    #FindJodi

    19 years ago today TV Anchor Jodi Huisentruit went missing in Mason City on her way to work.

    May we someday find answers to this mystery.

    A site set up by a a couple former co-workers of mine: www.findjodi.com

    Re: #FindJodi

    It is crazy to me that we can't solve mysteries like this. Hopefully they can figure something out.

    my little town had a string of murders back in the 70s that went unsolved. Creepy to think about given there is a decent chance the killer is still around town.

    If the killer has no easily identified connection to the victim, its actually statistically much harder for the police to catch someone than people would believe based on CSI type shows. I doubt there is ever a result to this case, much like i doubt we ever find out who killed the realtor out in wdm a few years ago.

    i know, and I think our law enforcement does a fine job.

    it is just a tough pill to swallow that people can actually commit murder in small-town Iowa and get away with it.

    Re: #FindJodi

    There's a pretty interesting book written by some news anchor about the case. Not especially well written, but interesting.

    I think the older guy who had a thing for her had something to do with it.

    As far as the realtor goes, I'm guessing that the guy that committed suicide a few months after it was probably the guy that did it. And I'll say this, I don't know that the WDM police are any real great catches. There seem to be lots of unsolved cases and lots of issues with them. Let's put it this way, if I was trying to get away with something, WDM wouldn't be a bad place to be.

    Re: #FindJodi

    The fact that it has been 19 years and she never turned up, dead or alive, makes me kind of wonder if she is still alive somewhere (abducted ala Elizabeth Smart.) Though, even if that were to be the case, I still don't think she will ever be found at this point.

    Re: #FindJodi

    A message board I posted on a lot before here had a poster on it that was very familiar with the story. He use to have beers with the main suspect in the murder. The cops could never tie the suspect to the bar the night she was last seen until he talked to them in the last year. I have met the poster in real life and I believe all of it. He goes by the handle of SFHAWKEYES on the rivals network. I know I didn't tell the details well, and would love for him to stop by and tell it. I will look through my emails and see if I have a have his contact

    Re: #FindJodi

    I'm from there and remember this (obviously). If I remember right, there were some kind of implications with the police chief or someone high up either covering stuff up or being tied in with it. I can't remember exactly, but it wouldn't surprise me as Mason City cops are about as awful as they come.

    Re: #FindJodi

    One of the Mason City cops killed her. That's why she was never found.

    I think a lot pf times they have a good idea who did it, but they might not have a good enough case.

    Yeah, that popped up just a few years ago. The officer who made those allegations is no longer with the Mason City PD.
