Default Kristen Modafferi - Has it been solved?

Hi, I am a longtime UM watcher, and recently from googling came across this forum. Awesome!! I thought my wife and I were the only people who tried to find out if cases were solved. I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the Kristen Modafferi case. I was living in San Francisco when this happened and haven't been able to find anything new on this case. Other than the website http://www.findkristen.com/ I couldn't tell if it had been updated recently. Thanks, and I look forward to contributing a lot.

In response to your message, I went to google.com, and discovered this link. It's new article (dated May 4, 2005) about the reauthorization of Kristen's Act. Named after Kristen Modafferi, Kristen's Act created a national database to search for missing adults as a result of foul play. However, Kristen has never been found.

Here's another link:

http://kristenfoundation.org

The site is named after Kristen Modafferi.

Thanks for both links, the first link was what prompted me to see if there was any update to her disappearance. I was wondering if the guy who is questionable on the findkristen.com website had been questioned, etc. I guess not.

not even a body? nothing new in this case....i did a search on this on google and found that no body or updates.

The disturbing part of this is that fact that one of the girls that the Jon character was abusing alleged that he mentioned Kristens name while the argued...this guy is guilty for sure just no evidence to back it up! sad case!!

Do you think it was Onuma?
Onuma is a shady character for sure, but that doesn;t necessarily mean he;s a killer.

I tend to lean toward suicide but I need to think on it more.

Old thread, but I have to admit I find that website a little unsettling. I'm not sure how fair it is to have people's names listed front and center in connection with the case just for having worked at the same place she did for less than a month. And people listed just for knowing the person of interest. Just doesn't seem right.

On another note, I tend to think she drowned and the guy just had a vendetta against some women and made the call. Stupid move, but even stupider if he did it.

My gut was always that Onuma is involved. He might not have killed her, or even been present when she was killed....but he is involved somehow.

Okay thanks. How likely do you think it is she was swept away at Land's End beach? Now her dad said in the segment that he didn't think so because it was a tourist area and someone would have seen something.
But from the info presented, I think it's the easiest and most likely explanation. She told co-workers before she left she planned to go there. The dogs tracked her there. It was mentioned in the segment that lots of people are washed away there.

The only things that point to other possibilities are the phone call and the blonde she was supposedly talking to. I think the beach scenario is at least as likely as the abduction scenario if not more so.

Knowing the area, what do you think of the beach scenario? How likely is it that she was swept away with no one witnessing it?
Thanks.

Thanks.
i've been around there. i will visit that specific area. if you had to ask me, that area tends to be full of people particularly on a summer's day. its a trail (land's end), being to the trail once, i'd surmise that i do not think she was swept away...but i'd have to visit that specific location where the dogs lost her scent. but from what i do know...people would have been there if she fell over. if she fell over i wold think the tide woulda pushed her to shore or her body would have been just at the rocks. its not like a golden gate suicide where they just jump over the bridge and the current takes them. it would have to be a VERY VERY specific location for her to fall...and have the ocean take her to sea. so i guess its possible, but i dont think so.

if it was a sunny day and it was during day i'm pretty sure people would have saw her. it tends to be very sunny in august onto around october november here...but early summer tends to be somewhat cold and foggy. if you ask me though, i've been to trail, but i would have to know where her scent ended. and it is my opinion though that for almost all places, someone would have seen something and that i just dont think she fell over or committed suicide knowing area somewhat. if i didn't been to this trail, i would have guessed this is an accidental death.

the thing is this, even if the dogs followed her scent there, who's to say that she was there that day? she coulda went there on another day. thats just my gut opinion. sorry for rambling. i'll post some pictures when i get chance.

This article is nearly a year old but I'll post it anyway.

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...MND01C7CBP.DTL

This case always fascinated me since I lived near San Francisco. In regards to the case, I think Kirsten was most likely killed. In the segment, it mentions that she wanted to explore the Bay Area as much as she could. IMO, she possibly when into the wrong area at the wrong time and perished as a result.

I agree. I looked at the website and it seemed to be saying "There's a 75-90% chance that ONE OF THESE PEOPLE [cue the scary music] killed her!!!" Honestly, if I were one of them, I'd be pretty upset to have my name up there like that. And weren't most of them (roommates, co-workers) cleared by the police?

Just curious, what makes you think that it might have been suicide?

I go back and forth on this one. Too bad the identity of the woman Modaferri was (possibly) talking to was never determined. Onuma is a creep, but there's no concrete evidence that he ever had any contact with her. There's no mention of why the police no longer consider him a suspect.

It's possible that she was in the Land's End or Sutro Baths area and no one noticed what became of her. She wouldn't have been the first person to go missing from those locations. Below are some similar cases:
