    MN - Judy Rush, 56, Columbia Heights, 2 Aug 2007

    http://kstp.com/article/stories/S178476.shtml?cat=1

    There is evidence to support forced entry into her apartment. Additionally, she did not have economic resources to simply disappear.


    Apparently, her apartment was ramsacked. She possessed no driver's license and relied on public transportation. This woman did not voluntarily disappear. No. She's not young and vibrant. She's 56, but her disappearance deserves publicity.

    Judy Lynn Rush is still missing. The blood recently found in her apartment has police wondering whether she is still alive.

    Police searched her Columbia Heights apartment last week and said the scene indicated "a very serious injury or possibly death," according to an affidavit for a search warrant filed Friday in Ramsey County District Court.
    Rush, 56, was reported missing Aug. 22 after relatives and neighbors reported not having seen her in a couple of weeks.

    I see they have a potential suspect whose shoe prints match the ones at the crime scene.

    Looks like L.E. is on the right trail.

    How sad. I hope LE can figure out what is going on soon.

    If she was receiving gov't assistance, doesn't that usually come the first of the month? That is approximately when she went missing.

    I know most people receive their funds electronically, but she might not have had a bank account. Even if she did have an account, she might have taken the cash home.

    I was behind a lady that had to be in her 70's at the bank one day, and she must have had withdrawn $700 in cash and she put it in her purse and walked out. Anyone in the bank line could have just followed her home and robbed her (and worse).

    Possible Clues found...

    http://www.startribune.com/crime/story/1452482.html

    Anoka County investigators have found possible clues in a Wisconsin landfill to the disappearance in August of a Columbia Heights woman whom police suspect may have been killed.

    ....

    He said about 15 deputies and others recently spent days sifting through refuse at a landfill near Rice Lake, Wis., where trash from Rush's building is dumped.
    They found items that are being tested by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, he said. He wouldn't say what items were being tested, but he said some items police expected to find in her apartment were missing and might have been tossed in building trash.







    Doesn't look good....

    This is so sad; 3 weeks before anyone reported her missing. I would like to think that even if I hadn't seen my kids or mom for 3 weeks someone would notice. I hope they find her and whoever is responsible.

    Police are asking for the public's help in finding a person of interest in the case of a woman that has been missing since August.

    Judy Rush, 65, was reported missing on Aug.23 but has not been seen since the first week of August.

    Police said her Columbia Heights apartment appeared to have been partially ransacked and that she may have been the victim of a crime.

    Detectives said they have photos of a man they think could have information about the case.

    The man in the photos has not been identified or located yet, so police are asking that anyone with information call the Anoka County Sheriff's Office at 763-323-5000 or 763-427-1212.

    They have found Judy

    Felon charged in 2007 death of Columbia Heights woman
    Article by: DAVID CHANEN , Star Tribune Updated: April 27, 2011 - 10:46 AM
    The skeletal remains of Judy Rush were found earlier this month in Brooklyn Park
    . Anoka County authorities on Wednesday charged a 25-year-old St. Paul man with the 2007 killing of a 60-year-old Columbia Heights woman whose body was not found until this month.

    The skeletal remains of Judy Rush were found April 8 in Brooklyn Park by a group of high school students on a field trip. Authorities used DNA testing to confirm her identity.

    The charges say Mo Hicks, who has a long criminal history, killed Rush in her apartment bedroom. Police had interviewed Hicks, who was acquainted with the victim, several times in connection with her disappearance.

    Hicks, whose history includes a bank robbery conviction, was being held in the Anoka County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail.

    From February 2012:

    http://www.twincities.com/ci_19936585

    Fiscus met him Aug. 2, 2007, when she went to her mother's apartment in Columbia Heights to pick up her cat. That day - the last time Fiscus saw her mom, Judy Rush, alive - her mother introduced her to a man she had never seen before. His name was Mo Hicks.

    Friday morning, Hicks, 36, of St. Paul, was found guilty of second-degree murder for unintentionally killing Rush...

    Insight into how the crime may have occurred came from one of Hicks' fellow inmates, who testified Hicks told him in prison he had killed Rush by striking her on the head with a hammer after a sexual encounter went awry at her apartment. Hicks reportedly said he then wrapped the body in a sheet and carried it out of the apartment in a hockey bag.
    From April 2012:

    http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/0...ear-old-woman/

    A 36-year-old man was sentenced to 35 years in prison Tuesday for murdering a woman and trying to conceal her remains.

    Anoka County District Court Judge James Cunningham said Mo Savoy Hicks, of New Brighton, acted with “particular cruelty” after he killed Judy Rush, 56, in 2007. Her remains were found four years later in Brookdale Park.
