11-07-2: On bloodhounds

Drove to Minneapolis Holiday Inn Metrodome.  Met with Sara [JENKINS] and bloodhound handler-XXXXXX

8:40 AM Sara went to rear of Holiday Inn to get her vehicle.  The driver’s side front side window had been broken and Chris’s cell phone had been stolen out of it.  I placed a call to Sgt. XXXXXX and reported the incident then to FBI agent XXXXXX and left a message regarding the same.

9:00 AM Sara, XXXXXX, her associate and XXXXXX’s bloodhound drove to and parked in the parking lot between Hennepin and 1st Ave. North next to 5th Street. A search was initiated starting in front of the Lone Tree bar utilizing the bloodhound.  A no-hit was assumed at that starting point.  We continued the search directly in front of Times Square Pizza and Subs.  The bloodhound seemed to pick up a scent which subsequently brought all of us into the indoor parking facility immediately north Times Square.  The dog circled the rather small main floor of the parking facility then went down a ramp into the lower level.  It immediately went to an area behind the wall separating two parking areas in the lower level.  The bloodhound went to stall number 90 then 89 and had what XXXXXX stated as a solid hit.  We exited the facility and re-started the bloodhound’s search on the Hennepin avenue side of the parking lot we had parked in, just behind the bus stop shelter close to 5th Street on Hennepin avenue.  The dog zig-zagged around the lot then took a  straight line rapid walk, paralleling the West wall of Glueks bar, then went east on the sidewalk and stopped in front of the Lone Tree bar.  XXXXXX gave the dog a short time out then started the process again.  The bloodhound took XXXXXX directly across Hennepin, walked past Times Square Pizza then into the same parking facility and down the ramp where it again went to stalls 89 and 90 and presented in behavior what XXXXXX described as a solid hit again.

We subsequently walked on the west side sidewalk of Hennepin past the tobacco shop located on the northwest corner of Hennepin and 5th Street.  The bloodhound did not exhibit any behavior that could be interpreted as a hit.  We crossed Hennepin and proceeded to walk towards the Hennepin avenue bridge. I placed cell calls to both XXXXXX of the FBI and XXXXXX of the BCA and explained the apparent hit by the bloodhound.  Beneath the north end of the Hennepin avenue bridge the bloodhound went to and into the river directly below the bridge.  XXXXXX felt that might indicate another hit.  We walked north on the rivers edge which proved unremarkable except for bedding and clothing located underneath the Grain Belt sign just past the west side of the bridge.  There were Indian signs scratched into the steel support beams of the billboard and a slogan that read “stand proud.”


8-07-03: Omid Mosheni

11:30 am Prepared list of questions concerning river, speed of current, depth, temperature, past history, etc for XXXXXX.

1:15 pm Drove to Mpls., power plant on Mississippi; to meet with XXXXXX.

2:00 pm Arrived, power plant.  Went over all details with XXXXXX that he might need to know.  Reviewed pictures taken off Fox 9 video, left him photos, video, copy of questions and copy of letter to XXXXXX.  XXXXXX suggested he will put together a proposal of costs, to: 1) make a physical model-best bet, can determine many if not all aspects of river, including the possibility to determine or exclude, areas in the river Chris and the tree might have originated from.
2) create a mathematical model, much less expensive but much less telling.

3:12 pm Call to Steve while I was with XXXXXX, had steve speak to XXXXXX.  XXXXXX took Jan’s e-mail address and will send Steve a cost perspective of both plans.

3:30 pm Left XXXXXX’s office, went to end of power plant area facing 3rd avenue bridge, photographed area.

4:55 pm Call to Steve, went over benifits of doing the physical model.  He said Sara was coming over to their house tonight.

5:30 pm Back at office......file work.

10:37 am Call to Steve, left message for him to call me regarding above data.

4:40 pm Call from Steve, went over new information from XXXXXX.

8-12-03

12:27 pm Call from XXXXXX; due to the Anoka reporting station RIVER FLOW GAUGE being frozen from December 3, 2002 to March 11, 2003, no direct data on river flow rates are availabe.  This affects calculations in river modeling.  I asked him if they could factor in river flow data from before and after the gauge froze and work out a model, to which XXXXXX said, very possibly, by factoring in precipitaion during the period and other factors.  He said the average mean low tempurature after November 11th was under 32 degrees F.  He did say that solor radiation is a factor at river level in preventing the forming of ice.  He is going to seek satilite information first and get back to me for the following reasons: 1.  Cost effective
2.  It could be the best source, if availabe, in tracking the tree and Chris in the Mississippi river.

2:22 pm Drove to Proex, picked up recent photos taken from power plant area....$18.00

Bridges and river currents

5-22-03

9:00 am Met Steve and Jan Jenkins at Hennepin County Medical Examiners office.  I reviewed autopsy photos (79) while Steve and Jan met privately with Dr. XXXXXX.
  Autopsy was unremarkable in regard to obvious damage to Chris.  The lack of
obvious and internal damage seems to eliminate, to a degree, Chris jumping off, or falliing off the Hennepin avenue bridge, as he would likely have made contact with the steel I-beam located exterior of the bridge wall.  A more likely bridge would be the much lower one that leads to the Warf and other resturants.

10:45 am End meeting.

1:30 pm Drove to attorney XXXXXX office.  Jan, Steve and myself, met with XXXXXX about the possibility of his taking the case on in a civil action.  He is going to review the case and get back to us.

5:00 pm Back at office.

5-27-03

6:00 pm File work and billing review.

5-28-03

11:30 pm Billing submitted; XXXXXX...........30.75 hours

6-09-03

12:30 pm Drove to Mpls. Mississippi River area along N.E. side.  Dropped orange rubber dummy in river off NE side of  IRON BRIDGE.  The dummy drfted with current, underneath and past the 3rd avenue bridge.  I drove around from the Iron Bridge area to the reasturant area east of the 3rd. Avenue bridge.  Walking down to the shoreline, I watched the dummy flow with the current and drift to within 8 feet of where I was standing.  I picked up the same dummy and returned to the Iron Bridge, where I then dropped it into the river within 20 yards of the Nicollet Island shoreline (North side) and watched it flow with the current.  As the dummy drifted toward the far east point of the island, it slowed considerably in the dead zone or eddie  area.  After about five minutes it continued out into the open area underneath the 3rd avenue bridge and subsequently ended up in the middle of the Excel Power plant area where a large amount of river debrie had accumulated just west of a fence that prevents such objects from passing over a narrow falls which lies on the north-east side of the parking lot on the property.  I drove to the Excel site where I met with a XXXXXX, who works for Excel (he wore a magnetic braclet for arthritis) who explained to me that when the (4) Excel turnbines are on, anything in the river north of the dam would be sucked into this area.  He said a search of records would reveal if the turbines were on when Chris’ body was found.   He also said, based on his experience, that objects flowing in the backwater or underneath the Iron Bridge, would most certainly end up by the power plant and not by the dam.  I also met witha XXXXXX, phone = XXXXXX, at this facility, who is working as a Information Technology professional for U of M. at St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, Institute of Technology.  XXXXXX, Mpls, MN, 55414. He said I should contact XXXXXX......? at XXXXXX, in regard to doing river current experiments with life size dummy’s to help understand where Chris’ body might have traveled from.

3:30 pm Back at office

Chris' Body Found

02-27-28

1:30 am End

02-28-03

All day news contacts.

Call to Dr. XXXXXX North Memorial Hospital, inquired of another Pathologist, he did not have a suggestion.  Went over XXXXXX’s theory of Chris going over bridge but I told XXXXXX Chris’s shoes were still on......he said highly unlikely that loafers would stay on after a jump into the river.

Psychics

01-05-03

8:37 am Drove to Marriot Courtyard to meet with Steve, Jan, XXXXXX and XXXXXX

9:12 am Arrived. Drove to Minneapolis with group.  Went to Chris Jenkins home, XXXXXX
  gave her “psychic” rendition of Chris’s abduction.

11:00 am Drove to Lone Tree bar area.  XXXXXX said we would not find Chris, that Chris would be found in a construction site by a construction worker.  Said vehicle used in abduction of Chris was a mid-50's Olds or Buick, lots of chrome on bumper area, dark green in color.  She said Chris was the first victim by this perp, that this perp had visited the Gay 90's bar that night, had spotted Chris as he (perp) drove around the block, entered the key-card-access controlled parking area behind the Lone Tree and abducted Chris.  Together (Chris was either dead or unconscious at that point), they went left on Hennepin and drove towards and over the Hennepin avenue bridge.  This would have been impossible as 5th street was entirely blocked off on Hennepin with concrete barriers during the time Chris disappeared due to light-rail construction.  XXXXXX also went from being rather specific in what she was going to do and where Chris was, prior to her coming to Minneapolis to speaking in more general terms which could cover many different areas.  In her saying she saw alleys and construction fences in her mind, those things are typical of a major city and not very specific.  I also had the feeling she had prior knowledge of events and possibly the area. 

12:30 pm Drove to Marganita Bella restaurant on Central and Spring streets Northeast in Minneapolis.  We parked in rear of restaurant where XXXXXX stated Chris had been brought here by a homosexual killer.  She and I went inside the restaurant and met with XXXXXX.  XXXXXX described the person we were looking for as being a white male, possibly an Hispanic, homosexual.  She at first told me the owner of the bar knew the killer in question and knew of his classic car.  XXXXXX knew nothing about anyone described by XXXXXX nor did he ever see a classic Olds or Buick park at his restaurant.  XXXXXX seemed to be fishing for answers rather then telling what was actually reality.

12:45 pm Drove to a small crafts shop on 3rd street Northeast just off of Broadway and 2nd avenue Northeast in Minneapolis.  There, XXXXXX disappeared into the rear of the store where she apparently talked to a dog who in turn connected to XXXXXX via telepathy and communicated ideas back to XXXXXX.

1:30 pm I drove Steve and Jan Jenkins back to their vehicle parked behind Chris’s house.  Both were quite upset.  I explained my opinion of XXXXXX, which was that I believed her to not be an accreted psychic but rather one who was clever and deceptive.  I went over XXXXXX’s  impossible explanation as to the direction of travel the perp drove after abduction Chris on Hennepin avenue, which would have taken the vehicle through concrete barriers on 5th street.
2:30 pm back at office.

   Chris told XXXXXX he planned on going downtown that evening.
   Chris never brought up that someone took $100.00 from his wallet that same morning (as stated by XXXXXX previously).
   Chris was already dressed in his Halloween Indian costume when XXXXXX entered his house just after 4:00 pm. The costume included a headband with a red feather sticking out of it.
   While XXXXXX was at Chris’ house (4-5 pm) Chris left to pick up XXXXXX and her brother and returned back to his house.
   XXXXXX said Chris was real happy with XXXXXX, that things were going great between the two of them.
   XXXXXX ended up going to Fairview Riverside Hospital to have his leg checked.
   XXXXXX’s roommate took him to Fairview around 9:30 pm.
   He got out of the hospital around 11:00 pm.
   He went back to his house for awhile.
   He called Chris’ cell phone (between 11:00 pm and 12:00 am) when he got home but there was no answer.
   XXXXXX placed a call to Chris’ house and spoke with one of  Chris’ roommates (XXXXXX) who said they were just hanging out
   Around midnight to 12:30 he/they decided to go over to Chris’ house.
   XXXXXX and his roommate went over to Chris’ house to just “hang out.”
   There were 3 of Chris’ roommates and some kids that had come back from the bar at the house when XXXXXX arrived.

   earlier in the day Chris had been looking for some grass.
   XXXXXX had asked Chris earlier (between 4 and 5 pm) if he had any grass because of the pain in his leg due to the fall.  Chris said he did not at the time but would go out and look for some.
   While XXXXXX was either in or going to the hospital, Chris called XXXXXX’s roommate XXXXXX and told him there was a keg of beer at Chris’s house.
