One Iowa Lawmaker is trying to encourage Mason City leaders to declare June 27, 2015 "Jodi Huisentruit Day". A letter drafted by Rep. John Kooiker (Sioux) originally had 100% support from House leaders. That's not the case anymore. Read the full story here.

But what are you thoughts? Is this a good idea or not?

I find it hard to believe no one has ventured a reply or opinion on this and I believe I understand why. Both arguments, for and against, hold reasonable water here...While the day is intended to bring awareness to cold cases and missing persons besides Jodi', I also wonder if her sister JoAnn's opinion is crucial  in accepting that because Jodi wasn't a native of Mason City(or even Iowa), that the city is reluctant to use its resources in such an event. An event, I might add, made possible by their PD's failure in solving the case or finding Jodi to begin with... I wonder, also, how many people living in the Mason City area now would recognize this event or remember Jodi. I have a feeling that for many of us who want to be a part of this don't live close or are able to attend; for her family and close friends, attending such an event may just be another  painful reminder that this city was the last place Jodi was seen alive, and this is the place, the job, the city, that her killer frequented and got away with her abduction and murder....

Im sure no one wants to jinx the possibility of having a Jodi Huisentruit Day by replying to Josh's question in a negative or opposing fashion. But maybe an event such as this will be better welcomed by all when the truth of what happened to Jodi is finally found....

I've just seen this tragic story on the ID channel. Granted that it was made for TV. This being said, I'm sure it excluded many relevant facts and details concerning the case. The one attribute that stood out to me was the interview that immediately followed the news of Jodie's disappearance with "John". He spoke of Jodie in the past tense. In doing this it raised a towering red flag, to me as a casual viewer of these type programs. There wasn't additional data about "John" or what his role in the community and possible connection with law enforcement. As I watched his interview, it quickly became apparent, to me, that in some form or fashion, he was, without doubt, involved in the disappearance of Jodie. The story didn't offer a tremendous amount of information about this guy. What did he do for a living ? Was he married ? Is he still living ? ~ and many more that I'd like to know answers to. It did state that he was twenty years older than Jodie. Were there any drugs involved in the inner circle of the group that where considered her friends ?What about affairs ? Past arrest of any of these people at the time of the disappearance ? Arrest from the time of the disappearance until present ? The extent of the connection of public figures, police officers and politicians. One last item that needs a clarification. The call made to Jodie by the other news anchor ~ How many times had she called to wake her up ? Was this person involved in Jodie's inter circle ? What was Jodie's excuse for being late ? All of this is pertinent if this cold deliberately and tactfully esoteric case of murder is going to be solved and a evil murder unmasked. Vehement words, I realize, but nevertheless a fact. It's been twenty years. Now it's time to solve this case ! Dig in deep. Apply pressure where it needs to be applied. This will get results that are long overdue and put a murder or murders behind bars. Seek and Ye shall find ~

If the person responsible for the disappearance of Jodie reads this, do the right thing. Tell the truth. You will feel better. Get this off your chest. Turn yourself in !!!  Closure, to Jodie's family, is the most important thing. It's much more important than your feeling. Hell is waiting on you if your not already there.

  No, I think it is a bad idea.  When people analyze this case they usually say something like "I'm really confused about who she was".  I think that is because we don't say bad things about people after death, and we like to praise attractive people in our society.  She was such a cutie, and was loved by everyone.  I have flaws too, and I believe she may have grown into a great person later in life.  I think she was actually somewhat self-centered and I can't really think of anything she did for others or the community.  I really don't even think she was a good person to work for.  I know one thing, I will get slaughtered for stating the obvious.  I truly hope she was not associating with bad people that may have brought this on herself.  After you chastise me with a nasty reply, could someone tell me who the people are in this picture(especially the 2nd from the left)?  He is displaying Jodi's favorite beer.  She obviously didn't deserve what happened, and I would like to solve this for everyone that loved her.
