Unsolved cold case hits a 5 year mark


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC)-- It's been five years since someone murdered 27-year-old April Sorensen, and as the case remains open, police continue to ask for your help in solving it.

It was April 17th, 2007 when Sorensen was found stabbed and strangled to death in her house in Northwest Rochester.

Many of the neighbors say although it happened five years ago, the vivid memories of that night have stuck with them.

Thomas Topka lives a few houses down and says, "I was on my way home from work and the streets were closed off, there were police cars, fire engines...and I had no idea what happened."

After interviewing hundreds of people and checking leads brought in by other departments... investigators have yet to find who did this.

Lieutenant Dan Muyres explains, "We have had a lot of leads...nothing has fully come of them yet, but someone out there knows what happened and it's only a matter of time."

Police keep the case open and continue to stay in contact with the family, and many seem to have faith that the case will be solved.

Neighbor Darwin Moon says,  "This poor guy has no closure...None, because they haven't solved it...granted they're still working, but eventually someday, somebody will be arrested, up comes the evidence and they have them. It's a matter of time."

If you have any information that could help police with their investigation you are urged to call crime stoppers at 1-800-222-tips.

There's a $100,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
