Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Rachael Anderson left her home in Clarkston and never returned. Rachael was last seen at 2216 South Main, Suite B-1 in Moscow, Idaho. Her vehicle was recovered at Dynamart station on North/South Highway in North Lewiston, Idaho. Her cell phone and purse was found in the vehicle.
Just before Rachael disappeared she had been receiving text messages and phone calls in which the caller would hang up. She filed several complaints with the police, and they were working with her to find out who was stalking her. Her vehicle tires were slashed in front of her home, and the back windshield of her vehicle was broken in broad daylight at the parking lot of her employer. Rachael also filed a harassment complaint against her estranged husband, Charles Capone, whom she was divorcing. Shortly after Racheal Anderson's disappearance, Capone was arrested on unrelated federal weapons charge. He served time for that, then was charged with assaulting Racheal Anderson. The Asotin County Sheriff’s Office named Capone a person of interest in his wife’s disappearance, but investigators did not have enough evidence to press charges.
Racheal was reported missing when she did not show up at work. Foul play is suspected.
In 2015 Charles Capone was convicted of killing his estranged wife Rachael Anderson at his auto repair shop in Moscow. He recieved a life sentence with no chance at parole. According to testimony during the trial, Capone strangled Anderson and then threw her body off the Red Wolf Bridge. Charles Capone has maintained his innocence. The jury also found Capone guilty of failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer of a death and conspiracy to commit failure to notify a coroner or law enforcement officer of a death. For each of those charges, Capone will serve 20 year fixed sentences on top of that life sentence.
