A Facebook page dedicated to missing 18-year-old Antinette Keller has more than 12,000 friends, like Jenny Babos who now checks her group updates first thing in the morning. Babos has been spooked by the story because she too goes for walks through Prairie Park, where the remains were found.
Some of the comments on the Facebook page ask police if there is a killer on the loose and demand answers. They want to know if the remains found in the park are that of Toni Keller and what should students do to stay safe?
Keller, a 2010 Nequa Valley High School graduate, disappeared October 14th from her NIU Neptune Hall dormitory and headed toward Prairie Park.
