The interview with Jennifer's brother, Logan, on WESH TV (channel 2 news) that aired yesterday evening had me thinking of alternate scenarios.
Apparently Logan had been using & in possession of "a friend's cell phone" that he said he left on Jen's nightstand. When he realized he had left it there - he called her & requested that she 'overnight the phone' to his friend (because it was his fault!) and he gave her the mailing address.
This call to Jen had to have occurred on Monday - probably in the evening. She spoke on the phone with her boyfriend at 10 pm. As brother Logan wanted the phone "overnighted" - I'm wondering if Jennifer didn't attempt to make the relatively short trek out to the airport area where there is a huge Fed Ex, UPS & an extended hours main post office. The plus for that decision is that there is much less traffic & congestion late at night - not to mention no long wait lines for counter help & one's package can be on a plane the same night. I've made that late-nite trek to FedEx a number of times and honestly do not recommend it for any woman all by herself.
If Jen already had the packing materials and proper postage or an acct. with UPS or FedEx - she could have simply gone out and looked for a more localized drop box. Perhaps, that's what she did.
I'm remembering that she did not answer her phone at 9 am - did not have her usual 'before work' conversation with her boyfriend that morning. Somehow - I do not think Jen was abducted from her apt. I think "something happened to her" after she left to mail that cell phone for her brother.
Robbery for drug money? Sexual assault? Murdered - because she fought back? I don't know - I hope not. (Her parents are convinced she's alive!) I do know that there are a lot of unsavory areas out that way that I would never want to traverse alone - but, especially at night.
I'm also wondering why Logan & his friends were staying in Jen's new condo while she was on vacation with her boyfriend?
Where does Logan normally live?
Why was Logan utilizing 'a friend's cell phone'? He doesn't have his own phone??
If he's 'local' - why didn't he go back over to the condo and retrieve the forgotton cell phone on his own & make the effort to mail it back to "his friend"? He clearly said it was 'his fault' that "he" left it there - not that his friend left it there. JMO - but, he sounded rather irresponsible to me.
The family - parents & Logan, are still asking in news conferences here locally that the perpetrator just let Jen go. The latest community search began again this morning at 8:30 - a beautiful morning, great weather. Turned windy & rainy this afternoon and temps are dropping.
The Kesse family interview taped by Larry King Live several days ago (when it was preempted by breaking news of a possible poisonous agent in the attic of a Senate office building) was aired last night in the 9 pm & midnight time slots. It was the first 8 minutes of the program. The 3 am show preempted the Kesse segment altogether as CNN was continuously following the breaking news story of Israeli PM Sharon's most recent setback & surgery.
I'm not aware what the funds are being used for but, the family is requesting donations to the Jennifer Kesse trust fund - at any Bank of America location.
WFTV - (9 Investigates) uncovered information that Orlando based "Child Watch of North America" utilizes 91% of all their donations to cover their own salaries. They (Child Watch) were soliciting donations when I was there last weekend - prior to the "9 Investigates" report being aired. Don't know about now. Will post link later if I can find one.
Edited to add:
I just reviewed the interview Logan gave on a different channel - WFTV. In this 'later' interview - Logan says that his friend left behind the now missing cell phone and he just contacted Jen on Monday evening for her to mail it to his friend. Said Jen would do it the following day. The cell phone was never received by the "friend". So -- who knows which story is factually correct or even if it matters. Either way - Jennifer is still missing.
Logan also said Jen had driven back from Ft. Lauderdale on Monday morning & went straight to work - not returning to her condo until that evening. Said that Jen & her boyfriend had been together for about a year and were very much in love. One of the family members (Mom?) said on LKL that Jen & her boyfriend traveled back & forth between Lauderdale & Orlando each weekend - and that "he" was as devastated as they were.
