Authorities have confirmed that Anarae Schunk's body was found around 4:30 p.m. yesterday in Lonsdale, about 35 miles south of where she was last seen alive on the evening of September 21.

According to numerous reports, after a body was found by Rice County workers mowing a ditch, authorities asked Schunk's family to turn over her dental records. The body's ID was confirmed today.

Schunk was a 20-year-old junior at the University of Minnesota. Her ex-boyfriend, 31-year-old Shavelle Chavez-Nelson, has been named a "person of interest" in her disappearance.

Hope all those white women in the Twin Cities who feel like they have to bully someone if they have a black boyfriend see this. Hope we remember all the black on white violence that occurs in the Twin Cities too instead of this stuff of saying it's about girlfriends getting killed.

she - if you look at Rick Kupchella's "Bring Me the News" page, they mentioned she gave him 5k - loan or whatever. That would have been a red flag - YES - the pair will have to pay - for using her money and taking her life, wrongly. :/

Very sad. When I read stories like this I am amazed at how many women(ex-wife, new girlfriend??) are interested in a total loser like the killer in this story. Strange.

another sad loss of life i feel for her and her family and friends.but i hate to say this but when u get involved with the wrong people this is always the result.i know when u want to be with someone u feel accepted but its not worth it most of the time.its better to be lonely than dead.

At least now they can charge those two losers with her murder. Such a stupid, stupid way for a young, bright woman's life to end.

@nondimenticar2 Excuse me? What are you getting at?

I am a 19-year-old white female and I'm dating an older, black man, and I've never had any fear of him. I'm more fearful of the white man who abused me.

@keny1 You apparently are an ignorant and violent bigot. You'd like to see people swinging from trees, asshat? Criminals come in every color. People who think like you are a disease. Prejudice is as deadly as ebola. Stop the hate!
