The only witness in the case isn’t really an eye-witness to the crime at all. Randy Linderman was driving to work early that morning Jodi disappeared. He says he saw a white van appearing to idle in Jodi’s small apartment parking lot sometime before she disappeared. You’ll hear Mr. Linderman’s account of that morning in this episode.
My thanks to Chief Jeff Brinkley and the Mason City Police Department for their time and accommodation during my time in Iowa this week.
Additional thanks to KETV reporter and anchor James Wilcox for his assistance in this episode.

Rank #12: Season 3, Episode 5 – Is It You?
One of those men ruled out by authorities in Jodi’s case was a violent serial rapist who stalked some of his victims before attacking them in their own homes. That man, 21 year-old Tony Jackson, lived two blocks from KIMT-TV in Mason City at the time Jodi vanished.
Some question what information police have kept quiet about Jackson that led to him being quickly ruled out as a possible suspect in the Huisentruit case.
Caroline Lowe broke the story of Jackson’s possible link to the Jodi Huisentruit disappearance for WCCO-TV in Minneapolis three years later in 1998. She joins me on this episode to discuss her research and reporting on Jackson. We also discuss another man often suspected in Jodi’s disappearance, local seed dealer John Vansice, and examine a third possibility in the case: that someone else, previously unknown, is actually the person responsible for one of Iowa’s most notorious abductions.
