Anesha “Duffy” Murnane Bio – Anesha “Duffy” Murnane Wiki
A former Homer man has been arrested in Utah and charged with the murder of Anesha “Duffy” Murnane, missing since she vanished from Homer’s downtown in October 2019.
Anesha “Duffy” Murnane was 38 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Authorities in Alaska have accused a Utah man of kidnapping and killing a 38-year-old woman who has not been seen since late 2019.
People confirm with Homer police that Kirby Foleni Calderwood, 32, was arrested in Ogden, Utah, on May 9.
Calderwood was charged with kidnapping, tampering with evidence, and first- and second-degree murder, all in connection with the Oct. 17, 2019, disappearance of Anesha “Duffy” Murnane.
Police say, Murnane, a resident of Homer, vanished while walking to a doctor’s appointment.
Calderwood has yet to appear in an Alaska court and has not entered pleas to the charges against him. Lawyer information was not immediately available for him.
According to police, Calderwood lived in Homer at the time of Murnane’s disappearance, and he had been identified early on as a potential person of interest in the case.
The Homer News obtained a copy of the criminal complaint, which alleges Calderwood had spotted Murnane walking, pulled over, and offered her a ride to her appointment at SVT Health & Wellness Center.
Instead, the complaint says, Calderwood allegedly drove to an unoccupied home, owned by his girlfriend’s parents, and then sexually assaulted and tortured Murnane in a crawlspace before killing her.
Calderwood allegedly prepared the crawlspace prior to heading out in his car, looking for a victim.
Murnane’s remains have not been found. She was declared dead in court proceedings last June. Citing the criminal complaint, the Homer News reports that investigators realized early on that Murnane likely accepted a ride, after police dogs lost her scent on a road between her home and SVT Health & Wellness Center just a mile away.
According to the Homer News, a tip came in on April 14, 2022, from a person who knows Calderwood. The tipster said Calderwood had told them about Murnane’s abduction, assault, and killing.
The caller further alleged that Calderwood had kept Murnane’s Timex watch. When Ogden Police searched his home there, they reportedly found a lady’s Timex watch.
The criminal complaint alleges investigators learned Calderwood had a history of being physically violent with women.
Calderwood is being held on a $1 million bond.
