Several years ago when Josh and I started this story of the abduction of Jodi Huisentruit we decided that any information that we found would be available to Law Enforcement. From the very beginning it was our way to make sure that the information we obtained from persons we interviewed would not sit dormant on one of our computers. There were numerous times that we shared this information with MCPD through at least four or five investigators from the department.
There are thousands of documents that pertain to the case that we have obtained through interviews of witnesses and public documents. Most recently all of this material (with a few exceptions because of promised privacy and confidentiality) was hand delivered to the MCPD approximately one month ago. I left all this material with the current investigator on the case and he was told he could copy whatever he would like to.
This was done with the hope that there would be something in the files that could help in the investigation of Jodi Huisentruit. I don't know how much was copied by MCPD. I have also made the offer to give authorities a copy of the DVD that Josh and I are currently copying all the Huisentruit Files.
There is the possibility that there is something that will be of help. Perhaps the information we have gathered is useless and doesn't deserve follow up. We won't know that until we try.
Gary I completely agree you and Josh have been working hard to follow up and support the police effort but what have they promised in return?. Have they allowed you access to the files? We speculate and could be totally off base. Some information could be shared we are looking for the same outcome.
In reality what are we asking for? A little cooperation on a 15 years old case with no immediate hope of a conclusion. We understand about certain limitations but we kick around ideas hoping that it helps, we could help more with a little direction. You don't want us to use names we won't use names we could use buzz words but we need to know we are doing more than throwing ideas hoping it sticks to the wall. I would bet on any given day we try to do more than they are 15 years after the fact.
I wonder if anything good came from this? Most likely not because the case sits in limbo.
From where I sit it appears any information given to the MCPD appears to vanish into a big black hole never to see the light of day again.
The MCPD are most likely thoroughly decent and well meaning people but 15 years on and to be at the same stage of the investigation as they were in 1995 is a worry.
I have not been on here much lately, but am now beginning my case study on Jodi's disappearance. The purpose of my case study is to analyze her past history that may offer insight into the possible suspects who may have abducted her. I have recently contacted Lt. Stearns to make him aware of my study and he replied he would not be able to assist me with any information as this is "an ongoing investigation". I fully respect his statement, and am willing to listen to anyone's comments or suggestions related to the case. Any information (and the person that provides me information) will be kept confidential from the public. However, any case information that may be relevant to the police investigation will be shared directly with Lt. Stearns. Feel free to write me at any time. Thank you for everyone's interest in the case and active participation on this website.
I appreciate your study of the case, but for Stearns to say he will not share any information with you because it's an "ongoing case" is obscene, to say the least. This case has sat idle for nearly 16 years. LE needs to share its files with the public so the person who is responsible for Jodi's disappearnce is brought to justice. At some point, this person, if he hasn't already, is going to die and avoid earthly justice. That would be a damn shame. Time for LE to stop being Keystone Cops and acknowledge this investigation needs as much help it can get.
There should be some kind of statute of limitations on how long an abduction/murder can be declared an active investigation by a police department.
After almost 16 years of enquiry and with the case still stuck on first base, one would think it was time for some fresh eyes like a cold case squad.
