Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Anwesha Dey

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP for every day of the month of May. Today’s case is Anwesha Dey, a 30-year-old woman of Indian nationality who disappeared from Lincoln, Nebraska on May 3, 2015. She had moved to the area to attend graduate school at the University of Nebraska.

We basically know what happened; it’s a matter of finding her. Anwesha was walking home from a friend’s house when she fell into a creek. It wasn’t deep, but it had a strong current and she couldn’t swim. She was swept away and is presumed drowned.

No one was around I guess, but her last moments were captured by a surveillance camera owned by a nearby business.

Anwesha’s body could theoretically have made it all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.

    I like the story of the missing young woman, reported by her mother. I guess her disappearance was posted on Facebook. People were asked if anyone recognized her. I turns out she was a contestant of the Bachelor. I guess she tweeted to mom, that they can’t make cell phone calls. It may she did not tell mom the exact truth about where she was.
