    Yeah I wondered what you were doing up during the day. Damned owls.

    ‘I don’t regret what I did’: Husband of American fugitive captured in Canada tells of life, and love, on the lam

    Even though she had evaded capture for 15 years, setting up a new life — and new identity — in rural Manitoba, American fugitive Jean Terese Keating at times wondered when authorities might show up on the farm she shared with her Canadian common-law husband, Leonard McPherson.

    “Are they comin’ or what?” Keating, accused of causing a fatal crash in Oregon in 1997, would say.

    Last week, authorities announced that 54-year-old Keating’s run from the law had ended after RCMP received a tip that a woman had been overheard at a local bar boasting about her flight from justice in the U.S. Keating is back behind bars in Oregon awaiting trial.

    Speaking publicly for the first time, McPherson, 65, who admits he could face criminal charges for aiding Keating, told Postmedia News he has no regrets about cohabiting with a woman on the lam, insisting that Oregon prosecutors were “bullies” and police had their facts wrong. And, besides, he was head-over-heels in love.

    “I don’t regret what I did. I hope Jean doesn’t either,” he said by phone.

    McPherson said he and Keating first locked eyes at a bar in Clackamas County in Oregon, in February 1997. McPherson, an electrician in heavy industry, was in the midst of a three-year work stint in the state.

    “She picked me up in a bar one night,” said McPherson, who summed up Keating’s personality as “domineering.”

    Two months later, on a Sunday afternoon, a terrible collision occurred on a stretch of Interstate 5. A vehicle driven by 65-year-old Jewel Oline Anderson was sideswiped by another car, police said, causing Anderson to lose control and collide with an oncoming car. Anderson, a great-grandmother on her way to church, died at the scene.

    Crash investigators alleged that Keating was the driver who caused the crash, and a grand jury indicted her in Linn County on first-degree manslaughter, drunk-driving and reckless-driving charges.

    But in March 1998, with a trial pending, Keating’s lawyer reported that he had lost contact with her. The court issued a bench warrant for her arrest.

    According to McPherson, his work stint had come to an end the month before and Keating decided to cross the border — her two children, then ages one and three, in tow — to be with him in Manitoba.

    McPherson declined to say how she crossed the border or whether he had any role in the planning but defended her decision to flee the U.S.

    When prosecutors are bullying you, “What do you do? You run,” he said.

    Plus, he said, Keating couldn’t take the chance of being hauled off to prison for 10 years.

    “A mother with two kids needs a chance to raise them,” he said.

    Lisa White, a Canada Border Services Agency spokeswoman, said Tuesday it is still unclear how Keating crossed the border.

    The couple and the two children settled in a rented farm just outside of Minnedosa, Man., where McPherson was born and raised. The town of 2,500, about two hours west of Winnipeg, boasts that it is the province’s “most beautiful.”

    While McPherson continued to work — for a time, he travelled to and from oilfields in Fort McMurray, Alta., and at another point, he worked on the Keystone Pipeline in Manitoba — Keating tended the farm and raised the children.

    “She was a damn good mother and a damn good wife,” he said.

    Several residents of Minnedosa and the nearby village of Clanwilliam were very skittish about talking about Keating this week, but this much they shared: Keating was known by townsfolk as “Jean McPherson.” She was a “friendly” and “happy-go-lucky” gal, who could be seen puttering around town, dropping in at this store or that. On occasion, she’d visit the bar at the Minnedosa Inn, where she’d grab a sandwich and have a chat with other patrons.

    She did have run-ins with the law in Canada, however, including a conviction for impaired driving.

    Hardware store owner Kathy Lane told the Statesman Journal newspaper in Oregon that Keating would come into the store smelling of booze.

    McPherson insists that for 15 years, he and Keating didn’t tell a soul about Keating’s past run in with the law in Oregon. McPherson didn’t even tell his brother who lived 50 kilometres away. Keating didn’t dare write letters to her two sisters back in the U.S., for fear of getting caught. The children knew they were from Oregon but not much more.

    But authorities said it was loose lips that led to Keating’s capture.

    RCMP in Manitoba said they received a tip that a woman at a bar had talked about getting away with a fatal crash in the U.S. several years earlier. The tip was passed along to an investigator with the RCMP’s Red River Integrated Border Enforcement Team. Authorities confirmed that the woman who everyone in town knew as “Jean McPherson” was not a Canadian citizen.

    Her fingerprints were compared with those of Jean Keating in Oregon and confirmed to be a match.

    In early April, CBSA inland enforcement officers swooped in on the family farm and arrested Keating. She was kept in detention until June, when she was deported back to the U.S.

    When Oregon police officials announced last week that Keating was back in custody, Anderson’s family issued a statement, saying they were “thankful that, finally, after 16 years of her running, hiding and torment, our families will have some closure.”

    Anderson’s daughter, Linda, had from time to time searched for clues to Keating’s whereabouts using and other websites, according to the Oregonian newspaper.

    At Keating’s court appearance Friday, where a judge set her bail amount at $5 million, Lisa Anderson described Keating as having a “smirky grin” on her face, the newspaper reported.

    Back in Manitoba, residents said even though they had grown accustomed to American draft dodgers escaping to Canada over the years, news of Keating’s arrest was still shocking.

    “A lot of people were surprised she was wanted on all these charges in the States,” said Brion Pollon, a municipal councillor in the area.

    McPherson, who is barred from communicating with Keating, said he feels sorry for the Anderson family‘s loss.

    “I’m sorry this lady passed away. When you lose a mother, it is very hard. When you lose a mother in an accident, it’s harder,” he said.

    But McPherson maintains Keating is innocent of the charges. He also finds far-fetched the allegation that Keating’s mutterings at a bar somehow led to her capture.

    “It’s a nice story to make the RCMP look good,” he said.

    He believes Keating’s daughter’s application earlier this year for a new U.S. government ID card is what likely tipped off authorities to Keating’s location.

    Whatever it was, Keating’s children are “unlikely” to be able to fully understand their mother’s decision to flee to Canada 15 years ago, McPherson acknowledged.

    Asked if he ever had any thoughts about turning Keating over to the authorities, McPherson didn’t hesitate with his reply.

    IKR? I tried to talk my husband into letting me be a stay at home mom but he said since the kids were grown he didn’t really see a need for that. Sometimes he can be so unreasonable.
