Jill Hansen, Pro Surfer And Model, Charged With Attempted Murder
Jill Hansen, a pro surfer and model, has been charged with attempted murder after she ran over a 73-year-old woman in Honolulu.
Hansen, 30, is an aspiring pro surfer who also has her own line of swim/surf clothes called Cali Candy Wetsuits. According to reports, Hansen followed the victim Elizabeth Conklin to her home in her car and proceeded to run her over in Conklin’s building garage. A bystander, Chris Khoy, who works in Conklin’s building, saw that Hansen was about to run over Conklin again and was able to stop the attack by breaking the back window of Hansen’s car with a crowbar. Startled, Hansen reportedly left the scene on foot and said that her father made her do it.
Conklin is currently in the hospital, but is expected to make a full recovery, and Hansen is being held under a $1 million bail.
According to Radar Online, Hansen has a history of erratic behavior. Her father, Jacob Hansen, filed a restraining order against his daughter in January of 2014. The document claims that Hansen had been violating an already existing order of protection since 2012, and that she had created chaos when she falsely reported the killing of her family.
“She blocked off traffic on my street and called HPD to report that my wife, my son and I had all been murdered,” reads the order.
Little else is known about Hansen, and her Facebook page has been deactivated. However, in 2010 Hansen made a speech at an independently organized Tedx Talks event titled “Open Mind, Open Heart.” In her 20-minute speech, Hansen recounts how she found God, telling the audience that they have souls and that God does exist.
