Lynn Louise (Tickner) Schuller was born Dec. 5, 1946 in Hennepin County, Minnesota, to Harry D. Tickner and Florence Eloise (Cook) Tickner. She was raised in a Minneapolis suburb.

Barely a teen, the 13-year-old Lynn met Keith Raymond Schuller, 19, while the two families vacationed in northern Minnesota, and they married September 18, 1965.

The two made their home in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Lynn gave birth to the couple's first and only child in 1969.

In 1971, Keith abruptly announced he wanted a divorce, but Lynn hoped to keep the family together. Keith continued to press for a divorce, and in 1972, Lynn wrote her mother and said Keith had threatened to kill her.

Lynn disappeared under mysterious circumstances on August 6, 1972. Police suspected her husband of killing her and disposing of her remains, but without a body, officials didn't feel they had enough evidence to charge Keith with murder.

Keith Schuller then filed for divorce a total of seven times in Linn County District Court without success. Without his in-laws' knowledge, Schuller finally went to Dubuque County District Court to file the papers, and the divorce was granted in July 1976.

Less than two years later on March 20, 1978, a Dubuque District Court judge granted Schuller's request to have Lynn Schuller declared legally dead. The decree listed the couple's young son as the sole heir of Lynn's life insurance benefits, with Keith named the conservator.

Keith moved to Fruitland, Idaho, where he taught school and later became the Payette County coroner. (The position does not require a medical degree.) He continues to be the primary suspect in Lynn's disappearance and suspected homicide.
