    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    No updates on this that I can find. Nothing on the Police FB page either.

    I think I found her facebook but she hasn't posted since 2011 and only has one friend. He has photos of her and last posted Sept 2013. No mentions of her being missing.

    I always hate the articles that say last seen walking away from home. I don't think it's normal to start walking to Idaho at 9pm.

    Veronica left her family in Montana on April 6, 2014. She is reported to have traveled to Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. Her last known sighting was at a truck stop in Portage, WI in early May.
    Columbia County Crimestoppers posted a report about the sighting:

    https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...19687474868239

    Frisbie stated that they both took showers and got cleaned up at the Petro truck stop in Portage and that with this argument she left. He stated that he bagged up her remaining clothes to give to her but that he could not find her again at the truck stop. He stated that he circled around looking for her but never found her. He eventually headed back towards MN.

    At the time he was driving a blue 2013 Volvo Semi for Freerksen Trucking. The semi driver later got fuel in Oakdale WI at 10:55 am on 05/05/2014. He also stated that he later got a call from someone claiming to be from the NE Ohio DCI stating that they had found her body and that she had been raped and murdered and asked his whereabouts. Checked with Ohio, no such call or contact with her or a body is documented.

    If she did walk away in Portage, WI, she was last reportedly wearing jeans, sandals, turquoise lace tank top, black long-sleeve shirt, black leather jacket, purse, and a black Stetson cowboy hat.
    Veronica is described as 5'8" tall and 170 pounds with graying wavy brown hair and hazel eyes.

    Is her hair still long? The lady in the unidentified pics appears to have short hair, or its pulled back. Sure looks like the same nose and brows.

    Apparently she was pulled out of the river within an hour of falling. Hence the "alive" look. At any rate I think these two women bear a striking resemblance to one another. With the veneers and lack of tattoos on the UID, this should be easy to rule in or out. Has anyone submitted?

    I just emailed the sheriff in Idaho. To me, this is a perfect match... look at the eyebrows... they are almost spot on!
    In case the rambling text doesnt give it away... all posts are my opinion only and only for use on WebSleuths!
