2015 Age 33
January 24, 2016 marked 10 years since Jennifer Kesse went missing from her home at an Orlando, Florida condominium.
The 24 year-old is believed to have prepared to go to work on the morning of January 24, 2006 and subsequently vanished. The only major clue? A grainy video of a person of interest parking and leaving Kesse's car in a neighboring parking lot. Sadly, the security footage of the POI does not capture his face. This has remained the most frustrating of leads.
The Kesse disappearance was one of my first posts on this blog. Please visit it for more detailed information on the case and to watch the 3-part Greta Van Susteren Investigates episode special from June 26, 2014.
Kesse's family has continued their tireless quest for information on the whereabouts of their beloved daughter and sister. Please visit the family's site, http://jenniferkesse.com/. It includes a 10th anniversary letter addressed to Jennifer, in which the family declares they will never give up looking for her and that, "Failure is not an option."
On Friday, January 22, 2016, Kesse's parents joined police at a press conference. It is featured in this Orlando Sentinel article with video.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, police continue to investigate leads. Most importantly, evidence from Jennifer Kesse's car is being resubmitted to FDLE for (re)testing. Perhaps advancements in forensic testing will glean new clues in this case.
David Lohr, a true crime writer and journalist (who writes for The Huffington Post) has a video on his Youtube Channel with enhanced footage of the person of interest in the Kesse case. The video also has images of Kesse's car and the parking lot where it was left on the day of her disappearance.
At the time of her disappearance, there were extensive renovations occurring at Jennifer Kesse's condominium complex. Some of these transient construction workers were even allowed to live in the empty apartments. There may have been a large number of people working and living in the complex who spoke predominantly Spanish. Below is the Spanish-language flyer the Kesse family features on their website.
