Norine Boyd

Norine Boyd was the mother of three young boys when she went missing December 20, 1988. Norine lived in and managed apartments in Rupert, Idaho at the corner of 9th and A Street. She worked a graveyard shift at Magic Valley Foods in town and also played on a pool team Thursday nights at the Drift Inn.

Norine was separated from her husband Fred L. Lee, and their divorce was finalized in 1990. Two weeks before her disappearance, Rupert Police obtained a warrant for Norine charging her with stealing $992 from a Rupert man.

On the day of her disappearance, Norine had been wrapping Christmas presents and chatting with her sister. Her father stopped by that evening and found her missing, yet Christmas music was still playing and evidence of present wrapping was still noticeable. Her disappearance was unexplained; no one knew where she was or if someone was with her. Those who knew Norine said she would not up and leave her children so suddenly.

In March of 1989, hikers found her 1984 2-door Ford near the City of Rocks.

In 2010, Rupert police renewed their efforts, and with the help of a crime analyst and cadaver dog, were able to find her remains on October 12, 2012 in a very remote area in the City of Rocks.  The cause of death has not been released.

Contact the Cassia County Sheriff if you have information about how Norine Boyd died, or how her remains came to be found in the City of Rocks.
