My Thoughts on the Disappearance of Jennifer Kesse

My Thoughts on Jennifer Kesse’s Disappearance…

I honestly don’t know where to begin in this case. Sure, I could tell you that investigators seem to have the same avenues of investigation I would cover already in their sights with the construction crew and her coworkers. There is the security footage that shows an individual who is dressed like a construction worker parking her vehicle and walking away.
It is reported as being this individual might just be the luckiest person of interest ever. Those closest to the investigation are certain that is a man and I will go on record given what I have seen of the tape that I believe that it is a male. I will give my support to the avenues of that it might be a coworker or a construction worker on her apartment complex that are responsible for her disappearance and if that will be the end result someday, I will not be surprised.
Still I cannot help wonder about other avenues of possibility given my exposure to this case. One that immediately jumped to mind would be that rather than a coworker at the result but a guest. The resort would host hundreds of individuals on frequent rotation. Perhaps one of them took a more than acceptable liking to Jennifer and followed her home one night. Which I will offer in support of the fact that her vehicle was not parked on her own lot when the individual was spotted on camera.
Another avenue that came to mind given the limited public information available in this case would be that of course coworkers and construction works would jump to mind given the available facts. Still I would take it a step further given the available information, what about the guests at the resort in which Jennifer was employed? Are they not above suspicion?
Perhaps this avenue was pursued by investigators have looked into this but it doesn’t seem to be a stretch of the imagination that one may have followed Jennifer home to her apartment. Maybe they confronted her outside and when she turned them away things got out of hand or an abduction was their plan from the start.
I would support my thought in that her vehicle was not returned to the apartment complex in which she lived but a nearby one. This may suggest that the suspect was not familiar with the area and couldn’t figure out where to return Jennifer’s vehicle to and parked it where they thought was the correct location or simply gave up when they couldn’t figure it out and left it.
Of course, this may apply to her coworkers at the resort also and I’ve read reports that one was looked at in the ongoing investigation. But with the limited amount of information publicly available and possibly at all for investigators to go on given what I have read about this case. I do think there is a chance in that multiple offenders were involved with the fact that nobody apparently her a scream or a disturbance which would suggest Jennifer was overwhelmed or subdued quickly.
In reading various opinions on this case across the internet, one theory did strike me as very possible in regards to location of a body if and I’d like to make my optimism clear in that I hope Jennifer is alive but if she is indeed deceased and given the amounts of construction going on in the immediate area. Then is it all possible that the lack of a body could be explained in that if the construction workers were indeed responsible then they could have buried her under one of the construction sites. If that were not the case then although I think something would have been found by now then a nearby body of water may have been used although I feel this to be unlikely.
Perhaps not all of the construction workers were involved, maybe it was a select few or just a lone suspect. Especially since a lone operator is seen exiting Jennifer’s vehicle on camera after parking it. Maybe they used their own garbage disposal service to help make Jennifer’s body and belongings she carried disappear with a simple phone call.
But this is just a theory and speculation doesn’t amount to evidence to any degree. In recent years some suggest that Jennifer may have fallen victim to Human Trafficking which investigators cannot find any evidence to dispute but none to support it also. Only that there was a ring operating in the Orlando area at the time of her disappearance.
If you know something, anything that you believe can help, contact the relevant law enforcement agency and provide her family with the answers they seek.

The Case of Jennifer Kesse

Jennifer, Disappeared…

I can’t personally say that I’ve been to Orlando, Florida. But I’ve only heard good things about it. From Disneyworld to the Orlando Magic in their day with multiple great NBA Players as a basketball fan myself. But like any major city it isn’t immune to crime and on January 24th, 2006. A young woman by the name of Jennifer Kesse, originally from Tampa, disappeared after she had left work for the day.
Jennifer would be last seen on January 23rd at around 6pm at Westgate Resorts in Ocoee, Florida. In the following hours she would make several calls to friends and family, with the last being to her boyfriend at around 10pm. What happened after that, is as good as anybody’s guess. Come the next morning, the first signs that something wasn’t right would arise.
Come the morning of the 24th of January 2006, Jennifer would not send out a single message or call anyone she knew. She was known to contact her boyfriend every morning to wish him a good day as many couples do. After failing to arrive at work at the normal time, efforts to reach Jennifer proved to be fruitless and with good reason her friends and family began to worry.
Her Employer would reach out to her parents who would journey from hours away to begin the search for their missing daughter. When her parents arrived at her home, her vehicle was gone. Yet inside her condo they could not find anything that seemed out of place. All signs appeared as if she completed her morning routine and left for work.
As soon as that evening her friends and family began passing out Missing Persons fliers and with the help of the local Police Department, the search for Jennifer was underway. Air, Land and Sea, no resource was spared in trying to find the young lady. Everyone knew that if she was not going to show up to work at the very least, she would have given some kind of notice or explanation to cover her bases.
Still the search parties proved fruitless and no sign of Jennifer would be found. Given the available evidence of clothes scattered on her unmade bed and pajamas on the bathroom floor coupled with make-up and other grooming products on the counter. Her parents would urge the Condo Manager to use a set of extra keys to open her residence and that’s when they found her belongings scattered around.
To many it appeared that she had completed her morning routine and left for work but from there, the trail went cold. Jennifer’s parents would theorize that she may have had an argument with her boyfriend and would return soon, something thing that is common in missing persons cases. But she never came back and her friends and family would begin to use this condo as a base of operations over the following months.
After the first few days and the initial media coverage on Thursday, 26, 2006, the tenant of a nearby apartment complex who had been watching the recent news coverage of the story took notice a vehicle that matched the description of Jennifer’s and informed law enforcement of the vehicle. Unmoved after several days, investigators arrived and quickly photographed the vehicle before taking it for more thorough forensic testing.
However, the vehicle, a 2004 Black Chevy Malibu, would not be all that the investigators would find. During the neighborhood canvas, they would happen upon footage on a security camera of somebody parking Jennifer’s car and walking away from it without looking back. From there on out the trail would go cold. This would be the strongest lead that the investigators would have. Even with the help of NASA to enhance the footage, this person remains unidentified.
All that can be surmised in this case is that Jennifer left her apartment for work, locking the door on her way out and was abducted either while walking to her car or as she entered her car given the lack of evidence suggesting someone had broken into her apartment. A person of interest who returned her vehicle to her local area is all that investigators have to go on in this case.
It is worth noting that at the time of Jennifer’s disappearance her apartment complex was undergoing extensive construction and expansion operations at the time of her disappearance. Many of the crew members were undocumented at the time and as a result have been hard to track down since the time of her disappearance. Still at the time many of those workers were allowed to live in the complex while it was being constructed and have since raised the eyebrows of investigators considering that the figure spotted in the surveillance tapes is dressed like a construction worker.
Jennifer had told her family and friends that she had been experiencing harassment from the construction workers in the lead up to her disappearance. Authorities efforts to identify and interrogate the workers at the complex failed to generate any new leads. Failure in this area of her life would lead investigators to focus on her professional life and in there a new lead would arise.
Upon searching Jennifer’s computer, it would come to light that a co-worker who was in a management position at the resort that she was employed at had been making attempts to pursue a relationship. She had told those close to her that she was against workplace relationships, still after extensive questioning and investigation, they would conclude that this individual would not arise to the level of suspect. They would note that there is a slight chance that she had become a victim of human trafficking but it would be highly unlikely.
In 2007, her employer, lead by founder David A. Siegel would offer a million-dollar reward for information leading to her being found alive. Unclaimed to this day, another reward of five thousand dollars would be offered by the Central Florida Crime line for information leading to Jennifer’s remains being found.
However as of June 10th, 2010 the FBI has taken the lead in this ongoing investigation and if you feel as if you have information relevant to this case, please contact your local office. You may discount your assistance as being minimal but even the smallest detail may lead to a resolution in this case…

The Flight of Mr Fisher

Scottsdale, Arizona – April 10, 2001

In a prominent suburb of the sunny metropolis that is Phoenix, the state capital of Arizona and the fifth most populous city nationwide. What one might see as the perfect family life turned into a suburban nightmare. A mother and her children in the one place that they should feel the most safe – Their home.

When Firefighters responded to the scene of what was reported as being a natural gas fire at the home of Robert William Fisher and his wife Mary. The fire had exploded with incredible ferocity and torn through the home at 2000 N 74th Place at almost 9AM. How could one prepare themselves for what they would find, I will never understand.

The explosion was so power that the brick structure of the home had collapsed and much of the home now lay in ruins. The surrounding homes in the neighborhood had their frames rattled as a result. But fortunately the firefighters managed to contain the blaze to the Fisher residence.

While there was little or nothing left of the home, neighbors were reporting that there was a possibility that the family was in the home which drew the attention of the local police. The Detectives who responded would find three bodies in what remained of the residence.

One detective would note that despite not being an expert in fire aspect of this case, in most cases someone would have woken and tried to escape the scene. With no evidence of any attempt, it already started to look as if a triple homicide had occurred. The children, Brittney who was 12 and Bobby Jr only 10 were found in their beds. Their throats cut so deeply that the vertebrae of Spine had been damaged.

Their Mother not only had her throat slashed in a similar manner but had also suffered a gunshot to the head. It is believed Robert Sr, then poured a liquid accelerant around the home before lighting a lone candle. He tampered with the gas line to the furnace in order to create a leak which would then eventually fall upon the candle creating the explosion that drew the attention of the authorities.

After it was confirmed his body was no where to be found amongst the remnants of the family home he was estimated to have gained a ten hour head start in his escape from the scene of his crimes. Spotted at a nearby gas station refilling his wife’s truck and withdrawing money before dropping from sight completely.

Still to this day, the only suspect in this case – it is believed he drove the vehicle north into the mountains where it would later be found abandoned. The Toyota 4Runner was found abandoned in the Ponderosa Pine Forest on the 20th of April 2001. However an extensive search of the surrounding area turned up no trace of Robert. A witness did report that they thought saw him walking northwards towards Highway 260.

The family dog was also found waiting by the vehicle, suggesting whatever means he took out of the area prevented the dog from following him. Perhaps he was driven out of the area, perhaps he fled into the woods – nobody knows.

The speculated motive for this tragedy is believed that Mary had threatened to divorce Robert and after experiencing his own parents divorce, Robert had told close friends that he would never let his own children experience what he had. The Investigators would learn during their enquiries that the marriage was anything but happy as they could be continually heard arguing and Mary berating her husband.

“I could have done better than you”, “You’re worthless or “We should get a divorce” were just some of the things the neighbors would overhear. Clearly the picture of an unhappy marriage. Still they only ever heard Mary yelling out such thoughts rather than Robert. Although they knew he had a rather stoic demeanor, Mary would always be the one they heard crying out.

Family footage however would indicate that Robert was the ultimate controlling personality. Various family videos give credence to such a claim. This coupled with his desire to protect his children from a divorce are believed to be the driving force behind such a heinous act. Some believe it was him snapping and wanting to stick it to his wife in anyway he could.

Since then only speculation and conjecture is all we have as to the fate of the Federal Bureau of Investigations Most Wanted Fugitive. In years past, there have been a variety of different tips and avenues of investigation in this case. From an individual who bore a strong resemblance to Robert Fisher being apprehended to raids of homes believing to house the suspect turning up empty.

Avid outdoorsman suggest that if he did seek refuge in the extensive cave system in the Northern Arizona area, he may have either used them to avoid the initial searches, commit suicide or have died due to low oxygen levels. But to this day no remains have been found.

All we have are possible sightings and theories as to where Mr Fisher is now. In Years passed the FBI has released age-progression photos of him to reflect what he may look like today still to no avail. This case has been featured in various Television Programs and News Broadcasts but there has been no arrest.

In 2014, Law Enforcement raided a home in Colorado after receiving a tip that Fisher was hiding there. Still after arresting two individuals, they were unable locate any trace of the FBI’s most wanted man.

One should be aware that he is likely to be armed and dangerous given that he has prior military training and is an avid outdoorsman. Fisher also has ties to New Mexico and Florida. Profilers suggest that he would exhibit the personality of someone that thinks they know everything and that of a loner. He may walk with a oddly erect manner due to a back injury that would cause him to extend his chest.

This case is still actively worked by the FBI and the local Arizona departments. Therefore hope for a resolution in this case exists for the other members of both Robert and Mary’s families. Perhaps one day we will see a final resolution in this matter and Robert will finally stand accountable for his actions…

Fear the Night No Longer

“Fear The Night No Longer”

April 25th, 2018 – Approximately 50 women and the 12 families of the murder victims got the resolution they had waited four decades to see. The East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker/Golden State Killer has been identified. When I first started writing this I had another list of theories as to whom the offender was and where we might find him. But to my relief, they are all irrelevant now.

So now I am writing my thoughts on the end of this case. Selfishly, I’m almost sad to see it end. I’ve always loved a good mystery and this has captivated my interest since I was 18 years old. Now I’m 29 and excited to see what it is going to happen in the coming weeks and months. Maybe many of our questions over the years will finally be answered.

Hopefully for the first time in over forty years the victims can no longer have any fear of the night. They can know without hesitation that Joseph James DeAngelo will not be climbing through their windows tonight. You are safe from harm. Now all your questions have the potential answers that you have sought over all this time.

Personally, I want to know how he selected each victim. I have often wondered if they trace back to the Visalia Ransacker’s attack on Beth Snelling. An attack in which that her father, Claude Snelling, lost his life in trying to protect his daughter from this evil and deranged man. Could she have been the focus of his rage all these years?

There are so many questions about this case that remain unanswered. Perhaps we will see them answered in the coming weeks and months. However their remains one debate in my mind that I cannot escape. If there were ever a case that deserved the death penalty in my mind, this is it.

Still there remains a lingering issue on my mind. Many serial offenders never agree to cooperate until they have no control left over whatever sick game they are playing in their twisted minds. A willingness to waive the death penalty in exchange for a full confession of his entire story that can shed light on 50 rapes and 12 homicides may be too strong of an opportunity to simply let slide.

Do we say no and send him to death row where you won’t get an argument from me to the contrary? Perhaps. However there may still be cases out there that we still don’t know about and the explanation as to how he was so successful in evading capture all this time may prove as valuable experience to law enforcement to help arrest future offenders. I’m not saying that we should dismiss the death penalty, but at 72 years of age, he may not live long enough to see such a sentence carried out.

If we can get this smug, arrogant psychopath to confess by offering him an alternative that can yield our society a variety of benefits, I would offer that it is at least worth consideration. I also watched his arraignment this afternoon and if you look at how old and frail he looks, putting him on death row isn’t going to yield the results one would want.

By the time the State would get around to executing him, he would have likely met his maker through some health related cause. While I agree if there was ever a case that could warrant the death penalty, I won’t try and convince those who feel strongly towards it to dispel such a notion. But I feel there is much to be learned from him if he cooperates and if that is what it takes to accomplish this goal it may just be worthwhile.

The precedents that could be developed from this case could change the face of criminal investigations into serial offenders going forward could pay bigger dividends than executing this suspect ever could. After fifty known attacks as “The East Area Rapist” and twelve known murders as “The Original Night Stalker”, his ability to avoid detection until the luck of a Genealogy website provided the connection needed to finally put this matter to rest.

Insights into his mindset could also help apprehend other sexual predators such as the serial rapist that has struck in Utah and Wyoming in recent years. Like Ted Bundy giving insight into the mindset of the Green River Killer, insight that turned out to be accurate when Gary Ridgeway was finally arrested years later.

Whether DeAngelo is of the same make as a Ted Bundy in that the nature of their predatory psychopathy, remains to be seen. Maybe after years in jail or upon Death Row, he will decide to cooperate with those who dedicated their lives to hunting him down and bringing him to face long overdue justice.

Overdue in that his rape victims have long passed their statute of limitations. Still DNA will never let them be forgotten and now in all irony, a man who was apparently insecure about having a small penis will have it on display for the whole world to see courtesy of the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office.

The Sacramento Bee reported recently that not only must the suspect provide DNA Samples to investigators, but also photography of his genitals to help the prosecutions case. You can call me insensitive all you want and I cant disagree with that but I will always enjoy the irony that a man so insecure about the size of his penis chose to become a rapist and as a result, the whole world now knows that Joseph James DeAngelo has a small penis.

As a result, the 50 rape victims and those affected by these attacks plus the families of the 12 murder victims can find solace in his humiliation in that they need Fear The Night No Longer.

I almost thought this was click bait or a hoax…

If this is legitimate and pans out that he is the Golden State Killer/Original Night Stalker/East Area Rapist…

Some Food for Thought…

I know I’ve suggested the similarities before, It’s still a stretch to be sure…
