Nikko Jenkins: The Dark Tale of Omaha’s Fourfold Murder

OMAHA, Neb. —

Back on September 3, 2013, during a police grilling, Nikko Jenkins admitted to a horrifying killing spree in Omaha, which ended the lives of four innocent people. According to Jenkins, he committed these cold-blooded murders as offerings to Apophis.

“Do you not realize I’ve got Nikko Jenkins?” the detective bellows in the clip above. “I got Nikko Jenkins. I got you! I’ve got your DNA at the murder scene. I’ve got your DNA in the car. I’ve got the weapon. I’ve got Nikko Jenkins.”

Jenkins was merely 30 when he was found guilty of snuffing out the lives of three men and a young woman — Juan Uribe-Pena, Jorge C. Cajiga-Ruiz, Curtis Bradford, and Andrea Kruger — all within a span of just 10 days. Astonishingly, Jenkins embarked on his rampage of terror barely two weeks after being sprung from the slammer. Of all his victims, only Bradford was familiar to Jenkins, as their paths had crossed in prison. The rest were chosen at random.

Jenkins confessed to the cops that he had shot both Juan Uribe-Pena and Jorge C. Cajiga-Ruiz in the head, also making off with one of their wallets. The investigators deduced that the duo had been hoodwinked into the situation with the promise of some female company.

Jenkins also owned up to Bradford’s murder, adding that he had to finish him off with a shotgun since a revolver wasn’t enough to do the job.

According to Jenkins, he stumbled upon Kruger, who, as per the cops, was likely returning home from work, at a bar in west Omaha.

The detectives reported that Jenkins tracked Kruger as she left McDonald’s, halting her car at the intersection where her lifeless body was later discovered. Jenkins confessed to the investigators that Kruger begged for her life, but he callously shot her thrice in the head and once in the chest.

The court heard on Tuesday that Jenkins had dumped her car on 40th Street, where he “gave it to a crackhead to burn.”

Nearly four years after his bloody rampage during the summer, a trio of judges slapped Nikko Jenkins with four death sentences for his heinous crimes. On top of that, he was handed up to 500 years behind bars for the remaining charges.

“This is one of the worst killing sprees in the history of this state,” Judge Peter Battalion remarked.

Jenkins disclosed to the investigators that he was haunted by Egyptian demons, insisting that the only remedy for the throbbing headaches they induced was to commit murder.

Despite his bizarre behavior in the courtroom, which included rambling in an unknown language and uncontrolled laughter, Jenkins was adamant that he wasn’t insane.

“This is what I want the public to know. I never ever deemed myself to be incompetent or lacking in intellectual capacities. I am a high-functioning, mentally ill patient. There are 4 percent high functioning, severely suffering from psychosis in this country,” Jenkins claimed.
