Great points Meg--I completely agree, and have said the exact same things. I also think if she had THAT level of crazy stalker, he would have shown up in her life previous to this. Disturbing calls, repeatedly showing up at the news station or remotes...something. Someone would have known about his existence. Their very first interaction being him kidnapping her from her apartment (the one morning she was hours late) just doesn't seem realistic to me.

I also think it was just a random crime of opportunity. There's never been any real reason to think otherwise. But for some reason, the public nature of her job has led to so much unfounded speculation.

Cheers,
Matt

And why would he bother to stage an abduction scene?

He's weird and creepy as hell, but I just don't think he's the guy. I think Jodi's abductor might not even have been a crazed fan or stalker planning this abduction for a long period of time, considering she was running late. I think it's more likely that such a person would have been wary of the deviation in Jodi's routine that day, and he would've gotten nervous and left.

I've always thought Tony Jackson was a weak suspect. The links are speculative and tenuous.

I think she may have very well been abducted by an opportunist who would've grabbed the first young woman he encountered at that time and place.

To that end, if it was a stalker, I really think it was more of a neighborhood thing and not a fan. There has been speculation that a couple of guys who lived nearby may have taken an interest in her (as in “that blond lady that lives here” and not Jodi the news anchor). I can see a couple of guys coming home drunk, seeing her, and taking her away. Maybe they got too rough with her and then realized it was too late.

RaidenKhan, you make a good point. She hadn’t reported any stalkers very close before her disappearance. It seems odd that their first (known) encounter would be kidnapping and murder. I could even believe if she was shot to death on sight by a crazy stalker before I can believe a stalker did this.

I think someone who knew her wanted her dead or someone saw a sudden opportunity.

I believe she knew her attacker or at least knew who he was. That early in the morning i tend to think he knew she would be coming out because he knew her schedule. And also probably knew she had a tendency to be late. It wouldn't surprise me if he lived in that building so his vehicle wouldn't stand out as unusual to anyone who lived there and may see it.

48 Hours did a interesting piece on this case. I wonder if that male friend of hers had anything to do with it?

That's been discussed throughout this thread, but I'll add that I think the male friend (John Vansice) knows more than he's letting on, whether or not he's the one that actually did it is another matter.
