Jennifer Kesse Still Missing, Video Tape Released by Police

16 months into the investigation into the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse, Orlando police Kesse_Drewhave released a video tape of what they say is a suspect in the case. The supposed break in this case is more or less information that has been present for quite some time. However, now the police have agreed to make public this information and let the general public see the video.


The problem is, they lack a clear photo, a name and cannot say for sure whether it is a man or a woman.

But after months of debate between Kesse’s parents and detectives — and solid leads exhausted — police decided Thursday to release a grainy, out-of-focus, wide-angle surveillance-camera video showing a person who parked Kesse’s car at a south Orlando condominium complex. The suspect, estimated to be 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 5 inches tall, then was recorded walking away by another security camera about noon Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2006. (Sun Sentinel)

Jennifer Kesse: Still Missing Without a Trace

A week ago the Orlando police released that grainy video to the public. The video shows someone parking Kesse’s car in a condominium lot near her home on the day she disappeared.

Police say they didn’t release the video earlier because they were hoping to use it to check the story of any suspects. Sgt. Barbara Jones of the Orlando Police Department told ABC News that the video was held back “as an investigative tool to be able to lock a suspect into the story,” but added that “its release could generate more leads, significant leads which may break the case.”

Police hope that, despite the rough quality of the video, it might jog someone’s memory about seeing that person that night. Kesse, at 5 feet 8 inches, is at least four inches taller than the person on the video. She has sandy blond shoulder-length hair and green eyes and weighs 125 pounds. But the past week has yet to yield results. (ABC News)

On The Record interview with Drew & Joyce Kesse, transcript from “On the Record ,” May 17, 2007

DREW KESSE: I think they’re father ahead. Are we close? No, I don’t think we’re close. There’s a lot still just very unknown. You know, a lot of times, the word vanishment (ph) comes up. I have to be honest with you. But leads are still being called in every day. It’s an amazing thing that, you know, 15-and-a-half months, we still get leads. We have a personal lead phone. Just last week, there were seven leads on that phone alone that came to us. So the community is very aware, and actually, the United States is very aware. And the calls come in, they just have not been the proper call.

  2. To Dana and all the Monkeys,
    I would like to thank you for your continued support of Jennifer Kesse! 7/24/07 will mark to the day 1 1/2 years since Jennifer was Abducted from in or around her Orlando condo. We love her and miss her and will never stop looking for her until we find her! Tips still contiue to come in on a daily basis and it is because people like yourselves and what you do for total strangers that will ultimately find her. My family and my self thank you.

    Next Tuesday 7/24/07 the FDLE is conducting a press conference we were asked to attend at the Wakulla Correctional Facility in Crawfordville, Fl just outside of the state capital. The FDLE has made 87,000 decks of playing cards with cold cases printed on them and will distribute them troughout the state’s prison system. They asked if Jennifer could be featured at the press conference which we are grateful for. Think 87,000 + inmates will see faces and histories on 104 cold cases in Florida – there will be closure for some I’m sure.
