Oak Park Heights, Minn. (WCCO) – Police in Oak Park Heights say they’re working hard to track down the person who killed a beloved vulnerable adult.
Nils Johnson, 39, was found dead in his condominium on Tuesday.
Johnson was known to all his neighbors as a friendly and loving person. Now they fear his friendliness opened him up to the wrong crowd.
Outside his condominium door, still showing the powder from fingerprint dusting, a grieving mother and sister placed a table for a growing memorial of flowers.
Johnson’s neighbors said they adored him for his big heart and trusting soul.
“He was a very trusting person and offered anything to anybody if asked,” his sister, Solveig Colaianni, said. “I never heard him say no.”
Colaianni said her brother overcame his struggles with mental illness and lived independently in his condo for the past 20 years.
He loved his job as a cook at the local McDonald’s restaurant, and neighbors like Jolene Cady loved him.
