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.

I keep waiting for them to unseal the warrants against John Vancise to see what it is they were looking for against him.

I can't remember if I mentioned this before, but if you are interested in Jodi's case you should check out season 3 of the "Frozen Truth" podcast. The host does a good job of giving the history of this case and going through the possible suspects in detail. [On a side note, season 1 of "Frozen Truth" covered another UM case, Amy Wroe Bechtel.] I have nothing to do with this podcast other than I enjoyed listening to it and I learned quite a bit about this case that I didn't know before.

Indeed - I was actually kind of hesitant to post this (given that it smells like a delaying tactic on the part of some Defense Attorneys)

There was an episode of 48 Hours earlier this year on this case. They go into greater detail than the UM version ever did, including 2 possible suspects.

About eight months before her abduction Jodi mentioned being stalked. A white van was involved which are always bad news.

Here is an update on Jodi's case, where a private investigator says he has the last known video footage of Jodi.

Interestingly enough, the investigator says Jodi and a friend where with John Vancise and his son on their boat but jumped on another boat with two other men. This raises two big questions in my mind:
1) Could these guys have had something to do with her disappearance?, or
2) Could this have made John Vancise angry enough at Jodi that it led to a later fight?

Nothing earth-shattering here, but it is more evidence and hopefully we can start narrowing in on what happened in the days and hours before Jodi was abducted.

Scuttlebutt for the reason for the GPS subpeona/search warrant is that they think he's been visiting her grave.

that's pretty sick. To have the thought that someone would do that first off, and if someone would actually do that.
