Wow, I had seen Walking Tall as a kid but never heard the rest of that story. With regard to Jennifer, I wonder if her folks got discouraged after dealing with this joker PI? And I wonder what substantive investigative efforts, if any, have taken place since then, via the PD or otherwise.
One thing, and again it's probably nothing, but I keep coming back to China's car being found close-maybe very close-to where Jennifer disappeared. Nineteen years is a long time, and it seems like a high traffic area, but one thing is for certain, the perp(s) in both of these cases knows that area. It seems an unlikely link, and I might not start there, but it's an angle to consider with what appears to be a lack of progress in both cases. Now that's coming from someone who is not in the loop, and not even from Nashville. And certainly, there may be non-public info that would preclude any such consideration. In any case, I hope the families of these girls can get some help with resolution.
