    Wendy, I believe that some of what you said in comment # 94, could be true, about Hataway and his clan of drinking druggies. Thank you for your input.

  2. Puzzler says:


    What direction was her car facing for sure?

    What kind of cell phone does she have? Flip? Model? COLOR!?

    Did LE get the video tape from the convenience store (Circle K I think) at corner of Franklin and HM Bowness Rd?

    Does her car have OnStar? If so, do they have the capability of sending a signal to a key fob and make it alarm if it is lost?

  3. Red Ranger says:

    Hey Puzzler, I think her car was a 2005 coupe. I don’t think Onstar was an available option.

    Cargo Area Convenience Net – $45
    Head Curtain Airbags|Base – $395
    Remote Keyless Entry – $410

    I have a picture of that convenience store that says Citgo out front. I am not positive but I believe it is now a Spur station. It is about 120 yards from JH’s dad’s house. One of the clerks in there says JH used to come in and hit on her at least once a week. She is glad she was never interested.

  4. Puzzler says:

    Well, it looks like OnStar is in this model car after all – maybe standard and not an option?
    “…Two standard GM technologies have made their way into the Cobalt: OnStar (integrated into the mirror) and the driver’s information center…” link:

    Hey Red, did you talk to the clerk in this store? Wow, did you happen to ask about the video tape?

    Anyone know what color/model her cell is or if OnStar can alarm a set of lost keys?

  5. Felicity says:

    Blink, I think Jimmy Hataway is a misogynist…he is not psychotic. He’s THUGGIE BULLY tht hates women (that he can’t control) It would be interesting to know how many women he has hurt physically.

  6. passionflower says:

    I have read in another site, from an ex under She said she knew that Hataway was capable of cruelty and torture. I pleaded with her to come forward and give the Ocoee police a call and tell what she could, in view of the current charges he is facing for assault. I too believe he has women issues, a love/hate thing. Sad.

    I dont know about that, but I would be very careful about what I believed on topix, they could be anyone.

  7. Mariann says:

    Blink- Has anyone searched the dump yet? I heard from an inside source that they believe that is where her body ended up.

    To my knowledge, if your referring to the landfill, it has not.

  8. Mariann says:

    Yes- that is what I’m referring to. That is a fear of LE as I understand it.

    That is common, yes. That said, because it is common, one of the very first things LE is tasked with, is scouring the dump routes, dumpster pick ups within the radius, etc. Although it may be dangerous in this case, I have to believe those very “Investigative 101″ thoughts were followed through immediately.

    From a personal perspective, I do not belive she is in the landfill. If your not familiar with the terrain, or area, you would have a better chance being spotted putting someone in a dumpster than you would disposing of someone in the wooded areas.

  9. Mariann says:

    OK- Just passing on info that was made known to me. You know better than I.
    Not necessarily, I dont want people to think tips arent important-

  10. passionflower says:

    Mariann, you can always post to Blink, and ask her not to reveal your name or message. If you know more, please let Blink know. Tracy’s family thanks you.

  11. Wisdom Calls says:

    Proverbs 8 1-13 “Wisdom calls for a hearing” “Listen as wisdom calls out! Hear as understanding raises her voice! On the hilltop along the road,she takes her stand at the crossroads. By the gates at the entrance to the town, on the road leading in,she cries aloud, ” I call to you, to all of you! I raise my voice to all people.You simple people, use good judgement. You foolish people, show some understanding. Listen to me!For I have important things to tell you. Everything I say is right, for I speak the truth and detest every kind of deception. My advice is wholesome. There is nothing devious or crooked in it. My words are plain to anyone with understanding, clear to those with knowledge.Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothin you desire can compare with it. “I, Wisdom, live together with good judgement. I know where to discover knowledge and discernment. All who fear the Lord will hate evil. Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance, corruption and perverse speech.”
    I have read all of your comments and theories. The only problem is that 99% of your information is wrong. Paul Hutto never went to jail that night. “LoLo” was not there, the disagreement didnt even happen the way people are claiming! Hutto’s HAVE done jail time and been punished for the minor crimes that they did participate in. However they are FAR from the murderers and druggies that you claim they are. As a matter of fact most of them are involved in the church community!! They have families of their own and are doing everything possiable to be productive members of the community. Their childrens pictures or names do not deserve to be posted on any site. I understand that most of you are only going on what information you have been given but may i suggest that before you condemn someone you first find out ALL of the facts from both sides. Please feel free to look up the email recently published by Joe Ocasio clearing the Hutto’s of any involvement. That being said my thoughts and prayers are with the Ocasio family. I hope that closure comes to them soon and that all involved will be brought forth and punished! Proverbs 10-7 ” We have happy memories of the godly, but the name of a wicked person rots away.”

    Respectfully, we DO NOT agree. Furthermore, I have spoken to several direct witnesses in this case and have only reported roughly 50% of what we learned to protect the integrity of this case. Mr. Ocasio, who with Tracy and his entire family are in my thoughts and prayers, can only go on what he is told, and I respect that.

    Let’s get something straight- I don’t think Erica McHenry would think Jeremiah’s crimes were petty.
    Do You?

    A very easy solution would be for Paul and Jeremiah to agree to a polygraph. Passing that would go far, imo.

  12. Wisdom Calls says:

    I make no excuses for any crimes in the past. I was not there when the particular offense in question between Jeremiah and Erica HENRY took place. Were You? As far as a polygraph goes I am under the impression that they were never asked to take one. I also know that there are many haters of the Hutto family that would say just about anything to clear other people involved in this case. I do not want to make this into a heated debate. I guess we will have to respectfully disagree.

    Yes, but you called their crimes minor, indicating they were. I would ask you review the charges, their evolution, and ultimate sentencing. Moreover, as I am sure your already aware, there are MANY relatives in your family with criminal pasts, some of which are still incarcerated. It develops patterns, which are obvious to some, and make no mistake, are being evaluated in this case. I will tell you from a first hand source BOTH Hutto brothers were approached about a poly. They refused. There’s more. Respectfully, there will be a prosecution in this case, and Tracy will be found.

    Lastly, this is NOT the only case they are tied to involving a missing person.

  13. Wisdom Calls says:

    I would like to think and hope that Tracy is still alive. That would be the ideal outcome in this case. I do hope in the end whoever is involved is prosecuted no matter who they are. Curious though… what other missing persons case are you referring to? As for the poly well I was told different. Not sure exactly what to say about that. I can only reply as to what I have been told.

    Fair Question, but I am not going to comment on the other case. I stand by my comments on the polly as coming from an investigator in this case.

  14. Wisdom Calls says:

    I will remain silent as to my thoughts on who is actually guilty of this because it is purely speculation. I only wanted to air another side of the story. However, I do know that they had alibis as to where they were that were checked out. I cant speak for them on the poly because well honestly i’m not them. So i wouldnt know what they have or have not agreed to or denied. Once again only going by what I have been told. As far as any other case goes well I know nothing about that either. I just hope and pray for all of this to come to an end as soon as possiable. The Ocasio family deserves peace and closure.

    On that we can agree.

  15. passionflower says:

    I agree with Blink, about the Hutto’s involvement. Not all of the Ocasio’s believe that Hataway was alone, in the dissapearance of Tracy. The Hutto’s are thugs that need to be put in jail before they make someone else dissapear.

  16. Dee says:

    In regards to the Ocasio case has there been any update to the information about my cousin Tracy? You appear confident of a prosecution happening. Thank you for your loyalty and dedication to our family’s painful and frustrating situation. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family B.

    Please see comments:

    I do not have to.

    I have tremendous respect for Mr. and Mrs. Kesse, I do not share the thought Jenn is alive, sadly.

  20. LuckyLou says:

    I just wish someone would break and come forward. This particular case has always haunted me.

    You and me both.

  21. AliD says:

    Whilst visiting Orlando on vacation from the UK (3 years running) I noticed fliers and posters of Jennifer. She is such a beautiful young woman it is so, so sad.

    My heart goes out to her family.

    Lets all hope she is found soon.

  25. Tawny W says:


    New search going on right now in Orlando for Jennifer. Police got a tip and just saw on the news they are digging and sifting at a vacant lot, Please let this be the day they bring Jennifer home to her family.

    I am aware, thanks for posting. I pray it is, but I will be shocked if they find her there.

  26. Ragdoll says:

    Man threatening the Kesse’s for years with cyberstalking arrested!

    PS….who does this chit to a family missing their daughter?????

  27. mv33 says:

    I came across a link I had saved from a couple years ago and upon recently re-reading the many updates on this case, started thinking about it again…. this article was written shortly after JK went missing and I don’t believe JH was a POI or suspect at the time, so the chances of this, what I would consider crucial witness, being shown his pic in attempts to identify the guy she encountered seems unlikely. Did LE follow up with her periodically as new POIs arose? I’ve always thought that the suspect either knew JK in some capacity or worked at her complex. Either scenario might have given her a false sense of security if he approached her, supporting the theory since there was no sign of a struggle and the dogs tracked from her car back to her condo. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thx
