Unidentified Wiki

Gloria Frieda Reiken was a young woman who disappeared in 1970. Her body was discovered in the debris of a burned home near Milaca, Minnesota. The fire was not the cause of her death, although it is unknown how she died.


Rieken was known to hitchhike and was last seen in early November 1970. Some agencies listed November 16 as the day she disappeared. She left her apartment in Minneapolis with the intention of travelling to her University Campus. She did not attend any classes that day.

Her body was discovered the day following a house fire near Milaca, Minnesota on November 10. Investigators could only confirm that the decedent was female and did not die as a result of the fire.

The unidentified body was exhumed in 2018 and matched to Rieken through DNA in February 2019.
