www.inkthinkerblog.com — Late last month, reports starting coming out about a 24-year-old Minnesota woman who was murdered after she answered a Craigslist ad for a nanny.
A woman who responded to an online request for a babysitter told her roommate that the person who placed the ad “seemed kind of strange.”
Katherine Ann Olson went anyway, thinking she would be meeting a woman named Amy, or a couple. Instead, authorities say, she was lured to the home of her killer, who shot her in the back before stuffing her in the trunk of her car.
On Tuesday, prosecutors charged Michael John Anderson, 19, of Savage, with second-degree murder. Their evidence: blood spatters in the suburban home he shared with his parents, a gun in his bedroom and drag marks on the stairway.
Olson’s body was found Friday in the trunk of her car, which was abandoned in a park about five blocks from Anderson’s house. Her ankles were bound with red twine, according to the criminal complaint filed in Scott County. Her purse, her smashed cell phone, and bloody towels — one of which bore Anderson’s name — were found in a garbage can nearby. Read the whole report.
