I think you have a point. That may be staging. I wear glasses and I have extremely bad eyesight. Mine is so bad that I even put my glasses on when I get up during the night. I would expect the glasses to be buy her contacts case or either with her. Do people that wear contacts carry their glasses with them just in case something happens with their contacts during the day?
BBM Ohhh, I hadn't thought of that. You know, I think I did when I first started wearing them--but once I got really used to them and came to trust them, I didn't bother anymore.
I wouldn't be surprised to find that Jennifer practiced this--maybe even having a spare pair of glasses she always carried.
Now that you got me thinking about this, I think what I did was carry my contact case with me with fresh solution in it. (I actually had a couple of spare contact cases). I had a mirror that I laid flat on the bathroom vanity. I would set my contact case on top of it; balance one on the end of my finger; and plop it in while looking down. If it fell off my finger before reaching my eye, it would land on the mirror and be easy to find. (Usually).
But that's actually where I kept my glasses when I left for work--somewhere near the mirror and my empty contact case.
I put my glasses on as soon as I woke up, but I'm a coffee drinker and that's my first stop.
I always found when I first removed my contacts after work my vision was especially bad until my eyes adjusted. And it's no fun to try to blindly hunt up your glasses once your contacts are out. Most people really keep all that stuff together to be sure where everything is.
LOL This has been a memory refresher.
Great point, as always.
Now I have to apologize for my digression and think about how this "refreshed" thinking would apply to Jenn. If Mrs. Kesse did find Jennifer's glasses on her bedside table, it is--at least for me--a tiny indication that Jennifer was in bed for the night when she talked to Rob. Possibly right after she said good night and hung up the phone, she removed her glasses and set them exactly where her mother found them.
What would make her get up and go into the bathroom to put her contacts in without touching her glasses? Nothing. But another possible scenario is that her contacts aren't missing--maybe just in another contact case that no one thought to check?
Something else that's coming to my mind right now is the rape button that was beside her bed. Supposedly it was checked and found to be in working order, but was never pressed.
Gosh, I don't know. All my theories just loop around.
Did her drivers license have her current address?
If it didn't, we can pretty much rule out a random abduction off site of the condo. The dog tracked him back to her building so he knew where she lived.
BBM - this is really interesting. I hadn't even contemplated this.
I believe conscientious Jennifer would attend to all details of this type in a timely manner; however, with only having lived in her condo for two measly months--this would be something worth checking.
Regarding Bo the tracking hound--I have thus far always regarded it as an indication of stalking. But the other day, something occurred to me: If we think about Jennifer--on the spur-of-the-moment running down to her car to bring up the DVD player--suddenly encountering one or two young adult males loitering around her complex parking lot checking out vehicles to see what they could steal. Now suppose they lived near the Hunnington-on-the-Green complex or hung out with friends there, but a couple of times a week would cruise down to the Mosiac complex on foot to check out vehicles.
Maybe the dog could track him or them for that reason?
The problem I see here, though, is how could they have so successfully hidden her remains? They might have gotten lucky--with his or their luck holding even the next day at high noon as the car was dropped; and continuing for 12 years--but the odds have to be against it.
