Rochester’s Unsolved Murder of April Sorensen Hits 10-Year Anniversary – [Video]
Today marks the tenth anniversary of April Sorensen's unsolved murder in Rochester, Minnesota. She was brutally attacked in broad daylight inside her Northwest home on April 17, 2007. Danielle Teal sat down with Captain John Sherwin from the Rochester Police Department to learn about the investigation and leads.
April Sorensen was brutally attacked in broad daylight inside her Northwest home on April 17, 2007. She had come home from a class at RCTC that morning. A cable company was scheduled to come visit. Upon arrival they discovered a fire within the home and contacted the fire department immediately. What was discovered is forever impressed on each person involved in this case. April's body was unidentifiable due to her body being set on fire. The fire covered most of the evidence. But there's still hope.
I sat with Captain John Sherwin from the Rochester Police Department to get an update and find out what the community can do to help. The extended interview is below filled with details related to the case, circumstances surrounding it and how you can help.
