    NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. - New evidence was released Thursday morning in the Joleen Cummings case inlcuding interviews with Kimberly Kessler, the suspect accused of murdering the missing mother. 

    Kessler is originally from Butler County, Pa., but was living in Florida under the name Jennifer Sybert, which authorities believe she took from a woman who died decades ago and is buried in a Butler cemetery. 

    She's accused of kidnapping and killing Joleen Cummings, a mother of three, last year.

    Some of the newly released evidence was found in St. Johns County, Florida and inside Cummings' home. 


    Our sister station, Action News Jax, reached out to investigators to learn more about what role the home may have played in the disappearance of Cummings. 

    Investigators also released new photos of Kessler working and a video interview from May of 2018 where she discusses the role her son played in her life. 

    According to that interview, losing her child in a protective services case was heartbreaking.
