Jennifer Kesse Missing: New Evidence And New Leads Connect To Old Names In Casey Anthony Saga


Orlando, FL- Jennifer Kesse, the newly promoted mortgage process engineering manager for Central Florida Investments, parent company of Westgate Resorts was an upstart.

Recent BOC article coverage can be found here, here and here.

After interviewing with upper management for other advancement roles within the company- her new position was actually created For Her.

Was this a forward and prophetic corporate strategy based on mortgage industry trending data?

Was her promotion a result of Jennifer’s own market analysis and efficiencies recommendations to the suits on the top floor?

Yes and Yes.

At 24 Jennifer Kesse was the youngest new manager among her peers in their respective management roles at CFI.

While she did not have the subordinates they did reporting to her directly, the initiative she was leading and launching was going to save the firm almost $900,000 annually.  The installation and rollout of a new debit system interface allowing timeshare owners to pay fees, mortgages and incidentals by ACH automatically was a corporate priority for Westgate Resorts.

Which is why on the morning of Tuesday January 24, 2006, the day after she returned from a brief trip with her boyfriend Robert Allen- when Jenn did not show up to her office in Ocoee, there appeared to be immediate concern.

According to Jennifer’s outlook scheduling calendar she did not have an interoffice meeting until the afternoon.

By 11:15 her parents living two hours away in Bradenton were called to see if she had some sort of family emergency.

The exact escalation of events within CFI leading up to the phone call and who made it are being withheld for investigative reasons.

By noon, a trifecta of calamitous and simultaneous events takes place.

Drew, Joyce and Logan Kesse, speeding from Bradenton to Orlando in a respite from paralytic panic reach the property manager of Jenn’s new condo at Mosaic On Millenia and learn her car is not parked in her spot.  She is not inside.

A self-confessed admirer and now CFI lateral management peer, Johnny Campos arrives 4 hours late to the Ocoee office.

The only suspect ever declared to date in Jennifer Kesse’s disappearance is parking her vehicle while captured on 3 separate closed circuit cameras at the Huntingdon Tavern On The Green Condominiums and apartments.  It is less than a few blocks from two large CFI warehouses and within a mile of  several CFI owned properties.

By late afternoon The Kesse’s, Rob Allen and Jennifer’s closest friends were using her condo as a command center to develop immediate and organized searches for her.

Detectives Julius Glenn Gause II and Joel Wright of the Orlando Police Department respond to the scene.

Detective Gause assures the Kesse’s that Jennifer had a fight with her boyfriend Rob Allen, who is now standing in her living room vehemently disagreeing with his investigative assessment.  Who can blame the guy?

Gause’s opinion was reached without ever interviewing a single person who was  not on-scene, and was sure she would be back by tomorrow.

In a mandatory meeting called at the request of Central Florida Investments CEO David Siegel and conducted by Chief Financial Officer Tom Dugan, it was announced that Jennifer Kesse, a respected and valued member of the management team had been reported missing.

Dugan adamantly assured all that the company would encourage  employees to join any organized search efforts to find her.

Jennifer did not return as Gause predicted.

Her car did however, and on January 26th   her case  was declared a criminal investigation.

The First 48… Months

Upon the classification of Jennifer’s case as a criminal investigation,  J. Glenn Gause told the Kesse’s that his partner  Detective Joel Wright asked what he considered a dumb question during a briefing.

As a result, Gause informed- he kicked him off the case and requested new partner Det. Emmett Browning.

While such a move would  obviously be outside of Det. Gause’s authority, it is more likely the pair were reeling from the Internal Affairs investigation that ensued after they knowingly interviewed John Evander Couey after his arrest for the murder of Jessica Lunsford.

Shortly after Couey’s confession to Citrus county detectives was thrown out of court because it violated Couey’s Miranda rights,  Gause and Wright decided to inform their Orlando PD sergeant that they interviewed Couey following his arrest in Citrus County on the chance he might be a suspect in the Regina Armstrong murder because he grew up in Orange County.   They claimed he actually confessed to the Lunsford murder.

The confession was not recorded and at no time did either detective inform the Citrus investigators or their OPD supervisor of the visit itself- let alone  Couey’s statements made to them.

That is, until they learned his original confession in the Lunsford case was inadmissible.

Interviewing an incarcerated man who is represented by an attorney with charges pending in a potentially related case without permission, notes, or a recording by veteran detectives is outrageous.

John Cuoey was 5’4”, 125 lbs with a flag tattoo.  The suspect composite from direct witnesses in the Armstrong case was a man around 40, 6 ft tall with medium build and a mermaid tattoo on the opposite arm.

They were lucky their actions did not derail the prosecution of both cases.  The second alleged confession was also thrown out and reprimands to both detectives remain private in their respective employee records.  Regina Armstrong’s murder in 1985 remains unsolved.

John Evander Couey died of natural causes on death row awaiting execution for the rape and murder of Jessica Lunsford.

Patented Police Work- Who Knew?

Detective Emmett Browning, Jr and J. Glenn Gause II will lead the investigation into Jennifer Kesse’s disappearance by keeping the single most promising clue from the very folks that could help the case instantly.  The public.

Browning and Gause made the investigative decision not to release video footage of the man parking a victim’s vehicle within 24 hours of her missing persons report.

They were 48 hours into the case they now assumed was a lovers rift.  The case had since turned into a criminal investigation and thought it wise not to engage the public’s efforts in locating an individual seen on video in a very distinctive uniform less than one day earlier, a mile from her home.

I am aware that is a run-on sentence.      How could one possibly break that up and convey how ludicrous that was?

There were no obvious signs of foul play in Jennifer’s condo or her car.   An entire complex watched as the car was removed.    How could they possibly have ruled out that Jennifer was abducted and held against her will?

Might a tip on the immediate suspect have saved her life?

They had time to make the 6 o’clock news and blast the web.

Fresh eye witnesses, fresh leads – what a break!

Fresh fizzle was the way this was going with these two.

Investigators informed the Kesse’s they would not be processing Jennifer’s condo because there were too many people in it and it had not been preserved.  Drew Kesse told Detective Gause that he was in contact with some family friends employed in international security and law enforcement in different jurisdictions and he was told the scene should be processed and known prints and samples could be eliminated from any unidentified.

Gause responded by telling the bereft  father of a missing daughter if he got one more call or one more question about his investigation he was going to start arresting people.

Gause and Emmett, otherwise known as “Gammett” by colleagues  for their years of friendship and  joining the Orlando Police Department patrol together in 1981 worked the case through August 2007 without ever interviewing a single person at Jenn’s work, developing a suspect or releasing the footage of the suspect parking the car.

The duo felt they had a better offer they could not pass up.  Hard to Imagine, I know.

“The right opportunity came up and you don’t know if you’re gonna get another opportunity like that,” Gause said.

Upon their departure, it was discovered by Orlando Police that neither officer kept a note, recording, binder, or interview outline on the Kesse case and if they had,  they emptied it from all files of their cases within  OPD.

Gause wished the Kesse’s luck and his hopes in finding Jennifer.

“If They don’t find her this hunting season, they definitely will by the next.” – Glenn Gause

With homicide cases in the collective rearview for the pair, they set forth with new employer Aqmi Strategy Corp.

Putting their combined 50 years of investigative prowess to work in white collar crime via the private sector was the plan.

They probably should have started with the new boss.

Aqmi Strategy Corp- a division of Mirabilis Ventures was about to expose one of Orlando’s more notorious billionaire frauds by way of an international security incident.  A retired Orlando Police captain and a former secret service agent were detained in the Democratic Republic of the Congo while allegedly conducting security detail for  presidential hopeful Dr. Oscar Kashala.   Kashala is a Harvard educated Congolese national.

Frank Amodeo, a felonious, disbarred Georgia bankruptcy attorney and equal opportunity bilker of the DINK and COCOON sets formed Aqmi under the Mirabilis umbrella in 2004.

After fake-buying the Trump Tampa Tower and raising the US Treasury’s eyebrows following rumors that the real reason for being in the DRC was to raise foreign capital for US interests surfaced, the IRS and Mr. Amodeo became acquainted. Although those particular rumors were likely started by the opposing parties who detained the the team in the first place,  an American security detail contracted by a major pharmaceutical executive running for office in the Congo is going to get a look.

Amodoe is currently on the hook to the IRS for $181 million in unpaid payroll taxes and serving 22 + years for  conspiring to commit wire fraud, obstructing an agency proceeding, impeding the IRS and failing to remit payroll taxes.

Dr.  Kashala failed in a second bid for the African nation’s presidency in 2011.

In 2009 following an informal inquiry by officials within The Orlando Police Department, new investigators received an 80 page report on the Kesse case compiled by the original investigators Glause and Browning.

How it got there and upon whose request has not been disclosed.

“Better late than never” might be one of those  axioms  I stop using.

Gammett  currently works with several colleagues from the defunct and bankrupt Aqmi days as independent security consultant for Center For Security Solutions.

Detectives Browning and Gause’s legendary dogged determination to solve cases has made them experts in Cold Case Management.  Their “patented” concept of methodical Cold Case organization and review has a proven success rate. Their irrefutable investigative skills has made them equally effective in handling Internal Affairs cases, completing thorough, fair, factual and concise investigations.

Largely devoid of any of the aforementioned but chockfull of spurious, you can read Gammetts full bios here.


Detective Sergeant Rich Ring buoyed Jennifer’s case until Joel Wright and new partner Detective Roger Brennan picked it back up.

First order of business sixteen months later- release the vehicle video and declare a suspect.

I will spare the details of how much difficulty these detectives went through reconstructing a two year old investigation without the proper background from the first team at bat.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity to Blink on Crime, a source inside the OPD confirms the files removed from the Kesse case included reports like her cell phone records and ping studies.

To their profound credit the parents of Jennifer Kesse,  Drew and Joyce pushed a bill through the Florida Senate to mandate standard operating procedures and other practices that would preclude anyone walking off with the case files in adult missing person’s cases in Florida.

The Jennifer Kesse Tiffany Sessions Missing Persons Act was signed ceremoniously into law on October 28, 2008 by Governor Charlie Crist.

Bill 502 expanded the authority of The Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Missing and Endangered Information Clearinghouse (MEPIC)  to provide assistance in missing persons investigations for those under 26 and over the age of 26 that are believed to be endangered.

In it’s first three years in existence, the Act has helped 716 adult missing persons cases including Jennifers.

The disappearance of Jennifer Joyce Kesse brought some of the largest volunteer search efforts for a single person in both Florida and the United States to date.  David Siegel, the president and CEO of Westgate Resorts and Central Florida Investments offered a $100,000 reward for Jenn’s return through March 8, 2006.

In July of 2008 the disappearance of 34 month old Caylee Anthony catapulted the Orlando landscape back onto to the screens of the nightly 14 minute intro recaps of her case.

With no similarities in the victims or any known associations to the cases outside of the fact they were last seen within a few miles of each other there was no way they were related.

Except One.  Peter Benevides.

Big profile, big reward, big name-  Peter “Pedro” Benevides pledged a $100,000 reward for the return of a living Caylee Marie Anthony.

Background is Foreground With A Skyview

In December 2008 Florida’s statewide prosecutor Bill Shepherd reviews Jennifer’s case.  Prosecutor Shepherd’s office is only tasked with reviewing cases that may require multi-circuit jurisdictions and the possibility or probability of PONZI SCHEMES.

Prior to joining Holland & Knight, Shepherd served seven years in the Office of the Attorney General of Florida. He was appointed in 2007 by former Attorney General Bill McCollum as Florida’s Statewide Prosecutor and was responsible for leading eight offices throughout Florida in the investigation and prosecution of multi-circuit criminal activity. Shepherd’s focus was on RICO prosecutions in the area of white-collar crime, mortgage fraud, securities fraud, healthcare fraud, ponzi schemes, corporate and private embezzlement, money laundering, narcotics trafficking and gang-related crimes. He also worked in the Office of the State Attorney in Miami as an Assistant State attorney from 1996-2000.

The results of the Statewide Attorney recommendations are unknown.

After a review of Jennifer’s case by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at the request of Drew Kesse in 2010, her case was again in the hands of OPD.   Detective Patrick Schneider and Sgt Det Richard Lane were the lead investigators at the time of this publication,    Following Schneider’s retirement, the case is now led by Sgt. Theresa Sprague.

According to a statement given to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office by the now infamous Roy Kronk, he was under the impression that the reward posted by Benevides for locating Caylee was set to expire.   Not his original statement to Detectives John Allen and Yuri Melich of course, but he gets there.

On December 11, 2008 the remains of Caylee Marie Anthony were recovered off of Suburban Drive in Orlando. Kronk never realized that it was only payable if Caylee were found alive.

Two weeks later a discovery of a different kind befalls a local couple walking their dogs in a Windermere neighborhood.

What is believed to be the pepper spray pouch and attached mail key of Jennifer Kesse was recovered.

The names of the advertent couple and precise location are being withheld by for investigative reasons.

The couple tried for weeks to contact the established crimeline  tip line as well as Orlando Police before turning  the item over to Windermere Police with a note.  The note said the finders thought it may be part of the Kesse investigation but they had been unsuccessful reaching detectives.  After a last try in late January, detectives returned her call.

It was not until BOC analysts came across a work order request from Jennifer’s condo maintenance staff requesting a replacement key and new mailbox assignment prior to her disappearance the connection was made to Jennifer’s case.

The key in her vehicle, the key attached to the fob of the spray holder pouch and the existing key to the mailbox number assigned to Jenn are identical.  The pouch is an exact duplicate of several purchased by Jennifer’s parents for her as well as extras for her girlfriends, when she moved on her own.

Drew Kesse has an exact duplicate purchased in tandem on his keychain today.

In January 2009 Pete Benevides registered a Limited Liability Company under the name Skyview Funeral Home , LLC with a PO Box in Clermont, FL.   He does not own a funeral home, is not licensed to conduct funeral services and the entity was dissolved a year later for not receiving an annual report.

Considering the fact that Benevides was outed as the benefactor for Caylee Anthony’s memorial service by Dominic Casey, Anthony family private investigator and head of security for the event, one has to wonder if Skyview Funeral Home’s business model is focused more on laundry services.

Not for long though. At precisely the moment the Memorial Service is taking place at First Baptist Orlando,  the United States Treasury descends on the Orlando business interests and assets of Mr. Benevides and his co-horts in “Project Rumpelstiltskin”.

On February 10, 2009, orchestrated presumably upon received intelligence, “There’s gold in them thar hills” is not just the dream bubble of Parker Schnable of Porcupine Creek.

Through an ongoing criminal investigation sparked by “unspecified illegal acts “ as sworn by Noel Martinez, Jr, Special Agent IRS- USSS Financial Crimes Task Force , it seems the cast of Gold Rush missed the glory hole by a few thousand miles.   Federal agents however,  hit the Orlando bedrock without the need for excavation.

Javier Fernandez,  Angel Sanchez, Luizia Trindade, Luiz Trindade,  Skyview Aviation, Pedro Benevides, Luis Hernandez, German Cardona, Daniel Rojo Filho,  Evolution Market Group, Superior International Investments Corp, Brittany Sprague Benevides, Michael Clark, Heather Perkins, DWB Developers, their officers and registrants therein watched their 9 vehicles ranging from a $270K motor coach, Audi A8 and custom Lamborghini drive away without them under an REM forfeiture complaint.

Unbeknownst to them at the time, the nearly 400 gold bars  stashed in 3 different states were also seized between February 9th and 11th in addition to  bank accounts totaling over a few hundred million dollars, wired from multiple international locations.

Additional seizures of an undisclosed amount of gold and silver were seized from 3 safes in a warehouse owned by Ralph Munyan of Clearwater.

Several notices of civil actions referencing sealed criminal cases and John Doe participants as co-conspirators are pending against all.  It is likely they will be put on hold until the completion of all criminal investigations and subsequent complaints.   The sealed cases to date are in Oregon, Texas, Arizona, Florida, Colorado and Nevada.

Further coincidences between the Benevides et al clan and involvement with the Casey Anthony case include the fact that pass through accounts referenced in the seizure filing and the first Caylee Marie Anthony Trust were closed at the same bank within one business day of each other.

The first four days of transactions including opening deposits of the first Anthony Trust have never been revealed publicly.  One thing is for certain.   If Mr. Benevides or anyone attached to the criminal matter used those derived funds for any purpose related to Ms. Anthony or Mr. Baez, we are all going to know about it at some point, the individual payments and transactions of these accounts have only been partially released in support of the warrant.

The seizure action brought by the United States Attorney has been ordered “stayed” with 90 day updates in order to allow the pending criminal investigations to proceed against all the above defendants, both named and as yet to be named.

On September 16, 2009 Pedro Paul Benevides was arrested on Federal charges of cocaine smuggling after two of his pilots were arrested in Pensacola and fingered him as the mastermind.

Benevides was remanded to the Orange County Jail through February 2010 where he was released after charges were dismissed against him when a witness against him changed their story.  It is not known if Casey Anthony, who was also housed at the Orange County Jail and Benevides were leaving notes at the library for one another ending in ~FLUSH~.

On February 11, 2010 Pete Benevides was released from custody, still under investigation by the Feds for his and his associate’s involvement in an alleged ponzi scheme that has bilked over $450 million dollars from investors around the world.  However, with a heavy concentration of folks seeking damages for same around every corner of the neighborhood, it can’t be the same hitting the in and out burger in Orlando these days.

On February 19, 2010 based on an informant tip,  OPD conducted a search behind the Knights Inn on South Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando.   Both that site and the location on 72000 International Drive  are known former business addresses of Filho, Hernandez and Benevides.

Until last month Pete and Brittany Benevides, Luis Hernandez, Daniel Filho, unspecified John Doe’s and Angel Hernandes managed to dodge subpoenas in the pending civil actions.  Luis Hernandez and the Benevideses maintain homes and offices in Leesburg,  Astatula, Clermont, Orlando and Windermere.  The pending class action civil suit process servers were headed off by security at every gate.

The State of Florida was happy to be served on their behalf at the request of the plaintiffs attorney.

*  It is this author’s intention to present the parties associations, conduct and occurrences to the relevant time periods and commonalities to the case of the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse and by no means should be considered a complete background or biography.  Y’all are itching to know how any of this is connected as it is or you’re asking yourself-  did Blink drink her Google juice today?  I get it.  Stick with me, read on.

Encumberance And Conveyance, In Deed

The first investigative interviews conducted at Central Florida Investments, Jennifer’s employer were in May 2009, or so the management team thought.  She had been missing three years and 4 months.

What they did not know is a work colleague of Jennifer’s called them on his own to tell OPD what he knew in the months before that.   “Adam Frank” referred to previously on BOC, not his real name as he is a material witness in the case, called police in an effort to stop the harassment he was enduring at work since Jennifer disappeared.  Adam overheard a confrontation between Johnny Alberto Campos and Jennifer Kesse the morning of January 23rd, 2006.

For the first time exclusively on, we have uncovered additional witnesses to corroborate the interactions between Jennifer Kesse and Johnny Campos leading up to and including the days following her disappearance.

On or about the day after Jennifer’s disappearance, Johnny Campos asks Frank to drive him to an impromptu meeting at the new Lake Eleanor Office.   When the pair arrived, Campos told Frank he would meet up with him in about 30 minutes in the cafeteria.

Adam Frank watched as the manager of the branch,  Linday Hernandez met Campos at security and the pair headed to her office.

Linday Hernandez, A Venezuelan national, is a business partner of Peter Benevides in more than one venture, and her husband Luis Hernandez is and was a former principal in several business interests including currently held properties.

Mr. Hernandez as previously noted is under Federal criminal investigation in multiple states and a defendant in several civil actions resulting from those alleged activities.  Linday Hernandez is not named individually in the ongoing federal or class action civil matters to date, however, companies which she has or had a principal interest in, are.

A recent financial filing of the couple requesting significant debt relief and a stay from a foreclosure sale on their Windermere residence was filed in Ms. Hernandez’s name only.  Luis Hernandez’s whereabouts are unknown.

Witnesses inside the investigations of both Jennifer’s case and the Federal inquiry describe the relationship between Linday and Campos as “confident” and friendly with Linday visiting the Ocoee branch frequently ending in an offsite lunch for the two.

An additional witness interviewed by BOC and wishing to remain anonymous provided an account describing how Campos approached him with a scheme for making quick cash.  Several timeshare owners were asking to renounce their weeks without compensation as long as they did not pay annual fees.   It was alleged Campos saw it as an opportunity to rent the week out, covering the fees, without ever telling the owners.  Westgate/CFI had folks with access keeping track of unoccupied timeshare properties.  Who accessed them and by what means remains to be seen.

A simple keycard report would be able to tell that information for the timeframe of Jennifer’s disappearance easily.  It has not been requested to date.

The Ponzi Peninsula

In May 2011 a tip was received from a Columbian national and former resident of the United States claiming to have had to leave the country due to immigration issues.

Dimitri Duran Soto is also a former realtor and mortgage broker for Sky Land Realty Group and DPG Realty after a failed cleaning business venture in 2003. His real estate license in Florida has been revoked.   Mr. Duran Soto is a trained architect and is currently working as such in Columbia.

It was the intent of BOC to withhold Mr. Soto’s name but he has since posted a request for the person who he believes may either be responsible or knows who is,  for what happened to Jennifer Kesse as he claims was told to him.

Soto told police while he was discussing seeing the Kesse’s on TV, a friend of his claimed to have seen Jennifer in a white pickup truck sitting between two men with a look he described as “like, help me” when the vehicles were next to each other at a traffic light turning left onto International Drive South.

That evening Soto printed out a flyer from the Kesse website and showed it to him the next day to confirm.

At the time he says he felt his friend did not come forward and neither did he because they both had what he termed immigration issues.  He was afraid of deportation.

Upon return to his native country, Soto learned his friend had taken care of his status but had not yet informed police of what he knew.   Soto reached out, and was put in touch with OPD.

The January 6th search conducted and organized by Orlando Police and FDLE in the area of the 13000 block of International Drive was based on the account of Soto’s friend, however, a posting of Mr. Soto’s indicates there may be more to it.


Soto’s friend describes the pickup he was now watching in his rearview mirror makes a right turn just before the Partners Credit Union onto a dirt road leading into the woods and property searched recently- unsuccessfully.

However, the dirt road access which is commonly known to many ATV riders in the area is also a way to access the undeveloped plat #723 owned by Luis Hernandez and Pedro Benevides.

The BenHen parcel has not been searched nor seized because of it’s purchase prior to any allegations of ponzi.

Considering the fact that the last known person to have had a public disagreement with a missing woman arranges an impromptu meeting with a woman whose husband, and by way of a marital asset so does she, owns a parcel in the direct vicinity of a recent search area OPD felt credible is worth a conversation- no?

    Why does Campos arriving four hours late the morning the woman goes missing not seem to get any traction? Columbians, Venezuelans and Campos – just put them in a room and remove a few digits and you’ll have all the facts very quickly. It’s the only thing they understand. Treating animals like civilized people will get you nowhere

    george- welcome to BOC. I would offer there is a great deal more than Campos arriving late to work the morning Jennifer goes missing that is “without traction” in this investigation. I presume you are referring to the Benevides connection I uncovered in the rest of your comment. I just want to say that I do not believe Jenn was involved in anything untoward- but I do believe the individual (s) involved in her disappearance and murder were.

    I regret to say that a part of me agrees with your last sentence in a general sense- nonspecific to any cultures however, just to the persons of interest in this case. I want her found.

  5. Paul says:

    Hi, I just found out about this case watching TV tonight, and then read your article while researching. Your article certainly has enough detail (!!!) and had so much info packed into it, I had to read each paragraph 2 or 3 times to get a glimmer of what it was saying. The early mention of Campos being “an admirer” and then being 4 hours late to work the day she disappeared sure gave me the idea he had ample time to dig a grave and bury her. Hopefully, he or whoever did this (if I’m wrong about him) will be brought to justice soon.
    However, the main reason I’m writing is to let you know that the country in South America you referred to is spelled Colombia, not Columbia. Best wishes and keep up the good work!!

    Thank you Paul, no doubt a spell check oversight, I appreciate the correction

  7. Pilar G says:

    So how did that couple know to call the police about them finding the pepper spray pouch and mailbox key? I find it very strange that they find a key on the ground somewhere and automatically think it’s linked to the Jennifer Kesse case and then it just so happens that it is. That’s bizarre to me.

    The coverage of Jennifer’s search included remarks about her carrying pepper spray and I can tell you where this was located would arouse suspicion combined with that very public information at the time.

  8. Justice is Mine says:

    What’s up? Ok to post here, just mark it private.

  9. Vivian says:


    What are your thoughts about the possibility that Jennifer threw her mace/fob/mailbox key out of her car either as the driver of her car or as a passenger and someone driving as a clue to her father since he bought the mace for her, her friends and himself?

    Could this be a clue that she left that she was in Windmere?

    Do you happen to know if the couple who found these items were investigated by OPD?

    Thanks for your valuable and interesting information…

    Take care…


    I don’t think anyone can speculate on whether or not the pepper spray was definitely Jennifers- although I will say there is compelling evidence it may have been. Specifically, in my interviews with Jenn’s Dad we were able to determine some images which contained the “device” had actually been taken prior to Jenn’s disappearance so it was not until then anyone realized it was missing- this was in 2011-2012. We discovered this when I pointed out the dates in the EXIF data my programs are designed to analyze. There is obvious signs of outdoor exposure to the spray/spray holder.

    I interviewed the couple that found it- they are both professionals and LE and I believe they were just kindly citizens doing the right thing.

  10. Marnie says:

    I have just seen the story on Jennifer on disappeared and 48 hrs. The guy who had a liking for Jennifer at work was late because he was stopped by the police etc and they say that is his alibi. Well where was he before he was stopped by the police. Could it be possible that he kidnapped her before that. Also my gut dont trust the brother’s friend who owns the cell phone. Perhaps he showed up and somvidething went wrong etc. The person on video, where did he go into the apartments or away from the apartments. I also was thinking if there was video of the car in the city from stop lights etc.

    Marnie- thanks for posting on Jenn’s case. You prompted me to watch the Disappeared episode finally.
    To be clear- Campos (individual depicted) was NOT arrested the morning of Jennifer’s disappearance. I developed this information for LE- and I have copies of all the associated reports/docs/citations/bond info, etc. My feeling on Travis is if he showed up to get the cell phone he would have had it and we know he did not. The CCTV video did not show the individual going into the apartments- it ended at the fence line.

    I personally do not believe Jennifer was abducted or trafficked.

  11. Danielle says:


    What do you think happened to her? Just your opinion.

    I believe Jennifer was killed by someone she knew who did not take kindly to her rejection of them- escalated by her trip with Rob.
    Every piece of evidence points to this being someone she knew. I do not believe the individual tasked with moving her vehicle knew it was hers or the circumstances.

  12. Danielle says:

    My best friend and I have the same exact belief. Thanks for sharing & thanks for this website.

  13. charles feezell jr says:

    after watching i’ds coverage of this story. several things haven’t happened 1. the kessee family wanted cops to talk to certain people why didn’t they 2.the original detectives kept no notes-could they or a cop be the killer 3. if it is someone in police who killed her did the opd cover it up thus why this case is unsolved. 4. don’t automatically blame opd. 5. what was jen’s relation to her mom dad and brother. 6.could joe kenda be called in to review/ solve this case

    1. LE error.
    2. Not in my opinion, just really bad detectives- and negligent.
    3. No evidence of that whatsoever.
    4. I don’t know what that means.
    5. Excellent.
    6. I have no idea who that is- I do not expect OPD to call anyone “in”. I find them receptive to leads.

  14. charles feezell jr says:

    why has no one considered it possible that at the time of her disappearance, new condos we’re being built thus the killer buried her under the cement

    Because of the construction schedule and no evidence pointing to that scenario.

  15. ueGary says:

    I am from South Africa and watched the Dissappeared programme on Tuesday.

    The first question that came to me was, if someone has abducted/murdered her why did they move the car at all? What was the point – Moves it +/- 1 mile parks it and then walks all the way back to the condo (as per the blood hound trail).
    I know that sometimes in crime there is no logic, but to me this is really baffling. The abductor/killer obviously had their own transport so why bother touching Jennifer’s car let alone moving it. Secondly, where was Jennifer while this person is doing all this, for me it means there was at least 2 people involved in this. But this doesn’t add up either, why didn’t the accomplice follow Jennifer’s car and pick the person up at the cars drop off point?
    Lastly, the person caught on the camera really does not seem to be in much of a hurry (not sure if this is due to the time delays of the cam recordings)… but is definitely not running back to the condo.

    On the programme they mentioned that an ex was in a bar across the street the night before the dissapearence, was his story credible? Was he really just there or was he looking to bump into Jennifer ..!!!!! I don’t believe in coincidences too much…. Is his alibi really solid?

    I know that some of these questions can’t be answered, but just by asking them somebody smarter than me might think of something else….?

    I really hope that something breaks in this case, and it is solved…

    ueGary- welcome to BOC. Give yourself more credit- your first question is critical (from a profiling perspective). You are exactly right- WHY would an offender move a vehicle from her home and park it in broad daylight the next day following a major alert- under a CCTV system (3 cams) everyone knew was there. I will cut to the chase on that one- because wherever it was when she disappeared ( and I do not believe she disappeared I believe she was killed) ties her to the offender. The #1 reason any offender stages a crime scene is to avoid detection. I have never believed the individual who moved her car had any incling about the circumstances of its owner.

    blink, not sure what this means, but I ran across a Jennifer kessee facebook page- not the one her family put up. could this be the killer b. an identity thief or 3. police hoping someone willfind her page so they can investigate. I pray she’s found

    link please?

  17. charles feezell jr says:

    in reply to a link go to . type in Jennifer kessee it is a blank page no photo nada. keep up the good work

  18. charles feezell jr says:

    is there a photo of Julius glenn gause. could johnny campos who has a blank facebook page and Puerto rico location and gausse be connected to the crime. why did gausse make the hunting season comment if hes not involved

    I have no idea who you are referring to and Campos does not have a blank page.

  19. Rose says:

    ueGary has nailed important observations.
    Blink – are you suggesting her car was at a rendevous point or the home of the
    perpetrator who had the “staff” or associate(s) to delegate its move?

    I am suggesting and probably alleging is a better term, that the individual who moved Jennifer’s car to its recovery location is not the same person responsible for her disappearance.

  20. charles feezell jr says:

    johnny campos drove a blue 2000 ford Taurus. did police do a dna test on his car. if not trace it by the VIN number then test it. 2. what time was his speeding ticket 3. was his car seen near jens condo 4. has st Croix been checked for her body since he hated rob dating jen 5. Dorothy price hill of facebook and help find missing Jennifer kesse claims she knows a woman who can tell what happened to jen and how she was killed. to read her messages you must be a member of that site. they have the messages 5. put pressure on fbi and opd to go international with the kesse story

    Charles, when I developed these leads in the case I turned them over to OPD. If that individual is claiming to have solved this case I am certain they can provide that info to OPD.

  21. Alicat says:

    Hi Blink

    Can i ask you why, if you think the person in the cctv who moved her car had no idea about the events and Jennifer, why would he not come forward? I mean i assume he was asked to move the car by someone? Apologies if you already answered this btw.
    Thanks and am so impressed with your work around this case.

    Welcome Alicat- I make a number of assumptions re the reason the person who moved Jenn’s car did not come forward- keeping in mind here that when Jenn’s car was located the recovery of it in the lot was very, very public.
    1. Possibility individual is not a US citizen nor are members of his family- concerned for the ramifications of that scenario.
    2. Possibility individual believed he would be on the hook for Jenn’s disappearance.
    3. Possibility of great fear of job loss, or retribution, discovery of other illegal activity.

    As you saw/read there is no shortage of connections to possibilities for why someone would not come forward- this individual was declared a suspect at one time- I have never agreed with that as a strategy and I believe strongly that Mr. Campos would be in a position to shed more light on this issue.


  22. Donnie Griffin says:

    Hi Blink, it’s been a while. I lived in the same town as Campos for about 5 years. I followed your investigation very closely. I ran into him once at a local eatery. It was the strangest feeling having him sit across from me, with me knowing what I knew, and him not having a clue all this was running through my head. Very chilling.

    Couple of questions, do you still believe that the Benevides property where her phone last pinged is still relevant? Do you ever see the authorities releasing the information about where the mace was found? And finally, do you believe the OSCO is taking this case seriously? I have a hard time believing they are, for whatever reason. Thank you.

    1. Yes, I believe the Benevides property parcel is relevant.
    2. No, OPD has not released the location of the pepper spray. I do not expect them to.
    3. The case is with OPD, not OCSO. I believe they take her case “seriously”, yes. I believe the errors in the case early on, and some major prosecutorial failures in the region have made this lea extremely conservative and I would even say “gunshy” in their approach. I am supportive of them, but I am on the record I do not feel they are doing everything they can in their power to recover Jennifer.
    4. I remain convinced for a variety of reasons that Campos has information that could help recover Jennifer Kesse and that he has been untruthful to others regarding his relationship with Jenn.

  23. Vivian says:

    Hi Blink,

    Just read through your work on Jennifer’s case for the second time…everytime I read through it I find something that I missed previously….Would like to say thank you for doing this for Jennifer and her family….I have one question…

    You have evidence that Jennifer met someone at the Monkey Bar the night of 1/23/06, in your opinion what happened from there? Her cell phone was turned off at 10:40 and presumably the battery was removed… Do you think that Jennifer was taken immediately and murdered and disposed of? Kept somewhere for a period of time? Did she and the person she met at the MB return to her condo?

    Just curious…..thank you and please keep up your great work on Jennifer’s case….

    Take care….


    Hi Vivian (great name) the Monkey Bar outing was not the 23rd. My personal opinion is that Jennifer left her condo with the suspect willingly or left to meet him- she knew him, at some point a physical altercation ensued (attack) and Jennifer was killed. I believe her remains were disposed of under the cover of night.
    Her case will never leave me.

  24. Vivian Roberts says:

    Hi Blink,

    Have you heard about an arrest being made in the Tara Grinstead case? Ryan Duke is his name…..

    I am so excited , it has renewed my hope that the end of this nightmare for the Kesses is close….


    YES!!!!! I totally agree and I pray she is recovered. I am told he confessed.

  25. Vivian Roberts says:

    Payne Lindsey and Dr. Maurice Godwin are being credited somewhat with getting Tara’s case this far as it was stalled like Jennifer’s….The thing in Tara’s favor was the GBI stayed on it…..I have written Payne Lindsey and so have many others to take a look at Jennifer’s case next….Dr. Godwin says that Jennifer’s case is not an open case, don’t know what that means….

    Dr. Godwin is incorrect. How are Lindsey/Godwin credited with assisting in Tara’s case?

  26. jill says:

    Hi B,
    Why no posts since February? Is there any developemnt?
    thank you

    This thread you mean?

  27. jill says:

    i dont see any news posts

  28. Mark says:

    Hi , any updates on jenn? And on mr campos?

    Unfortunately none, sir.

  29. Mark says:

    Do you still consider him (campos) to be the most likely perpetrator? And how likely is this case ever going to progress any further ?

    Thanks , mark.

    I have never said that Mark- that would be an allegation. What I believe is that Mr. Campos has a great deal of information regarding Jennifer’s disappearance that he has yet to provide to the law enforcement agencies handling her case and likely members of his own family and colleagues.

  30. Jayson says:

    Hey there,

    I’ve been following the Jennifer Kesse case for some time since I lived in Orlando when all of this happened. I’ve always wondered if it will be solved. Always come to this site to read updates but haven’t done so in a year or so.

    On some of your comments you mentioned you had a pretty good opinion on what happened. Have you ever shared what your opinion is exactly? Very curious.

    Thank you!

    I have. I believe that Jennifer was the victim of homicide by someone she knew, likely a situation of unrequited affection that was brought to a head following her trip with Rob. I do not believe the person who moved her car was involved in her disappearance/death. I don’t think whoever requested that had the presence of mind to consider it would be caught on tape, OR it was designed to frame someone else if they had that potential knowledge. These are the markings of a disorganized and unsophisticated criminal offender. What is slightly elevated is that her work bag and some personal possessions are missing as well as the fact that she has not been found. Someone who was not tied to her personally would have no need to discard them yet park her car. People stage crime scenes to avoid detection because they are tied to the victim- 100% of the time. Mr. Campos can offer OPD information that he has not previously, imo.


  31. Katie S says:

    Who is the person in the “very distinctive uniform” that you have a side by side comparison of the CCTV security footage? Do you have an idea of who that person is or is it just for comparison purposes? It looks so much like the same person. The stride length, gait, clothes, and hat all match so closely. Is that coincidence?

  32. Mary jones says:

    What needs to be done to investigate the Benhen parcel?

    It has been.

  33. Mary jones says:

    OH ok thanks!!

  34. Vivian Roberts says:


    Could I ask you to answer this question privately if you choose to answer it at all?

    Do you know of any people in Jennifer’s circle of friends or family who had an injury to their mouth when they were interviewed after Jennifer went missing?

    If this is too absurd a question to answer , please forgive me…I have a reason for asking and was just curious….

    I so love your work on Jennifer’s case and wish that you were the detective on her case, your work is exceptional…

    Thanks, have a great day…


    Vivian, thank you, I have great respect for you also and because I do… yes, that is an absurd question. No doubt tied to some psychic info, lol? We have to focus on evidence here. Everything I have uncovered over the years has never led to anywhere other than what I have written. Jennifer and her family never leave me and I pray daily it will be the day we can bring her home.

  35. Tracy says:

    I have always thought one of two scenarios …

    1). She went out that night to get that cell phone mailed out to Travis, her brother’s friend. I recall reading that it was a new cell phone given to him by his workplace and that he was going to need it asap.
    2). OR that after hanging up from Rob, she remembered the DVD player in her back seat and ran out to get it.

    From what I have heard of her (and I have watched this story since Day 1) tells me that she would not have left to meet anyone for anything. She HAD to have been very tired and exhausted after spending the night before saying her goodbyes to Rob AFTER their discussion about ‘where are we going from here’. They probably didn’t get alot of sleep. And then driving from Lauderdale to Orlando and then working from 9-6. Getting home about 7 pm. Nope, I’m not buying that she would have been up to then getting showered and going back out. With an important meeting the next morning to boot. I believe she went out of her apartment that night more than likely to retrieve something her car, possibly the DVR player. I really think this is the way it all went down. Now who I can’t be sure. But I am certain that’s what took her out of her apartment and into evil.

  36. Tracy says:

    And also, let me say that I agree with you, Blink. Pretty much across the board. I have NEVER felt that the POI was involved. I think the way he carefully parked the car and took a few seconds to get out and walk calmly away indicates someone that was hired to park it there. Possibly after repairing a tire or doing an oil change or something that the real perp would have had done in order to have a ‘fall guy’ drop it off at the HOG apartments. I believe the establishment would have been close by. I believe they probably gave a fake name when dropping her car off and told the establishment they had to get back to work since it was around lunch time. I believe they asked if one of the workers could drop THEIR car off at THEIR apartment at HOG when they were done doing whatever it was. I have mentioned previously that all this time later, I feel it would be an excellent idea of erecting a huge billboard in the vicinity of the Mall of Millenia with the POI’s image walking past the fence with the words…’Have you seen this person? Does this person look familiar? Do you recall where you were or worked in January, 2006? I know it’s a long shot but if I were the family, I would do it. Just in case this person simply didn’t see the surveillance videos out at the time. It just wouldn’t hurt, that’s all. I’m sure a GO FUND ME page would work tremendously in gathering the funds to do a few billboards in that area. Thanks for ‘listening’ everyone. Sorry it’s so long.

    There can be no question that the answer to the identity of the unknown male subject who parked her car at HOTG lies within the question- “why that parking lot?.” In my view all other questions and answers are derived from that truth.
    Ergo- the residents and their associations (potentially) to Jennifer or the unsub are paramount. I have never been satisfied that at the time anyone (all) with access was successfully interviewed. To hold out the video for 18 months was beyond foolish. Keep in mind- when that vehicle was located the lot was restricted for several hours- no tenant that was not out of town (and even then?) is likely to have missed the police and SAR activity in that small parking lot. My point- if a resident or an associate of the resident was involved in moving her car, I place a very high probability that individual was now aware they could be some sort of accessory (or they already knew they were) to a crime. I was told they did not preform the standard “knock and talks” because they did not have access to a bilingual detective or officer at the time- if you can believe that in Orange County Florida. That apartment had a high number of non-US citizens- as you can imagine it can be incredibly difficult for them to feel comfortable to come forward.
    As you read- it never made sense to me that the POI who moved her car in broad daylight, left items of value inside, her personal and work items remain missing, visible from the outside yet locked it and took the keys

    I respectfully disagree any service was preformed on her car between the hours of 10PM and say 10Am the next morning (when most service stations opened) for a variety of reasons but the least of which was there was a BOLO out for her and her vehicle before it was located and any service station of any kind that is required to maintain LP’s and VIN’s would have had a hit before it was found.

  37. Tracy says:

    Here I am again. I just wanted to say to the folks that keep writing in about the key and pepper spray being found and why would anyone turn it in. I can tell you that if I were to EVER find anything like that, I would always turn it into the police the same day! You just never know when something like that could be the piece to the puzzle. First of all, I think it is odd to find anything like that in a ditch or the side of the road or in a wooded area. That would raise my antennas immediately. I would encourage anyone that every finds any personal items…keys, phones, ipods, backpacks, etc to always turn it in to authorities. I would hope everyone knows this but by the number of people writing in about how they are puzzled why anyone would turn something like that in, I would be puzzled if they DIDN’T.

    In my view the folks that turned in the pepper spray are to be commended.

  38. Tracy says:

    Totally agree, Blink, on all accounts. I DID learn something here though tonight that I didn’t know. Since the day Jennifer disappeared I have been watching and reading this case and I NEVER knew that the DVD player was at HER house. I could have swore I read somewhere through the years that Rob had given her the DVD player and that they buckled it up so she could take it home to her place. Now I read that it was at her place all along and that she never left Robs place with it Monday morning meaning that she had to have buckled it up Monday night (or Tues morn if that’s what one believes) to take FOR WHATEVER REASON. This news, if true, definitely changes my thoughts on a few points.

    Tracy, to your credit, you picked up on what I intended to be a major point. Jenn’s mail was inside, and her work bag, and Travis’s phone, which we know she only located after also returning home is missing. SHE DID, however, pick up packaging and carrier supplies when she was at work that day, some of which were on her desk. I am confident Jenn left her home that night. I can’t say for certain for what reason, but I believe the evidence points to that scenario.

  39. Tracy says:

    Good Morning, Blink! I was just noticing on Jennifer Kesse’s website that there is going to be an Orlando Police Department press conference this coming Wednesday, Jan 24, 2018 at 10:00am directly across from the HOG apartments. It is my summation that that this date coincides with Jenn’s disappearance 12 years ago. Is this solely what the gathering is for or do you know if there is something the OPD has to share with us? Thanks.

    Did you post this more than once or am I losing my mind, lol?
    I do not have any new info unfortunately, so I am guessing it is just a commitment that Jenn’s case remains open. I would be thrilled to hear of any advancements. Due to the location, it is probably also a call for leads re the POI that parked her car.

  40. Tracy says:

    Just respecting the anniversary, if there is anything new I am not aware of it.

  41. Tracy says:

    Hi Blink, Not sure why my last post showed up twice! LOL.

    So, my husband and I attended Jenn’s memorial today and the OPD spoke along with Drew and Joyce. Logan looked perturbed and frustrated to say the least. I surmise it is due to the news that they are finally planning to put pressure on the OPD to release details that have been formerly kept ‘secret’ even to the family. As we listened to Teresa Sprague, the newest detective on the case, speak, I found my mind wandering and thinking how wonderful it would be if the POI (in a huge mural on the side of the Jennifer Kesse bus,) would finally come forward. Whether he was involved or not, it would answer the questions that would finally bring closure to this case. I guess we can only hope?

    Tracy- I appreciate your posts. Almost 5 years ago I made an agreement with the OPD that I would not publish details of Jennifer’s case that I did not disclose in my published work. That said- I agreed to investigate Jenn’s disappearance with Drew Kesse and publish my findings in an effort to progress her case. I most certainly had no guarantees it would “going in” and one of the reasons I had not done so sooner was because I did not agree (investigatively) that the “abducted from her home by a worker scenario” was supported by the evidence.
    I was also fairly confident that the POI who parked her car was not likely the individual responsible for her disappearance, but most certainly would lead to that individuals identity.

    Without breaking an agreement, because I most certainly have been told and do believe that our work generated new leads in her case that ultimately will be used in a criminal prosecution, I would suggest to you that nothing I uncovered did anything but reinforce what I concluded then. Jenn’s disappearance (and I believe murder) was perpetrated by someone she knew- likely the result of a bruised ego as a result of her trip with Rob. As most disorganized offenders are, her killer will be brought to justice by analyzing his post offense behavior.

    I am not at all hopeful that any arrests will be made prior to Jennifer’s recovery, however. OPD has had a series of prosecutorial losses (Det. Sprague involved in one I am familiar with). This would absolutely become (once again) a high profile case and I am sure you are aware of the hot mess that is Aramis’s office wrt to potential death penalty cases. The poise the Kesse’s have shown over the years is nothing short of remarkable, imo.

  42. Tracy says:

    I have looked ALL over this website to find a technical IT geek that can look into this site. It is not working! I have posted 20 times and they never end up getting posted. Am I doing something wrong? I don’t think so. I’m sure this won’t get posted either but in case it does, it is the only way I have of letting someone know the website is NOT WORKING!!! Geez, have you been getting other posts? If not, I would think you all would have noticed by now there is something wrong.

    Hi Tracy- I addressed this in another post of yours- thank you for your patience. Let me know if you have any questions I did not cover.

  43. Rose says: April 2018 press

    Respectfully submitted and it has taken me over 5 years to get to this point- but I am now 100% confident that Jennifer’s case will not be resolved under the current investigative assignments.

  44. Rose says:

    I don’t know if the April youtube of a press conf & parental plea was a mere rehash of the Jan press conf mentioned above. I gather there was a tip that didn’t pan out, and it was said evidence from the car will be resubmitted for new analysis to a crime lab due to tech advances….one presumes dna tracing. Sounds like car residue is the OPD’s whole ballgame.

    There is no suspect DNA in this case, so once again- wth is she talking about? It was a rehash, yes. Beyond me how no reporter even asked the question. The Kesse’s are well aware of the level of ineptitude we are talking about here. Pains me to say it- I mean that sincerely.

  45. Rose says:

    If you ask me, and no one did, there was no
    need for this case to go unsolved. But the first
    couple months were critical.

    It does need to be in other hands & not reliant
    on finding a body, which likely is the excuse OPD will
    ride on forever.

    So frustrating. Your entirely correct. They spend their time chasing bullshit sightings that could not possibly be her, and as I once pointed out, minor technology would have eliminated quickly, OR they are hopeful the suspects marriage falls apart and she turns on him. The very antithesis of actual criminal investigation. The reality is the lead detective took a major hit in a failed prosecution that was very high profile in the area, so there’s that.

    They could never prosecute this case without Jenn’s remains- but that’s the thing, does someone think they will unearth themselves and make it to their office wrapped in a bow- on their own? Ludicrous. In the words (yes again) of my dear friend, colleague and mentor- “You can’t unf*ck a case.” It is what it is. Focus on resolving it effectively for the family first and worry about dealing with the file after. This poor young lady. This poor family deserves better.

  46. Ed says:

    I challenge to tell me this does not look like a FACE circled in Black. I have sent this to Orlando Florida and the FBI and IP did not hear anything back in a year.If i do not hear back i will go live with these images to get the worlds opinion on if the feel this is a person’s face that has a mustache.!255&parId=75FDA676DAA6D1EE!105&authkey=!AgoLf8muqZbOtpM&Bsrc=SMIT&ref=button

    Ed- As I thoroughly explained to you personally on more than one occasion- overpixilating images is not useful as an evidentiary matter, but more importantly, they are entirely subjective. I have personally viewed them on what I will refer to as “forensic enabled screens” and I had, in the past, also forwarded them myself to the investigating team on Jenn’s case. I realize you think you see something, and I respect that. That said, (as an example) there isn’t anything that changes the description of the individual or identifies them uniquely. There isn’t any investigator I am aware of that thinks the person is a woman, and if you have to basically alter the imagery wrt a possible mustache or tattoo, there is simply no way to credibly offer that as descriptive to a named suspect. What you are offering is not admissible, and frankly, that starts at the fact that you do not even have the CCTV raw file- its copies from copies. I was the FIRST to champion and distribute your findings years ago and unfortunately they are just not useful to the case as presented. If its public opinion you are after to disagree with those of us with specific credentials to analyze images, feel free, but I doubt that this case needs yet another red herring or distraction as it is.

  47. Cindy says:

    Interesting, I went to an estate sale at 14238 Corkwood Lane Astatula, Florida. The lady, Brittany, informed me she was selling her home the reason of the sale. Curious, I looked it up on Zillow and it is for sale for 2.5 million. WOW! That make me wonder what they did for a living so I looked at the property apprasier and it was actually owned by an LLC, with a registered agent in Lakeland. Who puts their home c/o of a LLC? Well, for one, those who don’t want to be known. Further digging and poking around, I found out! I learned her name is Brittany Ann Sprague Benevides! Oh my, was married to the one and only Pedro Benevides during his arrest. Her divorce is recently done and she is selling the house and having an estate sale. She is not having an estate sale this upcoming weekend but will have it every weekend until October. Her daughter was there, Mercedes, which is probably Pedro’s. I recently have been reading about Pedro. I can’t believe this connection. I found that he has pages and pages of Inc’s and LLCs in Florida alone. I read about his schemes and more. All from me going to one estate sale. Brittany informed me she was downsizing and ready to start over (I BET!!!). I am super suprised she is not sitting in jail herself. I just read all of this article. I had to read it twice to fully capture the story. It’s sad really. That these kinds of dirt bags are out there.

  48. Dr. Pepper says:

    B! I just saw the headline that Jennifer’s parents won access to th entire case file. You were the first person I thought of! Surely you’re still discussing cold cases online….where do u hang out? Reddit?

    Huh? I don’t discuss anything I have worked on anywhere but here Pep.
    To be honest, I am thrilled for Drew and Joyce, it was my suggestion after reviewing Jenn’s case that they file a FOIA for all case files circa 2011-2012. However, I am very confident there is nothing in those files that is going to point anywhere but where I “found” in this case- Maybe what it might do is put appropriate pressure for persons to speak out and actually progress the investigation.


  49. Bill says:

    In light of the tracking evidence, do you think the POI was a worker at the Mosaic who just got paid by the perpetrator to park Jenn’s car at HOTG and then returned back to work? If the POI is just that and not involved in this crime then why didn’t/hasn’t he come forward? Thanks!

    What tracking evidence?

  50. Dean says:

    Hi Blink,
    I’m just wondering if this theory is still the one you subscribe to.
    Not sure which theory you are referring to?
