Does anyone remember back about 10 years or so a body of a young girl was found in a bloomington park? Was that ever solved?

I believe it happened at Moir Park - just by the river. I do not believe it was ever solved.

I read that Donald Blom, who was convicted on a different murder,(Katie Porier?) was strongly suspected in "Holly Spangler's" murder in Moir Park because he was living nearby that area. This murder happened in 1993. Mr. Blom didn't admit to the crime.

It's been over 17 years and still wishing she would walk through that door...miss ya Holly!!! She was a beautiful young woman full of energy and always had a smile...

Always remember to tell those in your life how much you love them and how much they mean to you. I missed getting in touch with her on what would be her last visit home only missing her by a few minutes and thinking I would catch up with her later...I never did get to tell her how I felt and that tears me up everytime I play it over in my mind...even this many years since. So while all of you still have the chance be sure to tell your loved ones exactly how you feel and don't put it off for a minute. You don't know if you have another minute with them.

I remember the Holly Spangler murder very well. I grew up down the road from Nine Mile Creek and spent most of my life playing around the creek. I remember when the news showed a clip of where her body was found, I knew in an instant where she was found even before they showed the rest of the area.

I will say she was found in an area south of 106 st. bridge on the east side of the crick near an old flag pole.

I knew one of the main suspects all of my life. From all that I knew and heard from others that knew him, I knew he was more than a prime suspect. The police department had all the evidence but could not pin anything on him.

There is a very nice memorial on the west side of the 106 st. bridge. Everyone should visit and read it and pay their respects.

I was only 13 years old, but the name Holly Spangler still sticks out in my mind. Growing up in Bloomington and visiting Moir Park frequently, I still remember.

I also remember this case. I must have been about 9 years old at the time and lived on Morgan Av. right along where she was found. I wish I could find more information on this case. If anyone has some good video clips please email me at [email protected]

Holly was from a small town called Antigo...Pop.8,000 Holly was a good person..Her best friend was Amy Sveda (Eldridge)Blom is suspected of multiple murder's (serial killer)...I personally hope he spend's the rest of his day's in misery in prison...This murder as all murder's effected the people that love Holly negatively. Becomeing alcoholic,drug addict's and right out self distruction. I know Holly is with God now..and have told Holly's mother that..Her reply was "she belong's with me" and i have to say...I agree with her..NO PARENT SHOULD HAVE TO BURY THEIR CHILD.and i speck from experience..not by what people commonly say "she's (he's) with God. When people say that to a parent,they don't relize how much that hurt's a parent...If i could go back and talk with Holly's mom i wouldn't have said that...HOLLY WAS NOT ONLY BEAUTIFUL ON THE OUT SIDE,,BUT ON THE INSIDE AS WELL..
WE MISS YOU hOLLY

Holly was a family member, although I only met her once a few years before she passed. Very sad that she had to die so young and in such a way. Her mother and father are both gone now as well.
I recently posted a picture of Holly at
findagrave dot com.

That girl was raped at a pool party and was dumped at moir park. The bloomington police back then covered it all up. I know more about this. Matter of fact my friends life is in danger over this and he has nothing to do with it. A part of me wants to go to the news about this and break this story out. Cause what I learned is the bloomington police department is very corrupted and is behind all of it. And maybe I need to call 60 minutes cause this cover up is JACKED!

I still remember this case, it spooked the whole city. I was about 10yrs old when it happen. Very sad story. I still can spooked about moir park.
Where was the body found?
Where is her memorial? Can't find it!
What's interesting about this case, is that I can't find anything about.
I nickname it "Bloomington's Black Dahlia."
Because of the impact it had.

The individual I mentioned earlier moved from Bloomington well over a decade ago.
I don't know where to.

I don't want to elaborate on where she was found.

Police were watching him and at one point, so I was told, he walked into the park and went right up to where her body was found.

There is a large stone on 106 st. just west of the bridge with a plaque on it in her memory.

After reading this information online I wondered about more information. Who were the other suspects? Where did this poor girl go to school and work? This really pulls on my heart.

this is so sad. I am sorry for your loss. I live in Bloomington and plan to go find the site where this happened and pray.
