    I drove in a car pool when my kids were that age. There were 4 kids all together. It was sometimes frustrating when 3 kids were at the car and ready to go, and one was MIA. But all the parents agreed that we would NEVER just leave without finding out why one kid was not there. Sometimes kids make impulsive new plans, or they 'forge' or are held up after school, but we still need to figure out where they are, imo.

    One thing that is not known is how reliable Jessica and her family were with their morning routine. I remember from my own childhood that there were some kids who were supposed to be part of our walking group that were always late, etc., and sometimes eventually we would just go on ahead without them because they were just notoriously late. We would never have thought anything other than being waylaid was the problem.

    I may have missed this, but did a phone conversation take place between Jessica and her friend that morning? I know she attempted to call a couple of times... but did they actually speak? If I saw that I had a missed phone call from someone I was supposed to meet up with, and then they weren't at our meeting place in time, I would probably think they had been calling to tell me they weren't going to be able to make it.

    Obviously, it would have been much better if the friend's parent had called Jessica's mom that morning, but I her not being there at the time she was supposed to be *might* not have been unusual. That's not to slam them - just a possible explanation for why her absence that morning didn't set the dad into a frenzy.

    With my eyes the way they are, I seem to need a break before I get completely caught up on here, and get pages behind again by the time I come back. Because of that, I've been skimming through many posts instead of reading each one word for word like I usually do. Please forgive me if this has already been suggested by someone else (my ideas are usually so off-the-wall that most seem to be unique though!)

    It seems obvious (to me) that the perp wasn't too concerned about hiding the identity of the body, or he would probably have also hidden the backpack somewhere. I was wondering last night if there could be another "practical" reason for dismembering a body, and I did think of one today. It's possible that the person isn't physically capable of carrying 60+ pounds; it could be because he/she is small, has a bad back, some other health problem that restricts lifting (heart, lungs, etc.) or maybe an injury that requires crutches or a cane, which would make it somewhat necessary to use just one hand for carrying.

    I have no idea who the neighbors are, and there are probably none that fit, but I was thinking that someone could have asked her for help carrying something into the house, and offering her and her friend a ride to school if it took too long. That could get her inside without having to carry her, but then getting her back out would be a problem - it would have been too obvious to be seen dragging her out, even if she was wrapped in something.

    the man spoke of seeing a green truck with a man walking the area where the body was found. he said he'd never seen the green truck or the man before and he knows pretty much everyone who walks down there.

    the lady said she saw a car stop on the bridge and just stay there a few days ago.

    maybe the suspect scouted out the area in a car, then returned with the body in the truck.

    Have a link?

    I guess maybe fingerprints could be used to help find them. A siting at a location maybe child touched something and the police could ID the prints to say if it was the child or not. Prints would also be useful linking the victim to the perp.
    We've had a couple of instances in NE where fingerprints helped resolve a child custody issue. I don't remember details.

    Yes this is strange to me too. I would be frantic for the child. Any child I pick up for another parent and at one time I waited with children for the bus and I knew all of the children that were supposed to be there and I had parents cell numbers and a number for the school. If a child did not arrive for any reason I called the parents number and then the school. Luckily the children's parents except for once or twice called me to let me know if child not riding the bus. For me I was able to always account for every child but if I could not I would call the police right away. Call me over reactive but I would be. All my own opinion of course. I am not trying to judge just thinking out loud.

    Jessica's mom did talk quite a bit about how helpful Jessica was.
