In regard to the palm Print does anyone know if people were tested who were known to suspects or acquaintances or worked for possible suspects who could have left their palm print.? This would include people who knew any people connected to drug activity at the time.
I also agree with one poster who feels that all information should be released on the case. I personally don't believe the police are actively working on this case based on what they have. This will be solved from something coming out of left field, by accident, or someone who knows something and just can't live with themselves any longer.
Maybe they should turn the investigation over to a cold case unit, or retired police officers who will give one big push again.
Thank God for Josh and Gary for having this website and keeping Jodi's abduction in the public interest.
The palm print was taken from the car and as I understand it there was blood present in the palm print. Corescadden's palm print was compared and it wasn't a match. At the time that I interviewed Lt. Vandeweerd of MCPD I asked him if it was possible it was Jodi's print and he said that was a possibility. It seems as though they would have an over abundance of prints belonging to Jodi that should have narrowed it down to her. The lack of a match with Corescadden and apparently Jodi puts someone else into the picture.
As for turning over all the information, MCPD will tell you that it is still an open case and they can't give out all the information they have.
We keep working, and trying to talk to anyone who might have information.
Gary, I agree the police should have been able to find many palm prints of Jodi inside the car to either confirm or rule her out as the source. Which leads me to wonder how thorough they were. As far as I understand they still had not spoken to Ms. Goode.
Did they ever request an FBI profile of who could have been involved.
There are other questions I have but I'll save them for later.
Thanks for your response.
Is the palm print recorded in the CAPFIS database?
Was it determined what the size of the person was who left the palm print in question?
The only one I know that had a palm print taken was Tom Corascadden and it was ruled out. He also took a lie detector test and apparently passed that.
Josh and I had an interesting experience with the lights in the parking lot. Randy Linderman said he saw a white van in the parking lot. I experimented with a piece of sheet metal and a paint sample from vans of that vintage and under the parking lot lights it turned up "white" even though it was a light brown. Whether this experiment was ever taken by MCPD I don't know.
Now I have answers to my 'wondering' on the palm print. This must have been a violent abduction.
Surely Jodi's unit was processed for prints?
This palm print is obviously the best evidence LE have. (That we know of anyway)
I will consider it a given that it
I believe the palm print was on the outside drivers side door. They could have had dozens of Jodi palm prints on the steering wheel to rule out Jodi as the print.
I have been trying to visualise the crime scene and what happened at the point of abduction.
I'm wondering out loud how blood got on the hand of the perpetrator and then how the palm print got on the door of the car. Her car was a 'low slung' sports car.
I wonder also if there was much blood on the ground.
Maybe he had to balance himself while picking up Jodi.
We have a perpetrator who was smart enough to get away unseen, dispose of Jodi in a manner that means she has never been found and has eluded LE for fourteen years.
Has he been very clever or very lucky?
So the partial palm print was found on the driver's side door, but Jodi was opening the passenger's side door; I'm assuming to throw her belongings in, when she was hit?
Is this true?
If so, this is VERY odd.
Unless the abductor's car was parked right beside hers on the driver's side ( left side).
Did the drag marks and debris follow that pattern?
This has always been confusing to me as to which side of the car she was on when attacked. The only thing that makes sense of opening the passenger door is to put her bag in there. Then I heard that the right rearview mirror was damaged and the blood was on the passenger door side. I really don't know and that is something LE has been very quiet about in the past.
One witness described the vehicle as being covered with dew and the moisture had been rubbed off on the driver's side. The dew on the top of the car was also gone according to a witness that morning.
If you look at the pictures of where the car was and where the LE was searching, there is the empty spot that runs in the middle between the rows. The drag marks reportedly were in that middle section and at some point turned or perhaps came out the end of the row.
I have never examined a diagram laying out the location of her personal items that were scattered about the parking lot.
The activity around the car continues to be a mystery. Sure would be nice to see the files!!
I Have a video clip from the ten year anniversary. Actually I
My best guess is Jodi was attacked on the driver
Could you possibly let us see that video? and/or freeze some of those pictures of her hairdryer and shoes in relation to the car?
I think you're right.
She was opening the drivers side, not the passenger's side.
I'm also trying to figure out if she was hit from behind ( which means the abductor and car were parked on her left side) OR if she was hit from her right side ( which means the abductor and car were parked perpendicular to her car ( like R. Linderman reported).
I honestly doubt there was much of a struggle. She was pretty small and I bet the hairdryer, shoes etc. flew out of her arms/hands the minute she was struck. It doesn't sound like they were that scattered...shoe beside front tire is not scattered, in my opinion.
Any items farther than that were probably moved randomly by people going to work that morning before the police got there.
Wonder who parked; if anyone; opposite of her parking place. Did that person go to work that morning?
Her purse and briefcase were taken though, right?
I'll see what I can do with the video on Saturday. It is late Friday night where I live.
It (video) might be in a format I can't do a lot with.
However I will do my best to either upload it or find where I got it from.
I get by with computers but I'm no genius with them.:)
When I originally posted this topic, I questioned the people who may have been printed for palm prints I was aware that Corsecadden was not a match. However, in the original interview Gary did with Ms. Good, she was very taken back regarding the insistence of Jodi's acquaintance who had multiple trucks and did not want to drive Ms. Good home the night of the abduction in a specific truck of his.
I understand that individual either had a side business with people who work for him and those where the types of people I was referring to. Someone on instructions, who probably were well aware of Jodi's routine and may have done this. Have possible employees of possible suspects been palm printed?.
One would think this palm print has eliminated a lot of suspects.
At least it is a solid peice of evidence LE has.
Has it ever been run through the huge data bases like you see in cold case shows?
As a side issue I wonder why chunks of my posts are missing? It's no big dead but I am a little curious.:)
I'm not sure where I've heard this- maybe it's just word and mouth around Mason City. My mother was living in Mason City at the time and she could have had a few friends/relations who heard something 'underground'. But I thought it was general knowledge (I guess not for the online community) in this crime that at the crime scene, Jodi's keys were found bent in the door. To me, this indicates she saw the man approaching her, and was trying to quickly make it into the driver's side of her car. Makes sense to me.
belay that last message. It appears that on the cold case site, it states that she had been attacked trying to open up the passenger side door. Just shows you how much rumors and the grapevine really distort the truth. My wife used to live in the same apartment complex as Jodi as well so I know the area pretty good. Seems like the person who assaulted her came up on her in seconds, probably a sprint which explains the bent mirror. Does anyone have information on which parking spot her Miata was parked in? This could provide some insight on how the events really unfolded that morning.
Yes, abductions happen very quickly.
Most people have seen the video of the Kelsey Smith abduction that happened on a Saturday afternoon in a Target parking lot.
The perpetrator was 'flying' and the victim must have been hit with considerable force.
I would imagine it would have been a similar scenario in Jodie's case.
I wonder when the palm print was last run through data bases?
