MANKATO, Minn. (WCCO) – A homicide investigation in Mankato Friday led to the arrest of a Golden Valley man.

Police found the body of 19-year-old Josselyn Bishop, of Henderson, on Victory Drive in Mankato, Minn., Friday around 3 p.m. The girl’s body, which had suffered multiple stab wounds, was found on a grassy median that separated the four-lane road near the intersection of North Victory Drive and Sohler Drive.

The girl’s body was left without identification, but police got a break when Bishop’s roommate reported her missing.

Detective Matt DuRose of Mankato Police said that before police got that call, they didn’t know where to go with the investigation.

It was through interviewing Bishop’s roommate that detectives were able to established a link between Bishop and her suspected murderer, who is one of Bishop’s ex-boyfriends.

Police arrested 19-year-old Damone Christopher Williams-Tillman, who now faces second-degree intentional murder charges.

For those who knew Bishop, however, the quick arrest of Williams-Tillman gives little comfort.

“Just terrible how it had to be her, happen to her,” said Shauna, a friend of Bishop’s. “I can’t imagine anyone hurting her.”

Williams-Tillman was transported to Mankato and booked in the Blue Earth County Jail.

Anyone with further information about the homicide is asked to call Mankato Police. The Mankato Department of Public Safety and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are investigating.

    My thought and prayers go out to this girl and her family/friends. This hits all too close to home, as my little cousin was found in about this same scenario. May justice be served…

    A nineteen-year-old is not a girl, she is a woman. (This is not directed to the commenter.)

    she is someone’s baby girl and no one has the right to take her life

    Another white person killed by a black murderer. Yeah, I know, don’t bring up race. I am supposed to ignore the tens of thousands of white people killed by blacks since 1964. I am supposed to ignore the racist black mobs who prey upon innocent white people.

      How convenient you forget about the tens of thousands of white people killed by white people, and, in some instances, eaten by white people. What a pathetic excuse you are for a bottom dweller. If there is a God, may He send some of these same white people your way.

    White women who marry a black husband increase their chances of being a victim of spousal homicide by 12.4 times.

      White women who marry white husbands increase their chances of being chopped into little pieces and eaten by 250%.
