MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities have identified the 16-year-old girl who was stabbed to death in Maplewood.
On Saturday morning, authorities were called to the area of McKnight Road and Ripley Avenue at about 4:32 a.m. Saturday on a report of a person needing medical attention. When police arrived, a female victim was found dead at the scene.
Police identified the victim Sunday afternoon as Anna Hurd of North St. Paul. The Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office says Hurd’s death was a result of several stabbing-type puncture wounds.
Chief Dave Kwam says authorities have collected enough evidence at the scene to believe that Hurd’s death was a homicide.
