Rockford, Michigan

Taken in May 2006...3 months before she was killed
Renee with her children, Joel, Sarah, and Hannah

Renee was stabbed to death in her own home at 9050 13 Mile Road, Rockford, MI while recovering from donating a kidney to the father of one of her students...just days before her divorce was to be finalized.  She was a mother of three young children; a nurse and teacher; and had a passion for third world medical missions.  Her estranged husband, Michael Pagel, is the ONLY person who has not voluntarily cooperated with police, nor has he provided an alibi to police for the night of Renee's murder.  He retains custody of the couple's children, and remains the ONLY suspect in this case.  Click here for more information on The ONLY Suspect

God says, "At the time I have planned, I will bring justice against the wicked."  
Psalm 75:2


Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer...
Romans 12:12
