June 5, 2020 33 min begins our new podcast series focused on the timeline involved in Iowa news anchorwoman Jodi Huisentruit’s unsolved disappearance.

We retraced Jodi’s activities in the 24-48 hours before she was abducted in her apartment parking lot on her way to anchor the morning news at KIMT-TV in Mason City on June 27, 1995.

The 27-year-old Long Prairie, Minnesota native joined the small CBS-affiliate in northern Iowa in 1993.

By June of 1995, Jodi was actively looking to move on to a much bigger television market.

Our FindJodi team compiled the timeline after interviewing people who were close personally and professionally to Jodi, by reviewing extensive news media coverage of the investigation, obtaining some police reports and by doing interviews over the years with Mason City investigators.

We have also talked with many residents who lived at Jodi’s apartment complex and with people who were with Jodi at the Chamber of Commerce golf tournament just hours before she was abducted.
