  • Details of Disappearance
    Susan Swedell was last seen on January 19, 1988 at a gas station about a mile from her home in Lake Elmo. Employed by K-Mart in Oak Park Heights, Swedell had frequently received phone calls at work from a man she referred to as "Dale."

    On the night of her disappearance, a snowy evening, she called her mom from K-Mart to let her know she planned on coming home to watch a movie. Before she left work Susan changed into a short skirt, which seemed odd because of the blizzard-like conditions. A short time later she asked a gas station attendant if she could leave her car at the station because she was having car trouble. She then got into another car with a man that was waiting for her. Witnesses describe him as unshaven, tall with shoulder length curly hair, well built and wearing a leather jacket. She has not been heard from or seen since.
