Connie Ruddy

Homicide:
Connie Ruddy
21 YOA
Ida Grove, Iowa
Ida County
February 10, 1997

Connie Ruddy, a 21-year-old mother of two, vanished from her Ida Grove, Iowa home without a trace on February 10, 1997. Ruddy’s two-year-old and two-month-old children were found alone in the residence, unharmed. On August 31, 1999, more than two years after her disappearance, a man looking for fossils near Ida Grove found a human jawbone in the Boyer River in Crawford County near Dow City. Nothing else was found. Dental records confirmed it was Ruddy’s jawbone, and the former missing persons case was reclassified as a homicide.
