On January 1, 2020, the FindJodi billboard on North Federal Ave. in Mason City was defaced with spray paint and the name of a long-time former Mason City Police investigator, along with the words “machine shed”.
Was this a tip related to Jodi’s unsolved case? A prank having nothing to do with her disappearance? Something else?
FindJodi has obtained a copy of the Mason City Police Department Incident Report for the vandalism.
It reveals that the investigation was closed after four days, due to lack of leads. One item of evidence was logged by the department.
FindJodi continues to receive useful tips about the billboard vandalism.
