Video: Potential new evidence in Jennifer Odom case


Brooksville, Florida -- Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis announced Tuesday the sheriff's office is currently working on one particular lead out of hundreds in murder case of Jennifer Odom.

Sheriff Nienhuis says one recent tip indicated there might be evidence related to this case in Lake Jovita, located in Dade City, and they have teamed up with the Pasco Sheriff's Office and the FBI in recovering that possible evidence.

Sheriff Nienhuis stressed in his release to the media that this is one of hundreds and hundreds of leads that have been, and continue to be, worked in this case.

At this time, authorities are working to recover the alleged evidence to determine its origin and possible relevance to this or any other crime.

Back in February of this year, on the 20th anniversary of Jennifer Odom's death, Sheriff Nienhuis assigned a detective specifically to her case in the hopes of solving her murder.

"We have been working several different angles on this case since I assigned a detective full time to this investigation," said Sheriff Al Nienhuis. "We are, of course, hopeful that this is the break in this case that we have been waiting for. Unfortunately, it will be some time before we can even determine if this operation yields evidence of a crime and even longer to determine if there will be evidence useful to us in this particular case."

Jennifer was abducted on Feb. 19, 1993, from Pasco County while walking home from her bus stop. Authorities said an older blue full-size pickup truck was reported seen in the area at the time of her disappearance.

Jennifer's body was found six days later in an orange grove in Hernando County. Two years later, on Jan. 25, her missing clarinet case and school bag were found in a rural area in Hernando County. Since then, the person, or persons, involved in Jennifer's disappearance and murder remains a mystery.
