Law enforcement ends search of Pagnac property

Posted: Updated:
MAPLE GROVE, Minn. (KMSP) -

Years after Amy Sue Pagnac went missing, police have reopened that cold case. Six days after law enforcement focused their search efforts on the Pagnac’s Maple Grove home, there are still more questions than answers. A backhoe and other excavating equipment has been seen on the property and a 24 hour presence hasn’t provided any new answers to what happened 25-years ago.

Police have wrapped up a search of the Pagnac’s Maple Grove home. The warrant was served last Sunday morning and the Maple Grove Police Department had stated they wanted to have the investigation wrapped up by Friday (May 23rd). One day later, the search of the property is over, but the investigation remains active.

“It’s just shocking to think that they are over there digging up 25 years later,” said childhood friend Tammy Weiss. “I truly just thought she ran away.”

Although they are the same age, Weiss said she had feelings that Amy was never truly happy at home and decided it was enough.

“I don’t think she was every truly happy there,” said Weiss. “I feel like she decided that was enough and she took off.”

Even though she still believes Amy ran away, the search effort at the Pagnac home has created some doubts with Weiss as to what exactly happened.

“I’m hoping she just ran away but for them to just all of a sudden come back 25 years later and start digging like that for this long,” Weiss said.

Amy’s mom Sue Pagnac told FOX 9 she has not heard from anything from Maple Grove Police but did say it was a good thing because it means they are focusing on getting the work done rather than talking to them.
