Ten years ago Tuesday, 16-year-old Julie Holmquist went missing while in-line skating on a country road outside her hometown of Hallock, Minn. A hunter found her body in a watery gravel pit near Lancaster, Minn., three weeks later.

The man authorities believe took Julie and caused her death later killed himself as investigators closed in. But the crime tore at the fabric of life in Hallock and other small towns in the region.

"There was definitely a loss of innocence," said a classmate of Holmquist's, a member of the Kittson Central High School Class of 2000 who lives in Fargo.

"There's still anger and sadness," said another classmate, in Minneapolis. "But the main thing is just missing Julie. It's not fair that she's not here."
