A Minnesota grand jury handed down an indictment today of first degree murder for 19-year-old Michael John Anderson. Anderson is accused of killing 24-year-old Katherine Ann Olson after Olson answered a phony employment ad placed by Anderson.
When Savage police interviewed Anderson, he initially denied having contact with Olson.
Anderson then admitted to being present when Olson died. He said a friend killed the woman because he “thought it would be funny.”
However the evidence that’s been released mostly points to Anderson acting alone.
After a bloodied towel – with Anderson’s name inked on it and Olson’s smashed cell phone wrapped inside – was found in a nearby Savage park, authorities picked up Anderson from his job fueling airplanes at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. His phone number was the last one called on Olson’s phone.
Minnesota does not have the death penalty as much as this scumbag deserves it.
