It's been nearly 17 years since Jennifer Lee Wilson was seen in south-central Kansas, and some fear foul play in her disappearance.

Jennifer was reported missing on Sept. 1, 2002, after she had a fight with her roommate. Their argument started at a club where Jennifer worked and continued to their home, located near south 143rd Street and east 63rd Street – east of Derby.
