Community members gathered at the Islands and Ocean Visitors Center last week for a community conversation with the Homer Police Department around the case of missing Homer woman Anesha “Duffy” Murnane. Missing since Oct. 17, Duffy’s friends and family facilitated the conversation.
With a photo of Duffy projected on the auditorium screen, longtime friend Tela O’Donnell Bacher and stepfather Ed Berg shared a bit about who Duffy is and addressed questions, like, “Is it possible that she just left Homer without telling anyone?” To which Berg replied, “absolutely not.”
“People ask could she have just taken off. I say to them, ‘Could I just leave Homer? Or, could you just leave Homer?’ It’s hard to conceive of just doing it. The logistics of pulling something like that off and not leaving a track. It would take a phenomenal amount of preparation. She didn’t just go off on a lark,” Berg said.
