‘No One Would Tell’: Lifetime Movie True Story Remake Inspired By Jamie Fuller, Amy Carnevale, Shoe Pond Murder

No One Would Tell, the 2018 Lifetime movie, was inspired by the Jamie Fuller-Amy Carnevale, Beverly, Massachusetts, Shoe Pond murder case. The title sounds familiar because it’s a remake of the old Lifetime movie based on a true story by the same name. Lifetime movie fans are already debating whether the remake of No One Would Tell can touch the old one—the one that made us all cry. It’s unclear if the adaptation sticks close to the original storyline. Just like in the first movie, the names have been changed from Jamie Fuller and Amy Carnevale to Sarah Collins and Rob Tennison. Lifetime is calling the new movie an “update of the 1996 made-for-television movie,” which delves into the “physical and emotional abuse in teen relationships.” It stars Shannen Doherty, Mira Sorvino, and Callan Potter.


Logline: A daughter’s dream becomes her mother’s worst nightmare.




No One Would Tell True Story: Amy Carnevale and Jamie Fuller Depicted as Sarah Collins and Rob Tennison 

Two years prior to fourteen-year-old Amy Carnevale’s killing, she dated Beverly High School Sophomore, Jamie Fuller, an athletic and husky hunk, who physically and emotionally abused her. Friends say he bullied his girlfriend by questioning her, snatching her by the arm, and blocking her way so she couldn’t get away from him. Amy Carnevale tried to hide her abusive and violent relationship from her thirty-seven-year-old divorced mother, Cynthia Gill, because she was in love with Jamie. Eventually, people saw the bruises on her body, and her secret was exposed.

For months, sixteen-year-old Jamie Fuller, who at times seemed enraged and crazy, told his friends repeatedly he was going to kill Amy Carnevale for dating other boys.

“I’m getting sick of this. I swear I’m going to kill her. . . . This sh–t’s got to stop. . . . She won’t be around to go out with anyone any more. . . . I’m going to f–king kill her.”

Jamie Fuller made good on his promise on August 23, 1991. According to police, Jamie Fuller learned the day before that Amy Carnevale was going on a trip to Gloucester with several teen boys and girls. His jealousy blazed, and at some point, Jamie enticed Amy to meet him. The teenage couple ended up in a secluded area, where they argued over her alleged infidelity. The next time his friends saw him, Jamie had emerged from the woods with blood on him.

A short while later, Jamie Fuller went back to the woods with friends and wrapped her head and feet in plastic bags. Michael Mailet, a nineteen-year-old teen, helped him dump Amy in Shoe Pond. Cinderblocks were tied around the body to keep it from surfacing. They hoped to conceal the crime forever.


The beautiful blonde cheerleader never returned home. Police pulled Amy Carnevale’s body from the water behind the middle school. Court records pinpoint the location as United Shoe Machinery property off McKay St. An autopsy report stated that she was stabbed to death: she received a puncture wound to the heart and chest, and her was throat sliced.


At trial, a psychiatrist testified bodybuilder Jamie Fuller’s steroid use induced rage and caused him to gain weight fast. His irritability coupled with his mental issues and alcohol consumption is what the psychiatrist and the defense believed drove him to kill. But to Amy Carnevale’s family, Jamie Fuller was just plain evil. He was first sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole. Because of a change in laws, he’s now eligible for parole.
