    Heartbreaking!! So glad she has now been Identified.

    The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the murder of a Minneapolis woman whose remains were found in Gooseberry Falls State Park. Investigators believe she was murdered near the time she disappeared.

    On May 6, 2014, an off-duty Lake County Sheriff’s Office employee discovered the skeletal remains of a woman in a rarely-traveled part of the park. Based on examinations of the remains investigators determined that she was a murder victim.

    In August 2014, BCA scientists matched DNA from the remains to that of family members who provided DNA in 2013 as part of the BCA’s unidentified remains effort. The DNA identified the victim as Cassandra Rhines of Minneapolis. Rhines had been missing since June 1985. She was 19 when she went missing.

    “Cassandra Rhines was last heard from in June 1985, when she called a friend to confirm her attendance at her Goddaughter’s birthday party in Minneapolis the next day,” said Lake County Sheriff Carey Johnson. “She never showed, and was never heard from again.”

    Anyone with information about Cassandra Rhines is urged to contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at 218-834-8385 or the BCA at 651-793-7000, 877-996-6222, via email at bca.coldcase@state.mn.us or via the BCA Tip Form attached to this story.

    Reports say when Cassandra vanished she was living in an apartment complex and may have been working as an exotic dancer. It’s possible she could have been involved in prostitution as well.

    Lake County Sheriff Carey Johnson spoke out to Valley News Live and said, “Cassandra Rhines was last heard from in June 1985, when she called a friend to confirm her attendance at her Goddaughter’s birthday party in Minneapolis the next day. She never showed, and was never heard from again.”

    Although her family and friends may not have known everything about what she was doing, police say it is possible she could have been living with a guy at the time of her death (pictured above). Authorities want to figure out who this guy was.

    If you know anything, or can help with this case in any way, please contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Office directly: 218.834.8385
