The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department is hoping the 16th anniversary of the disappearance of a 40-year old Argyle (mn) woman generates new leads in the case. Veronica Safranski has not been seen since leaving a Halloween party at a bar in Warren (mn) on October 26th of 1996. Convicted sex offender Kevin Skjerven was questioned by law enforcement but was never charged in the disappearance. Safranski’s belt was found three miles from Skjerven’s home in rural Newfolden (mn). Sheriff John Novacek says his office will occasionally get a tip about the case but nothing substantial. Novacek says given the lapse in time it’s doubtful there’s a lot of physical evidence out there -- but you never know. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Masrhall County Sheriff’s Department at 218-745-5411.
