Why Was Rachel Murdered and Who is Responsible?
February 27, 2011

Rachel Anthony of Pequot Lakes disappeared February 27, 2001, from her place of work in Pine River. On April 13, 2001 her body was found in Breezy Point the victim of asphyxia due to homicidal violence.

Rachel was working alone at Ultimate Liquors in downtown Pine River, preparing to close the store. As it was a frigid night of 19 degrees below zero Rachel started her Ford Escort parked in front of the building to warm it up and locked the front door. About 1 a.m. on Feb. 28, 2001, Pine River Police found Rachel’s’ car still running in front of the business, but she was not inside. Her coat, purse and keys were found in the store. No merchandise appeared taken and no cash was missing from the register. There was no sign of a struggle inside or outside of the store. Investigators suspect Rachel was taken from the store against her will.

Rachel’s body was found on April 13 by horseback riders in a ditch off Nelson Road in Breezy Point. To this day the person or persons who murdered Rachel remain at large.

The daughters of Rachel Jessica Winch and Tricia Lehr say that “Ten years ago this happened and to this day it remains on (our) family’s mind. Once in a while my sister or I will pull out one of the news articles and it still brings us great sadness. To have our mother taken away from us, to not see our children grow up, to not be there for us when we needed our mom. Not a day goes by that we don’t think of her and wish that she could be with us. We still hold hope that justice will be found and want to remind everyone that if you know anything to please (come forward).”

Dave Bjerga, of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) states that “We still believe it was someone who has connections to the (Pine River) area. It wasn’t someone just passing through.  There’s been no information that takes away from that theory at all.”

People who come forward with information that helps solve this case can qualify for rewards that have been posted.  Local residents and businesses in the area of the crime have offered a $10,000 reward. The Spotlight on Crime fund at the BCA offers a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.  Crime Stoppers of Minnesota offers a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest of the person or persons responsible for Rachel’s abduction and murder.

Crime Stoppers also offers the means to come forward and stay anonymous.

Pine River Police Chief Josh Ebert says “We’re still hopeful that somebody out there knows something and will come forward with information. It absolutely isn’t gone from people’s minds.”
