    Earlier article:

    College Student Murdered

    http://www.kxmc.com/getArticle.asp?ArticleId=130003

    (Lt. Dan Strandberg, Minot Police Detective) "In my experience the victim and the suspects have always had a close relationship. However in this case we're not able to ascertain any of that and it is a little unsettling, yes."


    He's talking about the death of a Minot State University student who was killed in her north Minot apartment - apparently by an unuknown intruder - over the weekend.

    Minot police said today 18-year old Anita Knutson, a Velva High School graduate of 2006 and a native of Butte, was foUND dead in her apartment yesterday.

    The young woman's body was discovered at this apartment Monday afternoon by her father, who was worried about her after not being able to contact her over the weekend.

    IMO, just based on what I've read, I'd be surprised if she was killed by someone she knew. Two stab wounds? Very clean cut killing and doesn't seem personal to me.

    Just my opinion though. Very sad story...she was a beautiful girl!

    What a beauty she was. I wonder if it was someone who had a thing for her and she didn't care for him? I wonder how the killer got into the apartment?
    Any prints on the knife that they found? I really hope that the catch the monster that did this.

    It appears this murder has never been solved. What a shame.

    Very, very sad. The older articles about the case are no longer available. I wonder if there were any signs of forced entry or anything else in her apartment disturbed.

    Knife attacks are generally very personal. There have been several knife killings of late by teens against their classmates and friends. Even the CA rampage killer (no name, please) killed his roommates using a knife but used a gun on his attack against the public.

    I wonder if LE has concentrated on males who might have had a grudge against or an obsession with Ms. Knutson. Have they considered it could have been a female? Did Ms. Knutson begin seeing someone new shortly before her murder....someone involved in a nasty breakup? Seems Ms. Knutson was likely familiar with her assailant if she allowed him/her entrance into her apartment, especially at night. It doesn't sound like LE know when (date, or time of day/night) Ms. Knutson was killed. Was she dressed for bed?

    Just some thoughts. Hope the new investigators find something that will solve this murder.
