Hi there. This is my first time on the site and I read through all of the archived articles. Did anyone ever follow-up with the 13-year-old runaway who grew up and spilled what she "knew" about Jodi's alleged murder? What about the waitress who was murdered who talked to a man who was involved with Jodi's kidnapping? Did anyone follow-up to see if police followed-up on those tips?
I realized I made a mistake - I read the articles from most current to oldest. I read about the woman who was arrested and charged with false reporting - but what about the murdered waitress lead?
From what Gary mentioned, the waitress took down a partial licence plate number and wrote it down on a napkin. the family lost the napkin. It seems the waitress was worried because the person for the second time mentioned Jodi and it frightened her which was the reason she gave her family for taking down the plate number.
I don't think they ever found her murderer either.
Good morning everyone,
I will try to answer whatever questions I can. Most of the questions concern the murder of the waitress in Britt, Iowa. Brad Lee Erdahl was convicted of first degree murder in the death of 19 year old Jackie Folkerts. He was arrested on January 25th, 1999. I had various discussions with the family and law enforcement and mention was made about Jackie writing down the partial license number of a vehicle with Minnesota plates with a male driver at the restaurant. He apparently raised the suspicions of Jackie who wrote down what she could remember and to tell relatives of the event. I have never heard that Jackie's death was anyway connected to Jodi's but there are suspicions the driver of that vehicle might know something.
Cindy Sweeney was the person that claimed she witnessed the murder of Jodi Huisentruit. Law enforcement is quite confident that she was fabricating the story. I haven't heard anything about her for several years.
I know that the waitress from Britt, IA, was murdered by her friend's brother, who was convicted, but Britt, IA, was also the residence of another individual named as possibly being connected to Jodi's death. Is it possible that someone he knew was the man who talked to the waitress about her murder? Was the license plate the waitress wrote down ever recovered?
Someone out there has to know something that could help bring closure to Jodi's family and friends. I'm not sure there could be justice at this point. The perpetrator has been able to live his life, while Jodi's life was taken from her when she was so young.
doesn't anyone get concerned or raise an eyebrow, when you read about all these people somehow connected to the case and come forward with info, is either labled a druggie, drunk, or was either murdered orcommitted suicide, I live in a small community in southern mn not to far from MC and it scares me. I have been to this forum a few times and looked at the pictures on flickr and I don't know why I even or how I even got here. I do know that while I look at the pictures of the woods that are labled a park behind jodi's apt, I can envision a women running through the woods, leisure running. and she starts to get scared and un nerved and feels as though somone is watching her. she speeds up her running and doesn't ever go back. I have never envisioned anything before and this like I stated before scares me. I hope someone comes forward with something and not to the MC police. but goes higher up the chain.
