Fulford was an organized and responsible woman. So when she didn’t arrive to pick up her client’s child from school, her family instantly knew something was wrong.
Her husband Robert Fulford told WKMG the day after she vanished:
It’s just not like her to disappear. I can’t get her on her cellphone. Her phone is off. She’s not answering texts. She’s the nicest lady, most responsible lady on the planet.
Police found surveillance video of Jennifer leaving her dentist’s office in Winter Park at 11:40 a.m. on Wednesday which was the last time she was seen alive as the police found her dead body on Thursday.
In a press conference, Winter Park Police Chief Michael Deal revealed that they found a video of a man using Jennifer’s ATM card.

It is certainly random and doesn’t occur every day here in Winter Park, but this obviously is a dangerous individual,
