In a stunning development, authorities have finally identified a suspect in the decades-old cold case of Jennifer Renee Odom, who was tragically murdered in Pasco County, Florida, back in 1993, Your Content has learned.

The 12-year-old girl vanished after stepping off her school bus and never made it home, prompting an extensive search effort that captivated the community.

After over 30 years of investigation, the breakthrough came when detectives tested biological evidence in 2015, obtaining a DNA profile that led to the suspect’s identification.

Jeffrey Norman Crum, aged 61, has been charged multiple times in his life and is currently serving two life sentences for a similar crime in Pasco County.

At a Hernando County press conference, State Attorney Bill Gladson announced that a Florida grand jury recommended indicting Crum on charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping, and sexual battery in connection with Jennifer’s case.
