I had forgot about her until I saw the article the other day. Feb 7, 2005 9:00 pm US/Central Minneapolis (WCCO) The murder of Anne Barber Dunlap is one of Minnesota's most infamous unsolved crimes. The homicide unit of the Minneapolis police department is going back and looking at all of its cold cases since the 1950s, as new technology and fresh information can bring breakthroughs. The unit has more than 800 unsolved cases, and many are unforgettable. One involves 31-year-old Anne Barber Dunlap, who was found murdered in 1996. "These cases strike to us personally, on a human level, we never forget these people," said Lt. Lee Edwards, who runs the homicide department for the Minneapolis police. Dunlap was a successful Pillsbury marketing manager and a long-distance runner. In 1995, Anne and her husband, Brad Dunlap, were living with her parents in Minneapolis while they built their dream home in Medina, Minn. The couple had recently raised Anne Dunlap's life insurance policy to $1 million.

None has generated more questions than the brutal stabbing of Anne Barber Dunlap on the last weekend of 1995. It remains one of the highest profile murders in Twin Cities history. People still cant forget the images from this crime. They remember the news videotape of police inspecting her abandoned car in a Kmart parking lot as her husband waited nearby. People ask me if he is still a suspect and wonder if her parents are still convinced of his innocence. At the time she was killed, Anne lived with her husband, Brad Dunlap, in her parents home near Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. The young couple was building their dream home in suburban Medina. Anne was a successful Pillsbury marketing manager and an avid runner who had many friends. Anne was last seen alive on the Saturday of New Years weekend. Her husband reported her missing to police the next day, on Dec. 31, saying she had never come home from a shopping trip to the Mall of America. Friends fanned out all over the area, searching for Anne. Two days after she disappeared, Annes friends found her car in the Kmart parking lot on Lake Street in Minneapolis. It was towed to the police garage, where Annes body was found in the trunk, her throat slashed, her chest repeatedly stabbed. The tip of a knife was still stuck in her head. Police quickly focused on Brad Dunlap as the prime suspect. Annes murder became one of the most highly covered crime stories in recent years. News crews camped out round the clock at Annes parents home, often followed Brad Dunlap and - night after night - provided coverage of even the smallest development in the case. Eventually, the news coverage subsided, and Brad Dunlap left Minneapolis to build a new life, out of the glare of the media spotlight. As the 10th anniversary of Annes murder approaches, no one has ever been charged in her murder. Minneapolis homicide investigators say Brad Dunlap remains their prime suspect. I have interviewed Brad Dunlap twice - most recently in January 2005 - since he moved from Minnesota to Arizona. Dunlap says police have not followed up on other leads and insists he is the victim. He has remarried, is building a new house in Arizona and wants the media to leave him alone. Ok these were juat a few things I found when searching today. Curious to hear your thoughts on this case.
