1 min read

This week investigative podcast Uncovering The Truth In Minnesota looks into the second cold case of thier second season, the murder of Rachel Anthony. Anthony was 50 years old when she went missing on Feb. 27, 2001.

Her body was found six weeks later (April 14, 2001) about 15 miles away in a ravine near Breezy Point by horseback riders in their teens. The cause of death was determined to be asphyxia due to homicidal violence.

Rachel Anthony was 50-years-old when she disappeared nearly 20 years ago on the night of Feb. 27, 2001. Her case has yet to be solved.

Rachel was working alone at Ultimate Liquors in Pine River, Minnesota before she disappeared. Around 12 a.m. on Feb. 28, 2001, Pine River Police found Rachel’s car still running in front of the business, but she was not inside. Her coat, purse and keys were found in the vehicle. No merchandise appeared to be taken and no cash was missing from the register. There was no sign of a struggle inside or outside of the store. Investigators suspect Rachel was taken from the store against her will.

Come back next week for part two.
