MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police are teaming up with Crime Stoppers to solve a homicide that happened in the summer of 2012.

Lois Swenson was found murdered in her north Minneapolis home on June 13, 2012.

Lt. Richard Zimmerman believes Swenson had helped the suspect in the past. He said there is a man who knows the suspect, and they hope he comes forward.

“He was a person that was very close to her, that she helped with money and transportation,” Zimmerman said.

He said the suspect tried to leave the country, but was unable.

“And that person left with a large amount of money that we know was given to him by a close friend,” he said.

Now investigators want to talk with that friend.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
