19-year-old Sonya Ivanoff was a standout in her small community of Nome Alaska. Sonja, who moved to Nome about two years prior, had made a name for herself on the basketball court in high school so almost everyone knew Sonya. On the evening of August 10, 2003, Sonja and her friend went out to have some fun. It was near midnight when the friends separated to do other things. When the roommate woke up the next morning and Sonja was not at home, worry set in. Police launch an investigation but with only a 7 person police team, specialists had to be flown in. Officers were working day and night to find out what happened to Sonya. When the truth finally came out, it was not only shocking but had been right in front of them the whole time.
