Jennifer Kesse has been missing for nearly 3 years in Orlando, FL. Jennifer went missing on January 24, 2006. It is being reported that there is a new tip in the case as David Russ. a confessed murderer has come forward and claims he has information in the case of the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse.
A convicted killer may have some clues in one of Central Florida’s highest profile missing person’s case.
But two weeks ago the lawyer for a convicted killer contacts Drew Kesse, Jennifer’s father. While its not unusual for Kesse to get tips the latest came from a man involved ina high profile murder of a Central Florida woman.
“I think it just one more lead that has to be follow up on,” Kesse said. “If it turns out then we have something to go on.”
The tip came from David Russ who is currently in the Seminole County jail waiting to be sentenced after he pled guilty for the murder of Madeline Leinen in 2007. Russ asked to meet with Drew Kesse because he claims to have information about Jennifer’s disappearance.
Police will look into what Russ has said; however, they are skeptical and presently don’t believe he has the information that could break the case. It would appear that Russ has a vested interest in showing a sentencing judge that he is actually capable of being human and helping others in an effort to spare his life. David Russ is a confessed and convicted murderer.
Convicted murderer David Byron Russ met privately with the father of Jennifer Kesse and provided information that could lead Orlando police detectives to one or more suspects in her disappearance.
Initially a spokes woman for the Orlando County Police did not comment on the story. Later she emailed the following statement:
“The information that David Russ gave to Mr. Kesse was nothing new. We knew about that several months, and our detectives checked into that. We won’t discuss that any further. This is NOT a big break in the case.”
DO NOT FORGET THAT THE KESSE’S ARE HOLDING AN EVENT TO MARK THE 3RD ANNIVERSARY OF JENNIFER KESSE’S DISAPPEARANCE.
