    Exactly. My husband and I have both given each other POA and bought and sold houses without the other one present...but that's because we knew for sure that the other one wasn't going to be around for the closing and needed to make it happen anyway.

    Old Rudy needs to spill his guts!

    What Happened to Jake Cefolia? Missing United Executive Case Still Unsolved, One Year Later

    Police and court reports obtained by NBC 5 Investigates showed him signing up for OkCupid, meeting one girlfriend on Bumble in Chicago, dating another woman in San Francisco. Staying at the Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey in California and dining at Hula Grill in Honolulu with a tab of $528.

    But the last purchase Cefolia ever made on his Chase credit card was $59.50 for gas at a Shell station on Butterfield Road near his Elmhurst home in Illinois.
    What Triggered Jake Cefolia's Disappearance?

    On Aug. 6, the day before Cefolia vanished, NBC 5 Investigates learned that Elmhurst police showed up at his house with a search warrant, according to police reports. Detectives' notes show they were there to "search and collect/package evidence." Elmhurst police declined to comment on the investigation, and Cefolia has never been charged with a crime.

    "It’s unlikely that it’s coincidental that he disappears, the day after the search," said retired Chicago homicide detective Richard Schak, who now teaches criminal justice at a local university. "Whatever they were looking for, or whatever they found might have triggered something for him to take off."
    Is Jake Cefolia Out There?

    "Without anything surfacing in 12 months about Jake, I think the likelihood that he’s alive is very remote. Just because something would have surfaced," said Schak. "If you lived that kind of lifestyle, there would be a money trail of some sort."

    Police reports indicate that "Cefolia’s passport, credit cards and financial accounts have not been used or accessed" and there have been "no significant withdrawals before his disappearance" nor has there been "contact with family or friends ever since."

    Well, obviously he was up to something with the police involved. So it's one of two things. Either he went on the lam or whoever he was involved with in illegal activity dispatched of him and hid him well when they heard that the police were on to him.

    It's not surprising that there's no use of his passport or credit cards because that's the whole point of disappearing (duh). No big withdrawals before he went off the radar? The guy was involved in something and probably had a stack of cash in a safe somewhere. You buy a new identity and passport and off you go.

    Skeletal Remains Found Hanging From Tree at Nature Preserve Where Missing Airline Exec Jake Cefolia’s Car Was Abandoned

    A source close to the investigation told CrimeOnline that electrical workers surveying a remote area of the preserve, reportedly far off hiking trails, discovered what appeared to be a human skeleton hanging from a tree. The source said that authorities will compare the jaw of the skull to Cefolia’s dental records to determine a possible match, and indicated that forensic analysts may be working on Friday and possibly through the weekend in an effort to quickly identify the remains — or rule out a connection to Cefolia’s disappearance.

    Remains found at suburban forest preserve identified as missing United executive

    Human remains found at a DuPage County forest preserve have been identified as missing United Airlines executive Jake Cefolia.

    The DuPage County coroner confirmed the identity of the remains Sunday afternoon.

    A cause and manner of death have not been determined, the coroner said.

    A Forensic Odonatologist examined dental records, which led to the positive identification.

    The remains were found south of the youth-group campground at Waterfall Glen on Friday by contractors working at the preserve.

    At the time of discovery, officials said they could not be visually identified.

    I'm actually shocked. I pegged him as too much of a narcissist to go through with a suicide. I'm turning in lots of toasters lately. I'm losing my touch.

    I'm with you. I totally figured he loved himself too much to commit suicide. I really want to know what he was being investigated for before he went missing.

    Yeah. This was one of those that I figured for an "unsolved mysteries" sort of deal.

    What Triggered Jake Cefolia's Disappearance?


    On Aug. 6, the day before Cefolia vanished, NBC 5 Investigates learned that Elmhurst police showed up at his house with a search warrant, according to police reports. Detectives' notes show they were there to "search and collect/package evidence." Elmhurst police declined to comment on the investigation, and Cefolia has never been charged with a crime.

    "It’s unlikely that it’s coincidental that he disappears, the day after the search," said retired Chicago homicide detective Richard Schak, who now teaches criminal justice at a local university. "Whatever they were looking for, or whatever they found might have triggered something for him to take off."
    Police checked on Cefolia’s MetLife insurance policy from United Airlines for $770,000 dated June 1, 2012.

    "Most insurance policies have disclaimers for suicide and that lasts a year or two. It doesn’t negate the insurance, it just means you can’t go buy a policy on Monday and take care of yourself and collect a bunch of money," Schak said. "But you have to be declared legally dead to collect insurance and that could take seven years."

    One year later, whatever trouble Cefolia was in remains a secret, and the man whose been just about everywhere was nowhere to be found.

    It wasn't until Friday that a break in the case was first discovered.

    Human remains were discovered at Waterfall Glen forest preserve.

    DuPage County Forest Preserve Police said they were notified late Friday morning by a contractor at Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve that potential human remains had been discovered in the 700-acre site.

    The contractors were removing invasive species in the area when they came across "human remains hanging from a low hanging tree," said Chief David Pederson with the Forest Preserve District Police.

    The remains were found in an area that had been searched multiple times, but one that has "a dense tree canopy, very thick briars and dense vegetation, and was not near where police found Cefolia’s vehicle parked," Pederson said.
    The coroner has not yet determined a cause and manner of death, according to a release, and the case remains under investigation.

    Police noted that Cefolia was found "hanging by a belt from an uprooted tree." His wallet, driver's license and a backpack with personal items were at the scene, according to Pederson.

    Well, it's definitely him and he could have intentionally chosen a place where he'd be behind brush and not easily discovered. I wonder who his beneficiaries are.

    ETA: I'm still blown away that he actually did this. I seriously didn't think he was the type to go through with it. It makes me really wonder what he was up to because it must have been REALLY bad for him to actually off himself. Child porn?

    I absolutely thought child porn when I heard this. I can't imagine it would be anything else.

    I had always assumed embezzlement, but this is a definite possibility too.

    See, I peg him as the kind if person that would only kill himself over something so shameful and embarrassing that he couldn't ever recover socially from it. Embezzlement is shameful, but forgivable. Child porn? Not so much. They cops seemed to be all over him for something so either way it must have been something pretty large scale.

    Child Porn Inquiry: Airline Exec From Elmhurst Suspected

    Jake Cefolia, the United Airlines executive from Elmhurst whose body was found in October, was under investigation for possession of child pornography, according to police records released Friday.
    According to the report, the investigation involved videos of nude girls 3 to 11 years old, who were engaged in sex acts.

    Shortly after noon Aug. 5, 2020, police showed up at Cefolia's house at 454 S. Rex Blvd. The report said Cefolia denied downloading any child pornography. He said his children would stop by on occasion, but he said he was the only one with access to the Wi-Fi.

    After Cefolia gave passwords to his electronics, he asked whether he should get a lawyer, to which an officer said that was his decision, police said. An officer said he would return Cefolia's cellphones the next day, unless child pornography was found, the report said.

    Jake Cefolia Case: Police Reports Reveal New Clues Into United Airlines Exec's Disappearance

    The release of the report was in response to an NBC 5 Investigates Freedom of Information Act request for all documents in the Cefolia investigation.

    Cefolia’s name is redacted in the report, but his home address, where the search warrant was conducted, is noted. Cefolia was never criminally charged with any crime.

    The items taken from Cefolia's house included a computer laptop, flash drives, an Apple iPad, a PC computer and two iPhones, according to the police inventory noted in the report. The items were taken to the Elmhurst Police Department for evidence submission and the Apple devices were submitted to the DuPage County Digital Forensic Laboratory in Wheaton.

    Police reports also indicate that the child pornography investigation began in July of 2020 when police captured Cefolia’s IP address on a file sharing network offering child pornography files for download. When questioned by officers the day of the search warrant, the report notes he "denied downloading any child pornography."
    Police reports say a "mostly empty bottle of rum and a backpack were nearby." Inside the backpack was a notebook with a note addressed to his two teenagers saying "he was sorry and embarrassed to take the easy way out."

    Well, I might have been losing my touch for a while but I sadly gained it back. At least he took the trash out for us.

    Lots of drama on the Find FB page. People are pissed they put time and energy into searching for someone who ended up being a pedo.
