CLOQUET, Minn. (AP) — The St. Louis County sheriff’s office has announced an arrest in the killing of a 33-year-old mother more than a decade ago.
Trina Langenbrunner’s body was found by the side of a road near the Fond du Lac Reservation in 2000. She had been stabbed to death.
The sheriff’s office announced Friday that a 41-year-old Cloquet man had been arrested in connection with her death. The man was being held on tentative charges of second-degree murder and second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Langenbrunner’s death had baffled authorities for years. Investigators had said they believed she knew her killer and that she had tried to fight off her attacker. But their efforts to find a suspect with fresh cuts, scratches or bruises came up empty.
