  • Details of Disappearance
    Jessica made a call from her cell phone just before midnight May 10, 2006 saying she was headed to the 120th and Blondo streets area. Jessica had a grey, 2001, Hyudai Accent, 4 Door, which was recovered in Omaha, NE on 16 May 06. The vehicle was found abandoned near Jessica's place of employment.

    On August 7, 2006 Christopher Edwards, Jessica's boyfriend, was accused of her death. Prosecutors have said O'Grady's blood was found on two swords recovered from Edwards' residence as well as on a headboard, mattress, comforter and the ceiling of Edwards' bedroom. Christopher Edwards was prosecuted and successfully convicted for this criminal offense. Edwards was convicted of Murder 2nd Degree and Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony on June 2007, without the presence of a body. O'Grady was never found.

    There have been ubsubstantiated rumors that O'Grady may have been pregnant, but no proof either way has been offered.
