Default Jodi Huisentruit Update

Just found this today. No arrest but a search warrant issued on one of the initial suspects.

Thanks for sharing this.

Iím not saying he did it but he is certainly the most logical suspect. Some of what he says is very suspicious, too. He is just an odd guy and his relationship with Jodi was not normal. Iíll be curious what he has to say.

The suspicion was that he allegedly hired someone to do his own dirty work for him. He was too smart to carry out the act himself. My own view is that it was a crazed fan who had become obsessed with her.

Online court records show police were seeking GPS data from a 1999 Honda Civic and a 2013 GMC 1500. Vansice is listed as the interested party on the warrant, which is under seal.
Huh? she disappeared in 1995.. They think he went and moved her body recently or something?

That'd be my guess, although with everything under such tight seal, who knows??

My gut still tells me it was a crazed and obsessed fan. It's truly scary to think how easy this abduction was to pull off. She lived in a tiny apartment complex, not in a gated location. At that time of morning with nobody awake yet, she would have been a sitting duck. Any local creep who obsessively watched her on TV every day would have easy access to her after figuring out her routine.

I'll wait and see what becomes of John Vansice but I'm still not completely convinced. Even if he was considered a weirdo, Jodi apparently had no apprehension over going to his apartment to watch the video of her birthday party. Being weird doesn't always = killer.

True, but he did want more from her than she was willing to give to him. He named his boat after her for God's sake... I'm not convinced he did it or even had anything to do with it. However, his behavior before and after the murder was nothing less than bizarre. If they have enough evidence to get a warrant for his vehicles, then there has to be at least decent evidence against him.

The main reason I doubt the crazed fan theory is because she was running late that day. If someone was stalking her, I'm not convinced they would have stayed that long if she was normally gone by then. (I realize that's a little thin, but it's what I'm going with.)

It may not have been JV, but I believe she knew her killer on at least some level.

Oh, I'm convinced. A crazy stalker fan who went through all the trouble of tracking down her home, memorizing her schedule to and from work, figuring out the endgame once he had her and finally driving to her apartment is not going to have any issue with waiting an extra hour for her to walk out of her apartment. There are the same amount of witnesses around at 4:00 a.m. than there would have been at 3:00 a.m.; none. Very easy to pull off.

I'd rather the culprit be JV because you have someone to go on. A crazy viewer turned stalker gives you absolutely no starting point to investigate because it could be ANYONE. Unfortunately, my gut tells me crazed fan.

Hard for me to think that someone would become obsessed with a local TV news anchor.. But.. Crazy is crazy.

She was young, attractive, good personality. Many famous people have stalkers, even ones who dont' have a good personality. I could see a nut taking too much of a liking to her.

I agree with your theory 100%. in so many of these cases we try to make logic out of it. with random acts of violence there is no logic. some people are just sick.
