    MN - Nils Johnson, 39, murdered in his Oak Park Heights home, 11 April 2015

    The BCA is assisting in a suspicious death investigation in Oak Park Heights
    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.
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    From September:


    Charges against a homeless former Stillwater man accused of killing a friend who took him in have been elevated to first-degree murder.

    Nathan Nigel Anthony Eldredge, 25, was arrested April 17 in Illinois, three days after Nils Johnson's body was found in Johnson's Oak Park Heights home.

    Stillwater man gets life in Oak Park Heights murder
    A Stillwater man was sentenced to life without parole Thursday in Washington County District Court after he was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of an Oak Park Heights man last spring.


    A jury deliberated less than two hours in Stillwater before finding Nathan Eldredge, 25, guilty of killing Nils Johnson, 39, by beating and suffocating him.
