'Killer Relationship With Faith Jenkins': Polygamy And Faith Converge In Joy Risker Murder

Killer Relationship with Faith Jenkins is taking on one of its toughest cases involving polygamy and religion.

The upcoming episode, “Forbidden Love, Brutal Death,” follows the tragedy of a woman who was part of a polygamous marriage. According to the logline, “Two unlikely lovers form a secret bond held together by faith, but the polygamous marriage festers until a manipulative and deceitful charlatan kills the woman he once loved, a beautiful young mother of two sons.”

The woman, Joy Risker, thought she had found love with youth pastor Sean Goff, whom she met in church. According to the Oxygen True Crime page, She disappeared Sept. 2003 after she and her husband had dinner. Goff told friends and family that Risker left him and their kids for an old boyfriend and produced emails to make it look like they had planned the escape. But it was eventually discovered by that the emails were made on the same computer. Her mutilated body was found three months later in the desert of Arizona.
