New details in the disappearance of Jennifer Huston have been revealed, and they suggest that she may not have wanted anyone to find her. Police have shared that they believe the reason Jennifer’s phone lost service is because the mother-of-two turned it off.
Jennifer Huston, 38, disappeared without a trace while running a normal batch of errands near her Dundee, Oregon home. Unfortunately, after 12 grueling days of searching for the missing mother and wife, her body was discovered in a wooded area on a private batch of land in another town. Now, police are slowly but surely revealing new details about Jennifer’s disappearance, including some information that suggests she may not have wanted anyone to find her.
Jennifer Huston’s Disappearance: Did She Intentionally Turn Her Phone Off?
While investigators put together the pieces of Jennifer’s disappearance and death, more information has been revealed surrounding her mysterious death.
Police have shared that they believe Jennifer turned her own cell phone off, which is why no one could get in touch with her after she disappeared. The last time Jennifer’s cell phone emitted a “ping” revealing her location was at around 6:30pm on July 24, the day she vanished, near the Circle K gas station where she was last seen.
There are also multiple reports that Jennifer allegedly purchased sleeping pills and took out cash before disappearing.
All of this evidence suggests that Jennifer may have intentionally disappeared and hoped not to be found.
Unfortunately, until police reveal the circumstances of how her body was discovered, as well as her autopsy results, nothing is confirmed.
Jennifer’s Family Devastated After Body Found
Jennifer left behind her two sons, ages 2 and 6, as well as her devastated husband, Kallen. Kallen never gave up hope that Jennifer was out there somewhere, and even after police stopped searching for her he rallied friends, family, and supporters to continue the search.
“Jennifer, if you can see this or hear this, I love you. You’ve got a ton of support from the community, if you can come home… please do so,” Kallen said in an emotional statement on Aug. 2. “The boys need you. I need you.”
Kallen and others were constantly updating a Facebook page called “Find Jennifer Huston” with information and search area requests. Sadly, the last update came after Jennifer’s body was discovered and requested privacy for the grieving family at this time.
Our thoughts remain with Jennifer’s friends and family at this difficult time.
