    Interesting episode from "Unconcluded". They interview Jennifer's dad, Drew.

    https://audioboom.com/posts/6334818-...-going-forward

    Audio in this episode is poor especially when he talks about Jennifer's phones. But the message is that he really doesn't have any meaningful information on the activity of the two phones she had and he tries to tell everyone to quit focusing on the phones.

    This is really strange because in most cases the missing person has ONE cell phone and it is either found at home or in their car or not found at all. Here Jennifer has TWO cell phones. What are the chances the abductor finds the 2nd one? Or finds the phone Jennifer is going mail, assumes it is hers and looks no further? But here there are TWO phones and no useful data.

    I think that second phone was in her briefcase, but jmo. Could it be that the abductor didn't know about the second phone until , or if, he looked in her briefcase ?

    I put this in same category as the police saying don;t worry about the POI clothes because their uniforms showed up light in the surveillance camera and puzzled them. If you don't focus on the phones and don't focus on the POI details such as clothes, then what do you focus on? There's nothing else.

    I understand police have other crimes to solve but there's no info and essentially waiting for someone to confess on their death bed ala Tara Grinstead case. I did my best with the POI images but ten years and tens of thousands of views later didn't do any good.

    Interesting mention by drew about a painter? who allegedly said that jenn left him in her flat to finish up , even tho drew was on the other end of jenns mobile and heard her say , they will have to come back... ( jenn always apparently made sure to be on the phone when anyone was in her flat doing any work)

    There is no question that every cell phone company has the ability to retrieve information as to what cell towers any and all calls from a particular phone were routed through. This includes outgoing incoming and unanswered incoming calls. There have been many cases covered here in WS where this information has been used in the investigation and introduced at the trial. There are limitations with information. The cell tower that a particular call is routed through may not be the closest tower or the predicted tower that a phone at a particular location would normally use. During periods of high use or technical problems calls may route through more distant towers. What tower a call is routed though gives a very general indication of where the phone was at the time. Normally the range of one tower will overlap the range of other towers.

    The second obvious limitation of this information is that it only works if the phone is used. Since Jenifer did not use her phone during the time in question, no in information was available.

    "Ping" information would appear to be far more useful. Every cell phone that is powered on will emit a ping every seven seconds and that ping will be recorded at any cell tower in range that is fully functional and has not max'ed out its capacity. Furthermore, if the ping from a particular phone is picked up at multiple towers, by comparing the strength of the signal, technicians can triangulate the location of the phone with a high degree of accuracy. The trouble is that with every phone in a city pinging every seven seconds of of multiple towers, there would be an incredible amount of information collected and much of this would not be "readily available" .

    I have heard of this type of information being used in high profile terrorism investigations but it may have been obtained with the cell phone company knowing in advance to track a particular phone or the information was only found with a painstaking (and expensive) manual search. For whatever reason, a "ping trace" is not available for a routine criminal investigation; which Jennifer's case was.

    It is not clear what information Drew's ping study provided but, most likely, the vast majority of the pings from both phones were not identified and what little information was obtained was pretty much worthless.

    I thought LE has not ruled anyone out at this point ? The painter who was working on her apartment is interesting. Also, I cannot get over the coincidence of her ex both staying in her condo when she was on vacation and then going back to drink in the bar opposite her condo on the last night she was known to be alive. I know we cannot implicate anyone here, but wow...

    I think the bf and family were ruled out with polygraph, out of town alibi, etc. On other hand, Orlando police are not going to name any suspects besides the POI parking Jennifer's car. And I guess nameless Latino construction workers with questionable US citizenship appears to be fair game. Maybe someone who is a suspect in another murder (I don't know what the status of that Ocoee guy and missing woman is, and didn't look it up, my bad) can be mentioned, I think we've done that.

    Other than that I am sorry to say it's basically waiting for someone to confess on their death bed or something, who knows. Not really anything anyone can look at, and I'm a strong proponent of not naming everyone mentioned in a case as a potential murderer because I've seen it through the years in Chandra Levy case, but Jennifer or anyone's potential behavior hinges on acquaintances and past and present relationships so it's a real catch-22.

    Of course that just gets us into activity after 10pm which no one wants to accept anyway so only acceptable thing is to do what's been done for past eleven going on twelve years, and blame a painter who skipped the country. But who managed to make Jennifer disappear before he went.

    As has been said before (and where the saying originated I do not recall), a coincidence is a clue. (I'm probably paraphrasing. Sorry.)

    In a missing person case, almost without fail, the family of the missing rarely look askance at anyone close to the family or the missing person. How many times have we heard "oh, so-and-so would never hurt my missing daughter," or "so-and-so just isn't the type of person who would harm another," etc., etc.

    And yet. Over and over again, we find that so-and-so would do such a thing.

    EVERYONE should be investigated in a missing person case. Especially those close with and in proximity to the missing person. Yes, that is probably darn uncomfortable to the family. But what is most important? I'd say it is finding the missing person. Everyone else can just deal with uncomfortable feelings.

    Unfortunately, many families won't allow the questions to be asked that need answered until it is too late, sometimes years into an investigation. When they finally begin to have doubts, it just might be too late.
