A few days after the disappearance, police found one of her shoes across the Red Lake River in Crookston, Minnesota, under a bypass.
She was face down and naked below the waist, hands tied behind her back.
Rope and remnants of a plastic bag encircled her neck. TV crews brought in satellite trucks that beamed daily images of Sjodin, who the media dubbed "everyone's daughter, everyone's sister."

Officers discovered small blood splatters in the back seat of his car and a knife in the trunk matching the sheath found near Sjodin’s vehicle.
Then, in early spring, after five months of searching on both sides of the river, a retired cop and police reservist discovered Sjodin’s body in a ravine outside Crookston.
