Jennifer Last Seen, Missing
Jennifer was last seen leaving her home in Granbury, Texas, on October 20, 2019. Pautenis told her family that she was putting her children to bed when she heard her leave the house.
According to the press release, investigators are working a scene where human remains were found. The remains are being sent to a forensic lab for identification, the sheriff’s office said.
“I’m glad to see this case move forward,” Sheriff Roger Deeds said. “My investigators have worked non-stop since Jennifer was reported missing and my hope is, we give Jennifer’s family some type of closure on this terrible tragedy.”
In November, Dateline NBC spoke with Jenn’s sister, Daisy Thorton-Newhouse, who said she feared something terrible would have happened to Jenn. “To be honest, I don’t think we’re going to find her alive,” Daisy told Dateline. “I think we’re going to find his body. And it breaks my heart every time I think about it.” Family members told Dateline in November that they didn’t hear about her sister’s disappearance until her employer alerted them when she didn’t show up to work as a LifeCare EMS dispatcher. Daisy said it was Jenn’s dream to be an EMS dispatcher. Jenn and her husband, Ed, moved from Florida to Granbury, Texas, in 2017, to be closer to Ed’s family. Jenn’s husband stayed home with the children, who are 7 and 5 years old, while Jenn worked in a restaurant and finally got the job of her dreams of becoming a dispatcher.
“She was so happy. She loves helping people,” Daisy said. “She’s such a good-hearted person who just loves to laugh and smile.”
When Daisy and her sister, Melissa, learned of Jenn’s disappearance, they said they were upset that no one had told them. They filed a missing person’s report on October 25.
“Her husband is saying he did not file a missing person’s report because he said she willingly left the house,” Daisy said. ”But we definitely knew something was not right. We’re her family, her blood, we know when something was wrong.”
