Investigators worked outward from the location of the missing woman’s abandoned car, scouring a trail of digital footage. Her last known sighting was captured on a neighbor's home surveillance video. It shows Kassanndra driving off early on the morning she dropped out of contact. She was newly pregnant and scheduled that day for her first ultrasound appointment, which she missed. It was so out of character, her mother contacted the police and a search began. In a stroke of good fortune, a mass transit train line ran along the street where the car was found, and its dashcam captured a brief glimpse of a person walking from the vehicle. They wore black clothing, a brimmed hat, and blue latex gloves.
