$1,000 reward to solve murder of north Minneapolis peace activist
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.
"She'd help people get on their feet, and we believe someone may have taken advantage of that," Lt. Rick Zimmerman told Fox 9.
