$1,000 reward to solve murder of north Minneapolis peace activist

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Minneapolis police and Crime Stoppers of Minnesota are partnering to offer a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the June 2012 murder of peace activist Lois Swenson.

Swenson, 76, was found murdered in her home on the 2200 block of Vincent Ave. N. on June 13, 2012. When police arrived to perform a welfare check, she had already been dead for a couple of weeks. The home was locked and there was no sign of forced entry.

Last May, Minneapolis police thought they were close to making an arrest, believing the killer is someone she knew.

"She'd help people get on their feet, and we believe someone may have taken advantage of that," Lt. Rick Zimmerman told Fox 9.

Anyone with information is asked to send a text to 847 411, enter MPD and the tip, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS), text TIP674 plus your information to 274637(CRIMES) or go to the Crime Stoppers website at crimestoppersmn.org and click on "Give a Tip". All callers are given a unique identifier and no names are used.
