***Fox News Investigates explores a new true crime story each season*** She had everything going for her: A good job, close friends, a loving family, a boyfriend and a brand new condo. Her family describes her as a strong, fun-loving, career-minded, and responsible young woman. So why did Jennifer Kesse seemingly vanish without a trace? On the morning of Tuesday, January 24, 2006, Jennifer Kesse failed to show up for work at Central Florida Investments, where she was a finance manager. Jennifer was known for her reliability, but on that winter morning 14 years ago, nobody heard from Jen. And that meant something was terribly wrong. In this podcast, hosted by crime reporter Cristina Corbin, she travels to Florida to uncover new leads, conduct exclusive interviews, and examine evidence in recently unsealed police records. Years later, the Jennifer Kesse case is anything but cold. In fact, the investigation, by some accounts, is only just beginning.

Great host

I would definitely listen to more podcasts done by this host. The podcast was put together very well. I’m sad for the family and that there hasn’t been a better outcome. I would have liked to hear more about leads followed up by the family

PLEASE do another case!

I was completely engulfed in the podcast. It was a comprehensive look at Jennifer’s disappearance and I felt like it was as informative as it possibly could be.
(The host has a great voice & it was not irritating at all. I listen to a LOT of these type podcasts and some voices can be down right excruciating!)
I really feel so much empathy for this family and I pray, as a parent, I’m never in their position. If I were I’d pray for the strength to fight as hard as this family has!
I hope they eventually get the answers they’ve been in search of because it’s been WAY TOO LONG.

We Need More Like This….

I hate to ever say I “love” an investigation podcast as the subject is beyond painful to hear. However this series was so masterfully built and delivered. The host has such a sweet and calming way of explaining details… and more than that… asking the pointed questions during interviews.
This story has captured me… I hope one day there is resolution for her family.
Thank you for delivering story to the masses and lighting a fire in our minds.
