After 27 years, TV anchor Jodi Huisentruit now ‘gone as long as she was alive’
Jodi Huisentruit was 27 when she disappeared 27 years ago on June 27, 1995.
ST. PAUL -- Television news anchor Jodi Huisentruit was 27 when she disappeared 27 years ago on June 27, 1995.
On this June 27, friends, family and members of FindJodi.com, a website and podcast devoted to solving the case of her disappearance, will gather outside the TV station where she worked, KIMT-TV in Mason City, Iowa, to mark the anniversary.
“It’s a somber date,” said Scott Fuller, a FindJodi team member who works for KAUS-AM/FM in Austin, Minn. “Jodi has now been gone as long as she was alive.”
Personal photos of Huisentruit, a Long Prairie, Minn., native, will be on display at the event. Fuller said he hopes they “will bring some light to who Jodi was in life, and what she meant to those who knew and loved her.”
People also are asked to “Leave A Light On For Jodi” by leaving a porch light on or lighting a candle in her memory during the weekend of June 24-26 and posting photos on social media using the #LightsForJodi hashtag.
“We hope this #LightsForJodi campaign gives everyone a chance to express their concern and remembrances,” Fuller said.
