More than 850 plan to attend Matula funeral


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- A funeral for Mandy Matula is scheduled for next weekend, and so far more than 850 people say they plan to attend.

The 24-year-old Matula went missing in May, and her remains were found October 26th in a shallow grave in Stearns County.

Matula's funeral will be at 3 p.m. November 10th at Grace Church in Eden Prairie.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that so far, more than 850 people have confirmed on a Facebook memorial page that they will attend.

Matula's story grabbed public attention as family members, friends and community members joined in search efforts over the last six months.
