Capoly: I'll have LE/ME check them out!!! I'm sending them emails....
I really hope Jaisle just ran off with someone that she fell in love with and they're living heavenly ever after... Not sure why she wouldn't contact her family, though!! Unless, it was someone that she knew they wouldn't approve of, nevertheless, I'm praying for all of them to receive a happy ending to this tragic case!Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.

Just thinking about Jaisle today and how little information is available about her. Her case is earily similar to Jill Edmonds who also disapeared on a bridge outside of Richmond.
Car recovered January 25th, 2010 on a bridge over the James River. Single/divorced, no children. Bank teller.
-No substantial reason to suspect suicide other than the circumstances surrounding her disappearance.
Remains found in the James River in Charles City County."Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less." - Marie Curie

Hi all, I'm just going to put up links to these two threads, from the Randy Allen Taylor and Alexis Murphy case thread.
Many of us delved deep into the background of RAT and the results leave open many possibilities. One of the threads was about possible victims of RAT. We also discussed the possibility that at some point in time that he may have crossed paths or even known Richard Evonitz.

I just came across Jaisle's case. I live close to the Willey bridge, so it's had me thinking. For starters people jump off bridges in Richmond, especially around that time period. Perhaps the idea spread. Jill had been described by some as not being suicidal, but then it came out she was on medication for depression and struggled with it. Jill's body was found months later 30 miles away in the water and likely was badly beaten up by that long in decomp and being dragged. I recall when Stacy Peterson's body was found people theorized she had been decapitated, but the current can do cruel things. That is a long way to travel though. Coroner's report was death by drowning. I'm inclined to think that was a suicide.
Jaisle very well could have been a suicide also. It is strange her remains haven't surfaced by now though. She could have had car trouble and perhaps someone picked her up. Maybe she staged a disappearance and had someone to pick her up? I never heard anything about the condition of her car when found other than it was locked, and she took her keys. Although it you're on the fence about jumping perhaps you take your keys just in case you change your mind. It's a pretty area with a dam in the distance and shoulders to pull over. According to wikipedia the water is fairly shallow there. I read in an article a witness saw her walking away from the car but no other witnesses. It's a beautiful smooth, fairly level S shaped bridge. Not a bridge you'd freeze up on while driving and need to stop.
According to the Charley project
http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...as_jaisle.html her family believes she was kidnapped by young kids jealous of her? I can't find any background on this. Family unable to accept suicide or was she having problems with people at school?
In 2013 Mark Anthony Christian's vehicle was found abandoned on the same bridge at 6:00AM. No sign he jumped. He has not been found either. I don't remember this even getting attention locally other finding a post here or there:
