    After reading the book, I believe her kidnapper was someone close to her, someone very close to her. There was a lot of "interesting" things going on around Mason City during that time. The author did a great job of bringing it all together.

    Alright so I finished 'dead air'. I typically do not believe in psychics or in mediums however, the author Beth B.touched upon how a medium believes that there is a possibility that Jodi could have been taken to a reservation park north of Mason City and buried there, idk how much credence I can give to psychics or mediums, just mpo. After reading this book, it still left me confused as to whom abducted Jodi. It could very well be 'cornseed guy' or it could be someone who was infatuated with her, yes, it did seem like 'cornseed guy' was obsessed but from the book there appeared to be more then one man that took a liking to Jodi. Is her abduction related to the death of Billy Pruin? I'm not for sure. I do not believe Jodi was randomly abducted by a stranger, since she was late for work from oversleeping. Either someone was stalking her or someone that was very close to her wanted something more and she did not and he became angry and so forth.

    Remembering Jodi...

    I was in the Mason City area (driving back home from Minneapolis) a few weeks ago, took a slight detour, and drove by her apartment, and even parked exactly (where I believe, judging by photos I've seen) where she was abducted. The eerie factor was the highest I've ever experienced. I was only 9 years old when she went missing, but it's just unreal, after reading the book... You get so connected to it.

    I explored Mason City a bit. Mason City is exactly as people describe. Quiet, quaint... but almost had a dated feel to it... Like it's sitting in the 70's/80's still (I don't really know how to describe it). That being said, it's your typical Midwestern "city" (Population 28,000 is considered a "city" in the upper Midwest).

    The apartment complex (Key Apartments) is small... If I remember right, I believe there are only 3 buildings and 2 small parking lots. There are parks immediately to the west, south, and east; a river is to the south.

    My visit to Mason City, and my impressions from it, definitely reaffirm my belief that Jodi knew her abductor well. Having grown up in the Upper Midwest and the feel I got from Mason City, I find it extremely unlikely this was random. Again, the book provides a lot of insight.

    What is everyone's take on mediums and psychic's? My personal opinion is, I have never believed in them and I still do not. However, after reading 'Dead Air', it has made me question my belief, but I am still not sold on the idea of psychics playing on the emotional strings of the families of the missing.

    I do not believe in them, BUT I would not always discount them as I would nto be surprised if some people passed on information they had, but claimed it was some sort of vision rather than admitted they knew something.

    was it normal for Jodi to be so late to work. it always struck me as odd that she would be so late on that day. If it had been a stalker waiting for her, they might have thought she was not going to work that day and decided to try another day. i always wondered if she had left at the normal time, and the abductor had taken her back to her flat. Maybe she was normally late, and quite cool about it, but if my boss called me and woke me up to tell me I was nearly two hours late I would be flustered, but she sounded quite calm. Also if I was already so late, I would have a quick five minute shower, grab my stuff and go, but it sounds like Jodi took another three quarters of an hour before she left.

    Ive always thought it odd that she was that late on the day she was abducted.
    Its hard call for me whether her abductor was among her social circle or a stranger.
    Being an attractive TV anchor person im sure she was the focus for many a slightly bent individuals fetid attention.Like any media personality they are a convenient blank screen to project anything on to.
    Im reminded of the 1978 attack on Spokane DJ (later to become a TV news personality herself) Shelly Monahan by serial Rapist Kevin Coe.
    She didnt know him but he sure knew her.

    We had a smilar case in the UK in 1998. A well known TV presenter, Jill Dando, was shot dead at point blank range on her doorstep. No motive was ever found, and it was suspected it was a stalker. Someone was convicted, but later acquited on appeal.

    My theories are the following two scenarios
    1) It was some one she knew. They had stayed over had a late night, and that is why she was late. When her boss rang, and she had to leave I think an arguement started (maybe because she was going to wor, not taking a sickie who knows). She eventually marche dout with her stuff, and her friend followed her, and in a "don't you walk away from me" type moment grabbed her as she unlocked her car (or perhaps before and she was trying to unlock her car in a panic), and she fell and was knocked unconcious.

    or
    2) It was a stranger. She went to her car at normal time, and was garbbed by a stalker who maybe dragged her back to her flat. If they were an obsessed stalker they might have wanted to see her home. She stayed there rather than keep struggling trying to talk the person round, trying to calm them, and when her boss called she just made an excuse rather than enraging the stalker by calling for help. Perhaps the staler then said he would let her go, and lied to her, and bundled her into a van outside, which is when a scream was heard.

    I am probably wrong, so who knows. I do think the fact she was so late was significant. I also think the fact she was only heard to scream once (is that correct), is significant. It says to me she was either rendered unconcious quickly, or someone managed to calm her down, or she was bundled into a vehicle quickly (but as there were drag marks I do not believe she was concious when put into the vehicle)

    Knowing the Midwest, and knowing small town-Midwest, and having been to Mason City... It wasn't a stranger. I can say that with 90% confidence. It was someone she knew.

    Sorry if this is old news. I have read a fair bit about the Huisentruit case over the years and I have never seen this info before.

    I was reading about another case in another forum here. One of the cases in the Unidentified Forum mentions the case of Renee Marie Williams of Missouri. Williams' remains have never been found, but she is presumed dead and her death was attributed to a man named Christopher E. Revak, age 36. Revak killed himself shortly after the arrest while in police custody. He is suspected to be a serial killer with ties to Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri. Anyway, police suspect him in other deaths, but have not said which cases.

    I googled his name and found the following. [Mods, please let me know if I am not supposed to post links.]

    http://crimesceneinvestigations.blog...1_archive.html

    On that page, it is mentioned that Revak's first wife lived in Mason City at some point.
    Then it mentions a connection to this case.

    Paraphrasing, on the night before her disappearance, Jodi Huisentruit went to 510 6th St. #2 in Mason City -- home of a friend John VanSice -- and watched a videotape. Apparently, at some point, Jennifer Beamish-Revak (Revak's first wife) lived in the other unit in this duplex. it is NOT confirmed whether she lived there in June 1995. however, if she did, is it possible that Huisentruit met Revak that night (outside or whatever)? He would have been about 23 years old in 1995. He was a good looking guy.

    I wonder whether police have investigated this possibility.

    Thank you for posting that! If true, it would certainly make sense of her possibly being taken back to her room or she may have even met the perp in the apartment or her room. I have always wondered if she was taken from the parking lot and forced in a car or if something more happened at that apartment complex...

    I also wonder if she had a man stay overnight and that is why she was running late. Then they had an argument and he either did something in the apartment and staged the scene at the car or followed her downstairs and really did do something beside the car. But my intuition is saying that this person was with her at the apartment.

    CoffeeLover,
    I agree, I think maybe everyone has been looking at this all wrong because lots of people feel she was taken by a stranger in the parking lot. But what if things actually took place in her apartment?
