I don't think this case will be solved, nor Jennifer found, until EVERY bit of information is disclosed and examined without bias, until LE fully answers her family's questions, and until her family fully and unambiguously answers the questions put to them. For example: Why is it a secret (to us, anyway) when the call to Jennifer's boyfriend began and ended? Why is that information such as that kept from the general public? (I do understand that LE should maintain the integrity of an investigation, but after twelve years, maybe it's time to try something different.)
Start the investigation over, without ANY preconceived ideas about anyone remotely involved, including Jennifer. What does the evidence say? Let the story tell itself. Why anyone feels the need at this point to "protect" Jennifer from whatever the evidence might say is simply beyond my scope of understanding. And I don't think Jennifer was cheating on her boyfriend--but so what if she was? The only reason it would matter is if it had a direct bearing on her disappearance.
I should probably stop there. But I don't understand the reluctance to share any and all information, especially twelve years later! EVERYONE in Jennifer's life should be reexamined, even if the Kesses think someone they know just could not have harmed Jennifer.
Because someone did harm her, and it could be anyone.
In my mind, this was a night time abduction--the phones being disabled between 10:20 and 10:40 the night before Jennifer was reported missing pretty clearly show that. Especially if Jennifer ALWAYS used her phone as an alarm clock, as has been stated. Something happened that night to prevent her using her phone for an alarm, since her phone was shut down.
It has also been stated that Jennifer ALWAYS took showers before work in the morning, so she must have been abducted getting ready for work on that Tuesday morning, since the shower was damp when the family got into her apartment that afternoon.
Why is one ALWAYS (the shower) believed to be true, and not the other (the phones)? Especially if the phone pings information from that Monday night is correct. Common sense should lead us to believe whatever happened, happened that Monday night after she talked to her boyfriend.
Comments about the apartment, and how maybe things weren't how Jennifer usually had them. Well, she had just returned from a trip. Her makeup could have been out and not in its usual spot because she was unpacking and setting things out to put away later. Same for the blow dryer, and other items that seemed to be in places they were not usually kept. She obviously had not finished unpacking completely if there were still items in her bag.
Someone upthread (sorry, cannot remember who) said s\he thought someone Jennifer knew (friend, coworker, etc.) came to her door, with a reasonable request or problem that s\he needed Jennifer's help with. Jennifer probably wouldn't have felt the need to do a "safe call" because she was with someone she knew. I tend to agree with this.
Start investigating with a clean slate, no preconceived ideas about what someone certainly would or would not do, and as I said before, let the evidence tell the story. Because I think it will if given the chance without the chains of supposition holding it back.
As does any missing person and the families impacted so terribly by the unknown, Jennifer deserves to be found, and her family deserve answers and justice.
I agree with you. Family members' comments about what Jennifer would or wouldn't do are not evidence and should be ignored. The family members weren't living with Jennifer in her apartment; they don't really know what she might have done or might not have done; they're speculating. Sticking to the actual evidence will solve the case.
