Dernell Stenson News

CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Chandler police detectives searched the home of Cincinnati Reds outfielder Dernell Stenson's former girlfriend.


Jennifer Gaddis cooperated with detectives Friday morning while they searched her Indianapolis house and removed items, according to Chandler police.


Police did not say what items were confiscated.


Police are calling Gaddis an investigative lead in Stenson's death.


According to police reports, Gaddis sent threatening text messages to Stenson's cell phone two weeks before he was kidnapped and killed.


"U better pray I never see you U again, I swear Dernell U R worth a murder charge 4 & that is all U R worth," one message said.


Stenson was kidnapped in a robbery of his sports utility vehicle and killed while trying to escape, police said.


Stenson, who had been playing in the Arizona Fall League, was found dead Nov. 5 after a night out with friends. Four men have been arrested in connection with Stenson's death.


Wow, I didn't know that there was any intent. If there was any doubt about a first degree charge, this piece of evidence solidifies it. If she is proven to be involved, that is.

MESA, Arizona - One of two men charged in the kidnapping and murder of Cincinnati Reds prospect Dernell Stenson has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder charges.

Reginald Riddle, 21, agreed to the plea Thursday to avoid a possible death sentence. Riddle faces 25-years-to-life in prison when he is sentenced.

A co-defendant, David Griffith, 22, is set for trial in September and still faces capital murder charges.

Riddle and Griffith were charged with kidnapping Stenson as he left a Scottsdale nightclub on Nov. 5, 2003, and stealing his SUV. Court records allege they drove to nearby Chandler, where Stenson tried to flee the vehicle in a neighborhood. He was shot several times, became tangled in a seat belt and was dragged more than 1,000 feet.

The 25-year-old Stenson was living in Scottsdale and playing for the Arizona Fall League’s Scottsdale Scorpions at the time of his death.

Man, this was horrible news when it came out. If his formel girlfriend is involved I hope she gets at least a life time sentence.

FWIW-The Dernell Stenson Sportsmanship Award is given each year in the Arizona Fall League. "The award is given to the player who demonstrates the qualities Stenson brings to the ballpark every day -- having a quiet but hard-nosed attitude, doing the job without complaint and playing the game the way it was meant to be played"
