Official FBI statistics say that 76.4% of the time, when a woman meets with foul play - she knew her assailant(s). An FBI agent told me personally that the percentage is much higher: 'It's more like 90%", he said.
Take your pick. The odds are between 76.4% and 90.0% that Kristen Modafferi knew whoever the person(s) are that caused her harm.
Important: Kristen was only in the Bay Area for 23 days. June 1st, 1997 - June 23rd, 1997 before she vanished. She barely knew anyone.
As far as we know - she only knew about 30-35 people. Just based on the FBI stats - there is a very good chance that one of these 30-35 people at the very least have some kind of information relative to Kristen's disappearance.
With the exception of Jon Onuma, every name listed on the left hand side of this webpage is listed only because they had some contact with Kristen in her short stay in the San Fran Bay Area. (Roommates, co-workers and a few friends).
They got to meet her. That is it.
Names listed beneath Jon Onuma (in blue) are listed only because I came to learn of their identity through looking at Jon Onuma. Everyone listed - except Jon Onuma - is presumed completely innocent.
I have always felt that the FBI stat is an important one and with the power of Google and Facebook - it would be irresponsible to Kristen to not at least try this in an effort to gain some info as to what happened to her back on June 23rd, 1997.
Many of you may have been directed to this webage from Facebook.
Please remember that Kristen's roommates and co-workers are in fact - most probably innocent, innocent, innocent of having anything to do with Kristen's disappearance.
All that is happening here is that I am taking the FBI stat of 76.4% and casting out a very wide net and just hoping somebody with information has a conscious and sends in a tip.
Read the Eve Carson story below and you will see what I mean.
While these people are blessed to have had the opportunity to meet Kristen in life - they are in some ways suffering the misfortune of having their name listed on a website that has to do with a missing person.
After 13 years with no answers, the one glaring beam of optimism we have is the fact that Kristen was only in the Bay Area for 22 days and that she only knew a few dozen people.
When Kristen vanished, we did not have Facebook, Google or Myspace. We do now and I want to use these tools to help Kristen.
We need your help as well. If you heard or suspect anything, then by all means, please let us know
I want to genuinely say to anyone whose name appears on this list that really has no info whatsoever on what happened to Kristen that I am very aware of how 'delicate' this is.
I ask that you understand I would be doing the same thing for you if you were the one who vanished.
Kristen vanished almost 15 years ago. If you know anthing about Kristen's disappearance, please, please find it in your heart to do the right thing. The Modafferies have endured more than their fair share of sadness over the years. Please help that wonderful family. AGt. Martha Parker - FBI: 510-808-8623 / Bob Modafferi Cell: 704-502-3063.
