I remember Drew saying they didn’t know if the opd has the briefcase. That was before they got the files. I think that briefcase was probably left in her car Monday night. I think either the perp took it from her car or the cops have it. Her roommate up until November stated that she would sometimes leave it in the car. It sounded like the roommate thought she left it in the car but that’s just my interpretation. If her briefcase was stolen from the car does that lead us to motive? Could that be a sign it’s work related? Did someone take that briefcase because of something that was inside it? They’ve said the motive wasn’t a robbery.
As far as the purse goes, who knows if Jennifer was really carrying one. Was anything inside the purse when they found it? Did Jennifer reach in her overnight bag and just get a few things so she wouldn’t have to lug a purse around all Monday night. I have a lot of friends that don’t carry purses at night. They just grab cash, keys, and cell phone. That purse‘s photo was put on their website in April 2008. He made a comment on the guest book in March of 2011 saying the purse wasn’t recovered. In September 14 there is a guestbook post saying they found it in her overnight bag. It’s all very strange, but they do have that purse in the photo and we don’t know what the missing one looks like. It’s just an assumption that one is missing from what I can tell.
I‘ve been wondering lately if that outfit on the chair was for Tuesday. How certain are they it is the one from Monday? I remember them saying Jennifer wore a lot if neutrals and neutral clothes look very similar to each other. She had clothes on her bed. It was said that Jennifer would select her outfit the night before. Do the clothes on the bed indicate that she didn’t sleep in the bed?
Yes, the whereabouts of the briefcase could be important depending on what she used it for and could offer a different motive for her disappearance. The Kesses should have an answer by now as to whether or not it is actually missing unless that information was held back. It would surprise me if it was held back, but if it was, I would have a tendency to believe it was never found as opposed to sitting in an OPD storage locker. Keep in mind, though, that it was never officially listed as missing.
Mr. Kesse once said that he "thought" he put the briefcase in Jennifer's trunk when he cleaned her car during the Christmas holidays of 2005. He was under the impression at that time that she didn't use it much. He said he never knew Jennifer to store her shoes in it. The briefcase and the huge amount of discussion around it are simply strange. IDK
That brown purse is still showing as missing on Jennifer's website. I was there the other day. And they have admitted it was found in her luggage.
They are not certain at all at this point that the outfit on the back of the chair was what Jennifer wore on Monday. When Drew answered the "Q & A" questions, he said they didn't know what she wore to work that day. He was asked the question and he simply stated "no". Couldn't get any clearer than that, right?
Speaking only for myself, the clothes on the bed indicate to me that she didn't sleep in her bed. It was supposed to be work outfits like skirts and blazers, that kind of thing. When asked to do a recreation, someone piled folded clothes on the bottom corner of the bed. Those outfits should have been left there as they were found. No one should have touched them until LE photographed them a cleared the condo. No one should have been going through that condo and changing everything around, no one.
They said Jennifer's table was still set for Christmas. How do they know it was still set for Christmas? Maybe Jennifer set it when she came home expecting someone. Law enforcement should have seen that. Photos should have been taken. It doesn't make sense that Jennifer would have gone away and left her table set with her brother and his buddies coming to stay for a few days. She knew they were going to drink and party.
So much was destroyed. So much.
It's also been said she picked her clothes in the morning before leaving for work--so we can take our pick as to what we believe, I guess.
Here is what's missing according to the FBI:
Missing items: (1) Verizon cell phone, (1) Nextel cell phone, Kesse’s Florida driver’s license, iPod, Kesse’s keys, and purse.
Orlando, Florida January 24, 2006
We don't know what was found inside the purse found in Jennifer's luggage which was found in the entrance area of Jennifer's condo unit. We don't know if it was empty or not. That was never publicly clarified.
So what about her wallet, her credit cards? We they missing? Why does it list her driver's license separately like that?
That's exactly what I'd take with me if I was going out: a limited amount of cash; my driver's license for ID; and my house key. In my day, we didn't have cell phones.
The iPod. Not much was ever said about that. (Except that the serial number given was incorrect. It did get corrected). Would you have any thoughts on what she might have used that for? Could it have been in the briefcase?
