Bail was set at $1M for suspected craigslist killer Michael John Anderson. He’s the suspected killer of Katherine Ann Olson whose body was found a day after she responded to a phony employment ad on craigslist. It’s alleged that Anderson was the one who took out the ad.
An additional detail mentioned in the article is that they believe that Anderson shot her in the back of the head with a .357 Magnum.
Police believe Olson was killed in Anderson’s house sometime after she arrived Thursday morning. Investigators found blood splatters in the man’s bedroom and on his mattress, as well as bloody drag marks down the stairs of the home.
They also discovered a .357 Magnum and a shell casing from the gun in his room.
During Olson’s autopsy, a bullet was found in her stomach.
Authorities said there is no initial evidence of a sexual assault, but final results are not in, police said.
The man initially denied having contact with the woman, but eventually admitted to being present when she was killed. He said a friend killed Olson because he “thought it would be funny.”
At a press conference after the bail hearing, police claimed that only Anderson was involved in the killing.
More details as they become available.
