Cops: Body of missing Minnesota college student Anarae Schunk found

ROSEMOUNT, Minn. (AP) - A body found in a ditch south of Minneapolis was identified Tuesday as a University of Minnesota student who was last seen with her ex-boyfriend 10 days ago, the same night he allegedly shot another man outside a bar, police said.

The Hennepin County medical examiner's office confirmed that the body found Monday was that of 20-year-old Anarae Schunk, according to Rosemount police.

Schunk was last seen on Sept. 22 with her ex-boyfriend at a bar in Burnsville, a city about 20 miles south of Minneapolis. The ex-boyfriend, Anthony Lee Nelson, is charged with fatally shooting a man outside the bar the same night.

Schunk went to Nina's Grill with Nelson, who has a long criminal record, and his current girlfriend, Ashley Conrade. Schunk reconnected with her old boyfriend in hopes of recovering a $5,000 loan he had never repaid, according to her family and friends.

Her brother, Tyson Schunk, said police requested dental records late Monday night so a medical examiner could determine if the body found near Lonsdale was his sister. The body was found about 20 miles from where his sister was last seen, he said.

Nelson, 31, is charged with fatally shooting a man during a fight in the parking lot of the bar the night Schunk disappeared. Witnesses told police that Nelson was upset with the man, Palagor Jobi, for talking to Conrade and that they exchanged words before Jobi punched him. Nelson then shot Jobi eight times, according to the complaint.

Conrade told investigators that Schunk went with them back to her Rosemount townhouse, police said. However, neither Nelson nor Conrade has been charged in Schunk's disappearance.

Conrade is charged with aiding an offender after police say she harbored Nelson before he was arrested last week in Jobi's death.

Ok he has a long criminal record, what was he doing out on the streets?, he should have been in jail, this is what is wrong with the judicial system today and this is proof that tougher laws will never stop convicted felons of getting their hands on guns, maybe this time he will be put where he belongs, on death row never to see the light of day again and if his girlfriend had anything to do with it she should be placed there as well, better yet make an example out of them and bring back public hanging because criminals aren't scared of the system anymore due to all these ambulance chasing lawyers that weaken the system, maybe there should be a new law that if a criminal goes out and commits more crime, the lawyer that got him off should swing right beside him. I would like to know how most of them sleep at night knowing they helped a career criminal go free to commit more crime.

Sometimes you just have got to let go of the money though it's unjust and shouldn't be. We all make these kind of decisions that we look back on with anger and mostly disgust at ourselves for trusting the wrong people. It's about the principle (and the money) when you try to get it back. However, though it's a bitter pill to swallow, sometimes you just have to let the money go. This woman's life was well worth more than the 5K this scumbag ripped off. He was a loose cannon and a conman. She got taken. Have the strength to walk away. It hurts, it's an indignity, but we must ask, "who is going to ask for 5k in the first place?" It's easy to get pulled in, lied to, and we want to help. So when the good deed gets punished, somehow we have to weigh everything and know that down the road justice will be served, but that we don't have to be a part of that. A College course can cost about that much, and can't teach you as much. Some people are psychopaths.. Losing money isn't the end of the world. When dealing with low life forms, we need to learn the lesson and walk away even if only with our life. Hopefully this lovely woman did not die in vain. She came in contact with pure evil. Maybe some other victim out there will see her example and realize that no money in the world is worth taking the chance that you might lose your life. Trust your gut, trust the facts, and be strong enough to walk away (run if you have to).

Where in the article did say what color the man was. I also agree that she knew his record, say good buy to your money and move on I did. At least don't go alone. In this day and age you really have watch your back on everything you do.

Everyone this is a twenty something year old girl, does anyone remember being this age, and how much we did not know about life? Many people will pick someone who is not the best even the worst of the bunch, it is so sad! This does not go for any one race women and men will pick the bottom of the barrel!

Her family may read these post have some respect for them and her memory!!
