To all interested,
It is believed that Dru Sjodin's body was found around the Crookston area some time today. Law enforcement is currently gathering more information and a press conference will be at 3:00 p.m.

God bless Rusty (Whiskers Guide Service), all other law enforcement involved and all of the volunteers helping.

Looking at it one way, it's a crying shame that we have creeps that will do this type of thing. Another way to look at it, maybe now her family and friends can put some sort of closure to this.

It was dru that was found.. the coverage is on fox news.

I just want to thank, and honor ALL those people that NEVER gave up hope and continued to search even when this got glim.

Now that dru is found, im sure her family and friends will now be able to rest knowing dru is now in a better place.

god bless to everyone, and my prayers are with family and friends...

Again, just want to honor all that never gave up.


I also ask the moderator to post this thread to all forums in FM...

My thoughts and prayers go out to Dru's family and friends. This is a very sad day but I hope it brings closure for everyone.

Its time to let our criminal justice system do its work and I hope justice comes quickly for Mr. Rodriguez.

Although my heart is heavy with the sadness of this situation...part of me is overwhelmed by how people responded.....its great living in this part of the country... where people come together and help each other in the darkest times.

The problem is they will only lock this creep up and forget about him. They need a better solution. This kind of thing tears me up.

When I watched the coverage on this case last fall I was struck by the sudden sense of mortality that her sorority sisters showed. Suddenly they were no longer ten feet tall and bullet proof, like most 18-22 year olds with their lives ahead of them tend to be.

Then there was the rash of adbuction hoaxes in the region. Stores sold out of pepper spray and in my community self defense classes couldn't keep up with demand. The local student who babysits for me asked me to teach her to shoot because her uncle had bought her a gun!! She didn't want a gun so I told her to give it back and I bought her a personal alarm.

This sort of thing victimizes everyone. Right now I hope the media gives the family some space and I wonder where they will ever find a jury.

Thank you all for your warmest thoughts..

I only did my part as best I could.. As well as did every one else that helped.. I spent more time on the water sice the ice let out than I think the last two summers put together..I think I almost wore out the gas tank on my boat.

I believe that all the prayers and thoughts of Dru helped us bring this to a close..

If there is anything good that came out of this it is the way the Legal system is now looking at Repete offenders and Hight level offenders when released.. Even violence crimes between men and women.. The courts are dealing with them to the upmost..

Believe it or not, the Media also is a big help.. With out them helping to keep the story alive, such cases as this can so easly be swept under the rug and forgotten.. Even with the big news over East, they still kept on top of this local tragity.

I spent much time with Dru'e Dad over the last few weeks.. That man is a saint.. I'm not so sure I could have conducted myself so coltrolled as he and his family have through all of this.... . My hats off them......

I'm not so sure I will ever be able to look at the river and this area the same ever agian with out saying a prayer and thinking of them..............

Scoot

Excuse my ignorance here- I was out of town over the weekend and didn't get my hands on a paper last night. Sounds like her body was found in the Red Lake River? Is that right?
This mess has stuck with me for quite a while now, like it has for a lot of people. God bless Rusty and everyone who stuck with the recovery efforts.

      bump give ice reports if you can. just don't go on any ice to give a report, be safe.   I know my 300 acre lake in aitkin froze  over last weekend, but ice depth could vary greatly this time of year.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Anyone know of the lake is froze over? Or how much ice is on the lake if it is?

      I’ll be out looking tomorrow... Have a spot in mind that I’m optimistic about. Which direction from downtown were you?

      Got the hangers today and really like them. I did have to drill a slot so they would work but easy peasy. The metal can be bent a bit to get the angle wanted. Moved the turkey fans to a different room and centered the 3 euros. I like the way it ended up.     New Age Taxidermy Head Honcho European Mounts on Amazon Smile

      The holidays are coming to the Governor’s Residence! Foresters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota harvested the official state Christmas tree Nov. 16 from the Nemadji State Forest. The tree, which is approximately 60 years old, will decorate the Governor’s Residence in St. Paul. “This year’s tree is absolutely gorgeous—tall, full, and almost perfectly shaped,” said Jean Mouelle, the DNR forester who selected this year’s tree. “It’s an impressive example of a balsam fir.” Each year, DNR staff chooses the Governor’s Christmas tree from one of Minnesota’s 59 state forests. Although the tree is always harvested on the Friday before Thanksgiving, the search for the perfect tree begins months beforehand. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. The tree also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped, and where foresters can easily remove it from the forest and load it onto a trailer. The tree will be set up at the Governor’s Residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, and lit Monday, Nov. 26. Information about viewing the tree can be found at www.mn.gov/admin/governors-residence/tours/schedule. Half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota each holiday season, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees provide an environmentally friendly decorating option during the holidays because they store carbon during their lifespan and can be chipped for mulch when the season is over.

      Should get the hangers today and will post info. I see that mountain Mikes has them also. Built to fit in the hole in back. The ones I ordered are for the bone skull so hopefully, dont have to send them back. Just got Marks done.  16 inch inside. Mine is 15 1/4. Not monsters but pretty neat. Marks biggest so far.

      I typically mount with a wire hidden behind the brain cavity routed through holes in the plaque to a screw behind the plaque.   Curious about this angled hanger, it tilts the nose of the skull away from the wall? Do you have a link? I like that idea, might have to rig something up when my euro is ready.

      Was around both lakes yesterday and they appear to be locked up. Shouldn't be long now.
    • eyeguy 54
      I hate when I am walking back to vehicle and they have roosted partway and I didnt know it, then they explode and I freak. LOL

      Bow hunting the other day I had a flock of about 20 come in at last light to roost in a nearby tree. No way a deer was going to come in with all that racket! It was kind of odd to see them hop from tree to tree but at the same time cool to see! Graceful and quiet they were not!
