Who Killed Rachel Anthony

Email
Who killed Rachel Anthony? That is the question that has lingered in many minds over the past 16 years. Anthony, 50, disappeared the night of Feb. 27, 2001, at the end of her shift at Ultimate Liquors in Pine River. It was very cold that day and Anthony had started her car to warm it up before her drive home. A police officer discovered the car idling about midnight and upon checking the liquor store, he found the back door unlocked with Anthony’s purse and coat still inside, but no signs of her. Her body was found six weeks later in a ravine near Breezy Point, about 15 miles away off a less traveled road. Many leads were followed, possible suspects were ruled out and still today, no answers on who abducted and murdered an innocent woman. The case remains an open investigation by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Cass County Sheriff’s Office. Spotlight on Crime is offering up to $50,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for Anthony’s death. If anyone knows anything about the case -- whether it be something they don’t think is relevant to the case or not -- they are asked to let the BCA know about it by emailing bcatips@state.mn.us or calling the BCA tip line at 877-996-6222 or the Cass County Sheriff’s Office 218-547-1424 or 1-800-450-2677. The BCA stated, “While we can’t share specific information about the ongoing investigation, we can say that we believe this case can be solved. We know someone has information that could help us solve this case. We investigate every tip we receive and urge anyone with information about what happened to Rachel Anthony to contact us.”Who killed Rachel Anthony?
