Washington County Sheriff
Authorities retrieved a body from the St. Croix River early Saturday afternoon, just north of downtown Stillwater. The body was found in the area where police have been searching for Abbey Russell, a 24-year-old Stillwater woman who hasn’t been seen since last Saturday.
Abby Russell, 24, was last seen at her house around midnight, near the intersection of Poplar Street and Highway 95. She’s described as 5’7″, 150 pounds with shoulder-length brown hair and green eyes.
A sexual assault suspect turned himself into police Friday night, authorities say, after a Washington County Sheriff’s chaplain recognized the suspect as being one his of church parishioners.
