Nearly a year after Terry Kimball’s disappearance, Scott Kimball’s father, Virgil Kimball, receives an e-mail at his Idaho home from firstname.lastname@example.org.
“In the e-mail, Terry claimed to be living in old Mexico with a woman named Ginger and added that Ginger liked living in Mexico,” FBI agent Johnny Grusing would later write in an affidavit. “Virgil recalled that supposedly Ginger never wanted to return to the United States, so Terry probably would not either.”
Police would trace the account to Scott Kimball’s computer two years later.

FBI Special Agent Jonathan Grusing calls Howard Emry at home in Payette, Idaho, and asks to speak to his daughter, LeAnn.
“She’s been missing for nearly five years now,” Emry replies.
He tells the agent he fears LeAnn was killed back in January 2003.
Find “Hannibal,” he says. “That’s who murdered my daughter.”
LeAnn Emry’s family holds her memorial service at Payette Church of the Nazarene in Payette, Idaho, just a few weeks before getting her remains back from the FBI.
Howard Emry remembers his daughter as a smart student who loved animals.
He says LeAnn’s murder “taught me the lesson of forgiveness.”
“I still have moments of sadness for what happened to LeAnn because I will always miss her, but God has given me the strength to forgive the man who caused this grief,” he says.
