River Body Likely Missing Faribault Woman

brittney landsverk River Body Likely Missing Faribault Woman

Three months after their daughter disappeared in the Cannon River, a Faribault couple feel they have closure.

Rice County officials say a positive ID will be made today on a woman’s body recovered from the Cannon River yesterday morning. But Ron Landsverk already suspects the body is that of his 20 year-old daughter Brittney.


Brittney was with three other people when their car went into the river in April. The other three survived. Since then an exhaustive search has been conducted. A passerby spotted the body yesterday morning. Officials believe recent storms may have dislodged the body. The clothing matches what Brittney was wearing when she disappeared in the water.
