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.

Really good!

I’m fascinated and can’t stop listening.

The one star reviews are hilarious to read. So many haters on a pathological level just because it’s associated with FOX 😆

Some of you need to find meaning in life and stop using politics as a religion...

Great reporting & podcast

Anyone who thinks this podcast has “racist undertones” or is catering to “white privilege” is delusional and completely ignorant. I’m a native Orlandian and tbh Orlando (and Florida as a whole) is full of access to cheap labor from illegal immigrants - it is what it is and to sugar coat it for these sensitive imbeciles writing these ome star reviews based on their hurt feelings, would be wrong and is absolutely ridiculous. Not just for the sake of reporting the factual details of the case but for the family who had gone through so much. Get off your high horse people, not everything is puppies and rainbows or politically correct when it comes to true crime. I thought they did a wonderful reporting the facts. Good job!

Not at all racist

It’s baffling to me that people think this is a racist podcast. Jennifer repeatedly told her friends and family that the workers at Mosaic were making her very uncomfortable before she disappeared. Clearly many other women felt threatened and unsafe living there, because of the workers behavior towards them. What happened to “believe all women?” Apparently not when they’re being harassed, stalked and murdered by another politically trendy group.
