    Details of Disappearance

    Boyd was last seen in Rupert, Idaho on December 20, 1988. She called her father on the phone that day and sounded upset. He went to her apartment and found the door ajar, Christmas music playing, and Boyd missing. Her purse and Christmas presents for her children were on the table. It appeared she had been interrupted while wrapping the gifts.

    Hikers found Boyd's gray Ford sedan at the base of the Twin Sisters formation in the City of Rocks in March 1989. It looked as if the vehicle had been there for a long time. The driver's side door was unlocked and cigarettes, Boyd's belt was on the ground nearby. There was also a pair of aviator sunglasses which her family says weren't hers. Inside the car, police found nine empty cans of Coors Light beer, an empty bottle of Nytol sleeping pills, and a makeup case containing cross-tops, a type of amphetamine. No further examination was made. The car was towed and given back to the bank that held its title.

    Just before Boyd vanished. police issued a warrant for her arrest for theft; she was suspected of stealing almost $1,000 from a local man. Investigators aren't sure whether her disappearance is related to the warrant. Boyd left behind three sons. Her family describes her as a dedicated mother who didn't travel much. At the time of her disappearance, she lived in and managed apartments at the corner of Ninth and A Streets, and worked the night shift at Magic Valley Foods. Her case remains unsolved.

    Maybe Identified as Norine Boyd/DNA pending.

    Better reading with more detail of the situation below. Homicide OR suicide. Tough life, involved in drugs, took out a $6,000 dollar loan right before she vanished (that $ was never recovered). The bank towed away the car when it was found 3 months after she disappeared, so no evidence was taken.

    Poor woman. It sounds like her life had really hit rock bottom.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    I am not sure how long DNA takes. Both cases...the UID and Norine's are in Namus.

    Did they say why it looked like a suicide?

    Reading the circumstances of Norine's disappearance it sounds like a homicide.
