Police Issue Warrant For Suspect In Granite Falls Double Homicide
GRANITE FALLS, Minn. (AP/WCCO) — An arrest warrant has been issued for the former boyfriend of a Granite Falls woman who was fatally shot along with another man.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says Andrew Dikken is wanted in the shooting deaths of 26-year-old Kara Monson and her 28-year-old boyfriend, Chris Panitzke, of Redwood Falls.
Dikken has been missing since the two were shot Sept. 2 at Monson’s home. Authorities say Dikken’s vehicle was found Sept. 4 north of Belview.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Granite Falls Police Department, the Yellow Medicine Sheriff’s Office or call 911. Authorities say Dikken should not be approached as he may be armed and dangerous.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is assisting in the active and ongoing investigation.
About 600 people gathered at Granite Falls Lutheran Church Tuesday for Monson’s funeral. Friends and family members described Monson as a loving mother and someone who always saw the best in others.
