Pamela Halverson Death

August 5, 1999, 12:00 AM

The coroner says suicide is unlikely; an accident is even more far-fetched. That leaves murder, and that's how police are now treating the disappearance of Pamela East Halverson. The two-day search for the Citibank day care worker came to an end this morning, just blocks from where it started. Someone noticed a black Ford Tempo on a Sioux Falls street and called police. It turned out to be Halverson's car, with Halverson's body in it. KELO-LAND's Jessica Armstrong has the latest on this murder investigation.

Gary Javers, Halverson's boyfriend said yesterday, "I am worried. And that's the problem. People think I shouldn't worry." Before the discovery of Pamela East Halverson's car and the body inside it, Gary Javers said he was concerned about where his girlfriend might be.

Where police found the 25 year old woman, is in her car, the black Tempo they've been searching for since Monday night. The county coronor has tentively identified the body in the backseat, as Halverson's.

R.J. Rabbithead, noticed Halverson's car, he says, "it finally clicked for me today that it happened to be that car. It's kind of sad, if she was along with it."

Rabbithead says Halverson's car had been parked along East 11th, since late Tuesday morning. A resident in the apartment's down the street notified their manager that the car might be the one police were trying to find."

The coroner isn't saying what killed the woman he believes is Pamela Halverson. There were no obvious signs of injury. There will be tests for drugs and to see if she was raped.

Halverson's boyfriend, Javers, is no stranger to investigations involving untimely death.
He was in an accident 11 years ago that killed a teenage girl, Jennifer Hansen. It's the same accident that left Jamie Hammer with a steel plate in his head. Hammer was a witness against serial killer Robert Leroy Anderson.
