Season 3, Episode 10 – Mason City

Support Frozen Truth on Patreon

I spent this last week of March 2019 in Mason City, where I was able to speak with some of those most closely involved with the Jodi Huisentruit case.

Jodi’s television station, KIMT-TV in Mason City, Iowa, which is about 1 mile from the apartment complex where she disappeared.

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.

    There’s an interesting conversation on a true crime Garage interview about Randy Linderman. One of the guys he worked with said he never went to work that day. If that’s true it would call into question him saying he had seen an white fan on the way to work.

      Hi Jonathan, thanks for reaching out.
      The tip you’re referring to is known information about the case.

    Scott, are you aware that, according to Dead Air, John VanSice had been spotted on multiple occasions in a vehicle in the Key Apts parking lot in the early morning hours in the months leading up to Jodi’s disappearance? I believe that at the time he no longer was a Key Apts tenant.
