Jennifer's Condo

For the purposes of showing the layout, below are photos of Jennifer's actual unit from it's realtor.com listing years after the event.

THE UNIT:   BUILDING 22
                     APARTMENT 2226

Of the 447 units in Jennifer’s complex, only 250 were occupied at the time of her disappearance. [70] There was extensive remodeling going on, including some work in Jennifer’s own unit. [70]

 

Drew Kesse has said that a full set of keys to everyone’s unit at Mosaic had previously been stolen. He also says that a key making machine with a box full of blanks was out in plain sight in the condo office. Jennifer and her dad had decided to change the locks prior to her disappearance but she delayed the actual changing of them due to being too busy. She intended to get them changed as soon as she felt settled in. [54] Her dad advised her to stick a chair under the door knob handle at night and she told him that she started doing that every night. [57]

 

Another woman who lived in Mosaic at Millenia at the time recounts a time when she heard someone trying to get in her unit with a key but a deadbolt prevented them. She later found out that a Miami realtor had been trying to show her unit to prospective buyers and had given her no notice at all. [60]

II.

The Car

Thursday, January 26, 2006 a resident of Huntington on the Green the condominium complex notified Orlando police of a vehicle parked in the visitor parking spot. Orlando police determined this vehicle was Jennifer Kesse's. 

Jennifer's mother Joyce described Jennifer's habits when getting in a car,

saying:

 

“Jennifer, creature of habit, would get in a car, take her elbow [and with it] lock the car door button, put her seat belt on… Well as the creature of habit, in doing that she would  also look around her car.” [26]

NO SIGNS OF STRUGGLE

The inside of Jennifer’s car provided more frustration for investigators and her family: there was no sign of a struggle, no blood, no identifiable fingerprints except for Jennifer’s.

DVD PLAYER

Images of evidence found within the car is taken from a video in which police show crime scene photos to the camera. 

But there was one item found that bothered detectives: a DVD player. That DVD player hadn’t been stolen. Asked what that tells him, Sgt. Brennan says, ‘It didn’t appear that it was a robbery. Didn’t appear that it was a car theft. It didn’t appear that it was a carjacking.’

TWO PAIRS OF SANDALS

Two pairs of flip flop sandals can be seen at the bottom of the front passenger side of the car. The darker of the two appears to be the same ones Jennifer can be seen wearing in photos of her in St. Croix with Rob. Her family has said she was in the habit of wearing flip flops in the parking lot to walk between her condo and her car so the pavement would not scuff her dress heels she wore for work.

IV.

Video of Person of Interest

After Orlando police located Jennifer's vehicle at Huntington on the Green, officers reviewed surveillance footage of the parking lot where it was found. 

 

The surveillance footage showed that the car had been driven into the lot, parked and an unknown person exited the vehicle at noon of January 24, 2006, the same day as her disappearance. Noon is less than five hours after the time when Jennifer would normally exit her condo to walk to her car. 

Orlando police have chosen to refer to this individual as a "person of interest" (often shortened to POI) and not as a suspect.
