Iowa city marks 10th anniversary of TV anchor's disappearance
UPI News Service, 06/26/2005
Residents of Mason City, Iowa, are marking 10 years since the disappearance of Jodi Huisentruit, a 27-year-old TV morning news anchor.
Huisentruit, anchor of KIMT-TV News, disappeared on the morning of June 27, 1995, and the case has remained open, the Mason City Globe Gazette reported Sunday.
"The great hope was always when someone thought they saw her," said JoAnn Nathe, Jodi's sister, who lives in Sauk Centre, Minn. "Now when there's news, it's usually when someone thinks they've found her remains. The dynamic is entirely different."
Amy Kuns, the last person known to have talked to Huisentruit, called her home the morning of the disappearance. Huisentruit said she was running late for her early morning shift at KIMT. She never arrived for work.
"For some reason, the 10-year anniversary has been harder on me," said Kuns, who now works for KTTC-TV in Rochester, Minn. "I'm having a tough time with this."
She said does not know if the case will ever be solved
