    I am saddened that I could not remember the names of those guys that are rumoured to have been responsible for her demise. But I do remember the number of guys that are rumoured to be her killers. Three. One has died due to vessal in leg. I and my brothers fixed a car for one of them. In red lake.

    Im Sorry it took me this long to actually say what I remember. I was 14 years old and I remember going to a party and seeing John Demsey Hunter driving up in his mothers road runner car, and there was long weeds and folage hanging off the back bumper. I asked what is up with all the stuff hanging off the back bumper? He replied oh I hit a dog by the hospital, so I put it in the car and drove it out to the field by the hospital~ but the hospital did not have folage like that! And soon after that him and his brother eddie and mom Glenda risland, took off to Arizona. They left furniture and belongings in the house like they were running from something. This all happened with in days of the murder and finding her body. He lived right next store to the man Bobby Sampson, Who found her body on Scibner hill. This has bothered me for 26 years~ now I live on the same road that he lived on and I have had dreams of her telling me to say something! I have been afraid if what if im wrong? BUT! I think im right! I will do what ever I have too to help her family~
