    MN - Brian, 58, & Karen Regnier, 69, slain in murder-suicide, Andover, 29 May 2017


    A man shot and killed his parents and then took his own life in the family’s Andover home, authorities said Thursday.

    A man who lives near the home in the 900 block of 139th Avenue N. identified the three killed in recent days as Karen Regnier, 69, and Brian Regnier, 58, and their 27-year-old son, Aaron. The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the identities later Thursday.

    A 22-caliber semi-automatic handgun and casings were found at the scene.

    "The sheriff's office has been there before," Anoka County Cmdr. Paul Sommer said in reference to the residence. "Certainly not a lot of times, but we had been there for some domestic disturbance type of things." Sommer characterized the calls as

    Sommer went on to say the son had a previous record.

    "The son, Aaron, does have a criminal history that's significant for possession of child pornography," he said. "I believe he may have had some arrests for some controlled substance crimes as well."

    Sommer said his department has been looking into the family's history as part of the investigation.

    "What we've learned is that this mother and father had a lot of challenges with this son; he had some issues with mental illness, we're told, he had some issues with chemical dependency and despite all of the challenges that Aaron presented for them, they were very supportive and they wanted the best for him and were doing all that they could to help him along in life," Sommer said.

    So sad. Despite everything, they loved and supported their troubled adult son. I sympathize with his illness, but not the child pornography part. I just don't have compassion for that in any way shape or form. Sad story.
