Investigators are reopening a cold case involving the disappearance of an east-central Iowa woman six years ago.
Then-23-year-old Cora Okonski of Tama was last seen alive in 2000 and investigators with the DCI now say her disappearance was not voluntary.
They’ve relabeled the case a homicide instead of a missing person.
No suspects have been named and it’s unclear if new evidence has come to light.
Okonski’s former boyfriend, Tait Purk, was questioned but never charged. Purk claimed Okonski walked to the store for cigarettes and didn’t return.
Purk is in a federal prison on unrelated drug and gun charges.
