Additional notes: Thanks to Dan Borland of Albert Lea for the tip on this story. We’ve covered many discoveries of skeletal remains in the past. Many times the remains are those of a Native American or are completely unrelated to the disappearance of Jodi Husientruit. However, we feel it’s important to report on any suspicious instance of a body found within a certain distance of Mason City, Iowa.
