    UT - Anne Kasprzak, 15, body found in Jordan River, 10 March 2012

    (snips)
    Draper police Sunday night were trying to piece together what happened to a girl found dead in the Jordan River and who might have killed her.
    Investigators have identified the girl, who is under the age of 18, but Draper police Sgt. Chad Carpenter said police are withholding her exact age and name until all of her family members are notified. The girl is from the South Valley area, Carpenter said, and her death is being treated as a homicide.

    At first investigators weren’t sure who the girl was, but the girl’s mother saw media reports about the discovery of the body and called police. Carpenter said the mother feared it might be her daughter because she hadn’t heard from her "for a bit."

    I would be very interested to know if Anne was "reported as a runaway" by her family.
    Or if she was "reported as missing but listed as a runaway."

    I'd also be interested to know when Anne actually went missing, if it was prior to being reported on Saturday. In other words, how long has it actually been since mom saw her daughter?

    They also are asking the public to call in if they saw the victim or had any contact with her any time after 7:45 p.m. Saturday.

    A news conference was planned for Monday at 3:30 p.m.

    --according to this article:

    http://connect2utah.com/news/top-sto.../vid_664.shtml

    Authorities continue to investigate what exactly happened and why, but they are calling this case suspicious and a potential homicide.

    A supervisor at the trail told 2News he had spoken with Anne’s father --who said she had runaway over the weekend.
    my opinion...........and i happen to agree with it.....

    Draper police holding press conference right now on 15 year old girl found dead in the Jordan River. Anne Kasprzak was identified today.

    Chad Carpenter says they are looking for anyone who spent time with her to come forward. No word on cause of death.

    Carpenter says she did have injuries but won't go into what those injuries are.

    Carpenter says they are trying to piece together a timeline. PD confirms she was reported a runaway, but don't know if she had boyfriend.

    Draper police ask anyone with information to call 801-840-4000.

    I wonder if she didn't come home because she was murdered and that led to her being reported as a runaway.

    A 15-year-old runaway found dead Sunday in the Jordan River has been identified as 15-year-old Anne Grace Anne Kasprzak of Riverton.
    Kasprzak was reported missing on Saturday night, said Draper police Sgt. Chad Carpenter. Her parents last saw her at 7:45 p.m. that night at their home near 12800 South and 2500 West.

    In my opinion, parents whose 15 year old didn't come home wouldn't report the missing 15 year old as runaway unless they had some reasons to believe she in fact did run away.
    Just my opinion

    Police identify 15-year-old girl found dead in Jordan River

    --video----Press Conference --9:54 @ link

    Carpenter said Anne's case is being handled as a "suspicious death investigation" that is being treated as a homicide. However, he said he did not have results of a Monday autopsy and did not know whether the state medical examiner was classifying her death as a homicide, suicide or accidental.


    Yet Carpenter noted that investigators believe her death was an "isolated act" and not random, saying joggers and other recreationists shouldn't have to worry about a killer on the loose in that area. Carpenter, however, declined to comment on why police believe the incident was isolated.


    When asked to describe whether there were any obvious signs of trauma on Anne's body, Carpenter would only say, "She did have injuries," but refused to elaborate or say what may have caused them.


    Anne was reported as a runaway on Saturday. The last time she was seen was at her mother's house in Riverton about 7:45 p.m. Carpenter said he did not have any information Monday about why police classified her as a runaway.

    Some statements by LE about not knowing the COD, MOD, previous trouble at the home, and how quick mom reported Anne as a runaway make me think that this could possibly be a suicide.

    Although an autopsy was performed Monday morning, police had not yet learned the cause of Kasprzak’s death or whether it was deemed to be a homicide, Carpenter said. He characterized the death only as "suspicious" and declined to discuss any leads.
    He also would not discuss the circumstances of her parents’ report Saturday night to the Unified Police Department that Kasprzak had run away. UPD Lt. Justin Hoyal also would not comment on that report, or on previous police calls to the girl’s home, near 12800 South and 2500 West.

    ETA: a poster makes a comment about Anne previously having problems and living in a group home for a few months.

    Interesting.

    The girl's stepmother, Jennifer Kasprzak, said Monday that family members believed Anne had just gone for a walk Saturday night but began to worry when she didn't answer her phone or respond to text messages. Family members then used GPS to track the location of the teen's cellphone.
    Kasprzak said Anne first seemed to be moving slowly away from an area near her mother's Riverton home, but then the tracking indicated that her location changed more rapidly, as if she had been traveling in a car. The last tracked location was near the area where police would would later locate one of her shoes.

    Saturday night, Kasprzak said family members searched that area but found nothing. They assumed that her phone battery had died in that area. They continued to search for her until about 5 a.m. Sunday, she said.

    Sounds like I can scratch the suicide theory off my list. So were the gunshots heard coming from the family home or the trail a mile away? Hmmmmm. Family reported her missing very quickly. If the sounds of gunshots are related, then all this transpired quickly from 7:45 to 9:35PM

    Police won’t say how Anne was murdered but two women ABC 4 spoke with say they heard something Saturday night.

    Chris Farnsworth lives near the Jordan River Parkway Trail. “We were watching television around 9:30 pm and we heard two gun shots,” said Farnsworth. Sharon Barlow lives about a mile away, just across the street from Kasprzak’s home. Barlow said, “I was just getting my grandchildren asleep in my bedroom and just thought I heard a gunshot…I grabbed my phone and it was 9:35 pm.”
