Mandy’s Funeral Information
When: Sunday, Nov. 10th – 3pm
Where: Grace Church – Eden Prairie
All our welcome to attend
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The family of Mandy Matula is spending Monday balancing a sense of closure with unspeakable grief.
After months of wondering what happened to her, they’re spending the day visiting the site where her body was found. Matula went missing in May, and last seen with her ex-boyfriend, David Roe.
Shortly after she went missing, Roe showed up to the Eden Prairie Police Department to be questioned in her disappearance. But before they could talk to him, Roe shot himself in a car in the police department’s parking lot. He died two days later.
Over the weekend, a hiker discovered her body buried in a shallow grave while walking through Mississippi River Park in Stearns County near Sartell. Investigators said they believe Roe shot and killed her in Eden Prairie, then buried her there.
Now, tucked away inside a wooded area, just 300 feet from the main road inside Mississippi River Park North of Sartell, sits a memorial for a young woman.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Matula family.
