Anna Marie Korynta was, by all accounts, a pretty, outgoing young woman with dozens of friends who was liked by almost everyone that met her.


So, it was shocking, when the 19-year-old Fisher, Minn., native was found brutally stabbed to death in her basement apartment in downtown Grand Forks during the early morning hours of May 11, 1987.

With each passing year, that shock vanishes into mystery as Korynta's killer has remained at large.
