just curious if anyone knows anything on this case from 2002...I've checked the newspapers and such and the last article I can find is from 2003 when the case changed from "missing person" to "homicide".
...Seems like she has just been forgotten!!
sad for her

Claudia was a lovely woman and I still think of her often.
I know they did say it was murder but they never released how she actually died. You can bet your ass if she was a rich woman though they would have hunted down her killer a long time ago.
It is a sad , sad case and the sheriffs dept should be ashamed of thereself! They did not give a shit about this woman or there would have been an on going investigation. I know for a fact that there was solid information given to them that they NEVER followed up on. I know this because I know who gave this information and they brushed it aside like it was not a big deal. Karma is a b*tch though and I hope that it comes back to haunt a certain officer who was one of the investigators for not listening to what people were telling him.

Unfortunately she has not only been forgotten, but the family has to rely on a lazy, uncaring, unskilled sheriff's office to investigate & bring her MURDERER to justice. Neither of which they will ever do. I can tell you this, as long as you have the sheriff & sheriff's deputies that are currently in office....this case will Not Be Solved! They could care less about investigating this or any other major case in this county. It's really sad to say, but that is what happens when citizens elect people that can talk the talk but could care less about walking the walk.
This must be Rick Cook......or maybe his wife ??????

Well regardless of who posted, it does seem that something's going on, and it's just crazy to me! Claudia's life was just as important as anyone else's and should be treated as such!! This happened in 2002, and the last bit of information was when the remains found were positively identified as hers and her death was officially ruled a homicide, that was in May of 2003!! There were leads AND suspects, according to Rick Cook's statement in the Statesman at that time...so why has there been nothing since? Do they have an idea of who did this to her? Are they still keeping it hush-hush to avoid "tainting" the investigation? Or is there even an investigation at all??

And he has a lot of room to talk. Was he not one of the deputies (the Chief Deputy) when Claudia turned up missing and when she was found?

You bet he was. Looks like he couldn't do the walkedy walk either!

It's so sad though! Someone can just disappear from their home in a small town like this, then be found murdered, and no one cares? Has there ever been anyone even picked up and questioned about what happened to her, no suspects or what?

You bet your ass that if that was my mother I wouldn't stop a day until I knew who, where, when and how that this all happened. Lets face it people there is no perfect crimes. I don't care how careful someone is there is someone or something overlooked in all of this. And if it was my loved one I,d contact anyone and everyone that could help me. Even if it meant contacting unsolved mysteries, or any other show that could shed some light on this matter. Remember there is still many things that could still be done. But we as a whole community must pull togather and do something. If our law enforcement are not willing to go back and review this case. Then we need to get a REWARD fund started and keep it growing. Remember money talks and bullshit walks. So lets not let a guilty person or persons walk free. If for nothing else for the little girl who needs and deserves closure to this.

I agree with you, someone knows something and it's sad to say it but money does talk. I just can't understand how or why Stoddard County would not be going out of their way to solve this case.. she was last seen alive in Bernie, found near Puxico, both in this county... it makes me sick, She and her daughter deserve so much better than this!!

I wonder just how long it would take to find out who had done this if she had friends and family in the stoddard county police dept.

"Evidence discovered during the course of the investigation revealed that foul play was suspected," Cook said. Therefore, the case has now changed from a missing person's case to a homicide investigation. "We have several leads to follow-up on now," Cook commented. "We do have some suspects and we will continue working on it." Cook indicated that the cause of death and other details surrounding the discovery of the body and results of testing will not be released at this time, since officials do not want to "damage the prosecution."

well then whats taking the police so long to solve this case I say give all the suspects a polygraph!!!! And then go from there. I think justice should be served. And any way you look at this case someone should be held accountable.And I don't think if the police don't do something soon it will be just another unsolved mystery. If I were the children of claudia I would write and call anyone that would listen and maybe justice would be served.
