Stabbing leaves one dead

A suspect in a fatal stabbing Wednesday fled the 2100 block of 3rd Avenue South on foot, according to police, and a woman is in custody.

Police responded to the reported assault shortly before 5 p.m. The victim was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center and pronounced dead on arrival. He was identified as Anthony Richard Morgan, age 21, of Minneapolis. 

Police said they arrested a woman shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday and booked her in the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center on probable cause murder. 

Police said they do not believe the incident was random. 

Anyone with information can call the MPD tip line at 692-TIPS (8477). The case number is 15-211637.

The stabbing took place on the same block as a fatal May 6 shooting. An 18-year-old was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in that case, and a 21-year-old turned himself in to police and faces charges for serving as an accomplice after the fact.

Police investigate cold case

Officials have discovered the remains of Cassandra Rhines, a resident of 2700 Grand Ave. S. who went missing in the summer of 1985.

An off-duty Lake County Sheriff’s office employee discovered her skeletal remains last year in a rarely-traveled part of Gooseberry Falls State Park. Investigators believe she was murdered near the time of her disappearance at age 19, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

Investigators now hope to hear from people who knew her or lived near her building. They are particularly interested in finding a man she may have been living with at the time of her disappearance.

“Cassandra Rhines was last heard from in June 1985, when she called a friend to confirm her attendance at her Goddaughter’s birthday party in Minneapolis the next day,” Lake County Sheriff Carey Johnson said in a statement. “She never showed, and was never heard from again.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at 218-834-8385 or bca.coldcase@state.mn.us. Tips can be anonymous.
