Jobi, 23, was a Savage resident. A woman who lived near an address listed to Jobi said he had lived there with his family but they moved out last year and she didn’t know where they went.
Relationship gone bad
Schunk, a Burnsville High School graduate now studying sociology at the University of Minnesota, dated Nelson for a few months last year. Her family says she is an intelligent and caring person and believed she could help Nelson turn his life around. She broke off their relationship last Thanksgiving after she learned he was living with another woman — not Conrade — and had a child with her.
Nelson was released from prison on Dec. 12, 2011, after serving time for first-degree aggravated robbery. He was on supervised release until May 25 and is on probation until May 2014 for a misdemeanor conviction for driving with a suspended license and giving false information to police in Dakota County, according to state records. He has convictions for drug sales and possession of a weapon by an ineligible person.
Nelson was charged under the name Shavelle Chavez-Nelson in Hennepin County in June with first-degree burglary and illegally possessing a firearm in connection with a June 12 burglary in Richfield. At the time of the shooting in Burnsville, he was free on bail in that case, pending a court hearing Oct. 15.
Conrade has a history of minor traffic offenses and one misdemeanor conviction for theft.
Schunk’s cellphone was turned off at 9:14 p.m. Saturday, her brother Owen Schunk said. There has been no activity in her bank or credit card accounts. The family is hoping that Schunk is hiding for fear of Nelson or his associates and will eventually be found.
Her loved ones have put up fliers at bus stations, bus stops and places she liked to go.
“We’ve got a whole team of people doing that for us,” Owen Schunk said. “So we can just focus on putting timelines together and doing coordination from our homes.”
He said the family is “going to be considering taking some outside approaches to finding her.”
