Woman hired hitman to murder her parents after leading secret life for decade

A new Netflix documentary looks at Jennifer Pan, who hired a hitman to murder her parents

A new documentary on Netflix will be looking at the case of a young woman who hired a hitman to murder her parents.

In the eyes of her parents, Huei Hann and Bich Ha Pan, Jennifer Pan gave the impression of being a straight A student who'd gotten into a prestigious university and volunteered at a children's hospital after graduating.

However, all was not what it seemed and once the jig was up, Jennifer decided to hire a hitman to kill her parents.

Jennifer is the latest subject of the upcoming Netflix documentary, called What Jennifer Did. You can watch the trailer here:

Her parents fled Vietnam for Canada in 1979, with their daughter being born in 1986.

And according to her peers, Pan initially excelled at school, but things took a turn when she did not receive a valedictorian award.

Her grades started to deteriorate - although they were still enough to get her accepted into Ryerson University.

She also began dating classmate Daniel Wong in the 11th grade - which her parents disapproved of - who had a criminal record and dealt drugs.

Pan had a big setback after failing a calculus test, causing the university to withdraw her offer.

Fearful of her parents finding out about the setback, she forged report cards and later a diploma, telling them that she was studying to be a pharmacist.

From there things only snowballed, as she told her parents she was transferring to the more prestigious University of Toronto.

She even told them that she had been awarded a $3,000 scholarship.

She was finally caught after they shadowed her to 'work' and found that she was not there.

Despite wanting to banish her from the family home, Bich Ha convinced Huei Hann that she should come and live with them but she was given strict restrictions - such as being forbade from spending time with Wong, who was seeing someone else, and couldn't have her phone or computer without supervision.

And here is where things took a dark turn.

Jennifer was given two life sentences.

With Wong's help, Pan organised a plan to murder her parents, with the intention being to make it look like a robbery gone wrong.

Three men, David Mylvaganam, Lenford Crawford, and Eric Carty, entered the home and took her parents down to the basement and shot them, killing Bich Ha and leaving Huei Hann severely wounded.

Pan was the only witness to the events, but when her father awoke from his medically-induced coma, he told police that he saw his daughter talking with the men - leading to her to confess to the plot.

Pan received two life sentences with no possibility of parole after 25 years.

Wong, Mylvaganam, and Crawford were also given the same sentences.

After being initially declared a 'mistrial', Carty was sentenced to 18-years after pleading guilty to conspiring to commit murder in December 2015, with parole eligibility after nine years.

The upcoming documentary aims to revisit that horrific night and features new interviews with detectives and Pan's family to understand what happened.

What Jennifer Did will stream on Netflix from April 10.
