    Details of Disappearance

    Case was last seen on July 9, 1988 in Spanish Fork, Utah. She left a company party with her boyfriend and went to a private party. Case and her boyfriend, Michael I. Kufrin, were seen arguing at the second party. They left the gathering together and Case has never been heard from again.

    Foul play is suspected in Case's disappearance. She was employed at the Ensign-Bickford Co. explosives plant in Medford, Utah in 1988. Authorities believe Kufrin, who now lives in Illinois, may have been involved in her case. He was charged with theft after Case went missing, but he has never been charged in connection with her disappearance. Kufrin told authorities Case contacted him several times after she went missing, but he did not know her whereabouts. He has been very uncooperative in the investigation.

    In 2005, the Deseret Morning News reported that Case's body had been found. The report was untrue and the newspaper later printed a retraction. Case's disappearance remains unsolved. Investigators believe she may be buried in Utah or Nevada.
