The MySpace page for Elizabeth Rhodes, 23, offers a sad commentary in the aftermath of an accident in Arden Hills in which a car, driven by Rhodes, traveling the wrong way on Highway 10, struck the patrol car of Ramsey County sheriff’s deputy Joseph Lopez on New Year’s Day, killing his wife.
The last log-in was New Year’s Eve and the greeting on the page announces “Beth is ready to start drinking.”
