Every spring, Olmsted County Sheriff's Detective Dave Rikhus makes a trip to the same land south of Byron, looking for an answer to a haunting question: What happened to Linda Jean Anger?

"I've walked the area looking for any kind of a sign," Rikhus said.

But his efforts have turned up nothing.

The last time anyone saw the 40-year-old mother was May 7, 1993. Her ex-husband told authorities he dropped her off at the Olmsted County Courthouse for an appointment with social services. No one has heard from her since.

I came across this woman while I was on the doe network and I came here to see if she had a thread and she does.. except nobody mentioned something I came across may explain who did it and why


Circumstances of Disappearance
Linda Jean Anger was living with her ex-husband, his new wife, and Linda's two sons. Her ex-husband stated he had dropped her off at the Olmstead County Courthouse or Social Services buildings for a morning appointment on May 7, 1993. She did not show up at the appointment and has not been seen nor heard from since. Authorities were not able to confirm that she actually had an appointment.
 
I just found this page, I am Linda's niece and we all still miss her immensely. Her oldest son just became a grandfather. My grandmother passed away with this still burning in her heart. What happened to her and why.
We all know her ex did it. He worked at an animal control and his wife was a nurse. We now believe they drugged her and cremated her where he cremated the animals.
The boys left when the oldest turned 18. He grabbed his younger brother and they moved to another state.

I am so very sorry your family is loving with this pain. I live just a few minutes south of Rochester and this has always been a case I've watched and wondered about.

I am so sorry that your family has lived with this. I'm working on bringing this story back into light. I'm a reporter at KTTC in Rochester, MN. I've reached out to investigators and I would love to talk to family as well. Is this something you would be interested in?
 
Law enforcement still looking for woman in 30-year-old cold case

ROCHESTER, Minn.-- One of Olmsted County's oldest cold cases is still under investigation after 30 years.

Linda Anger, of Rochester was last seen May 7, 1993 at the old Olmsted County Courthouse. Since then, Olmsted County Sheriff's Office investigators have still not come across any leads on Anger's whereabouts.

Olmsted County Attorney, Mark Ostrem says as the case ages, finding evidence becomes harder. He also says what he believes could bring this case to justice.

“Witnesses coming forward with information they know, certainly would be helpful.” he suggests. “And the other thing that helps in many cold cases is just advancing technology. We're all very aware of how DNA has helped in cold cases."

Ostrem says a case like this will never stay closed, and investigators will continue to be hopeful--looking at anger's file with fresh eyes and new tools.

Anyone who has seen or heard information regarding Linda Anger are asked to contact the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office at (507)328-688. You can also report with Crimestoppers at 1(800)-222-8477 or online .

"We have not had any leads in this case," Olmsted County Sheriff's Lt. Malinda Hanson said Wednesday, May 31, 2023, roughly 30 years after Anger's disappearance.

Details of Disappearance​

Linda was last seen at approximately 7:30 a.m. on May 7, 1993. Her children reported that she was inside their family's residence in rural Rochester, Minnesota at the time.

Her ex-husband, Dennis Anger, said he dropped her off for a scheduled appointment with social services at the Olmsted County Courthouse at 8:00 a.m., but it is unclear whether she did in fact have an appointment, and no one saw her either inside the building or in the parking lot. She has never been heard from again.

At the time of her disappearance, Linda was living with Dennis, their two young sons and his new wife; she had recently moved there from Arizona. She was dedicated to her children and hoped to find a residence of her own. She had never mentioned wanting to leave the area or wanting to harm herself.

Dennis is considered a person of interest in Linda's case. Within three days of her disappearance, he and his wife had cleaned out her bedroom at their home. At least one of Linda's sons believes his father had something to do with Linda's disappearance, but Dennis died in 2007 without having ever been charged in his ex-wife's case.

Investigators believe Linda may have been the victim of a homicide. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
