Working on the FindJodi team, we are always waiting for the one tip that will finally end the almost 21-year search for Jodi Huisentruit. We hope someone with information about Jodi’s abduction will contact the Mason City Police Department or our team and help solve the case.
The power of keeping a cold case in the public eye was just reinforced with the solving of an unidentified human remains case I included in a recent investigative report for KSBY TV, the NBC affiliate in San Luis Obispo, CA. The day after my report aired in late December, I heard from a viewer who recognized one of “John Does”
in the report as a man she knew as a cook named Phil Bishop, who worked at her local Moose club.
Pamela Coffey then shared the information and photos with a San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Coroner’s office detective. The Sheriff’s office announced this week it had confirmed Pamela’s information, found Phil’s real name was Phillip Ashoff and notified his family. I hope some day another person like Pamela will see a report on Jodi and be that tipster who provides answers for the Huisentruit family and the Mason City community.
