Email News Alerts

Rather than testify against her husband, the wife of a prominent Frazee hog farmer -- now on trial for criminal sexual conduct -- has apparently gone underground.


Authorities are asking for the public's help in locating Virginia Juanita Briard, 52, of 38501 County Road 56, Frazee.

An arrest warrant was issued for her Tuesday by District Judge Peter Irvine. She did not immediately return a phone message left at the Briard Hog Farm early this afternoon.
