Thursday marks 7 years since murder of April Sorensen

Posted: Updated:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Thursday marks seven years since 27-year-old April Sorensen was found dead inside her northwest Rochester home.

Rochester police say officers will meet next week to come up with new strategies to try and crack the case.

Sorensen was found murdered in her home in April of 2007. Police said she died before someone intentionally set her bedroom on fire.

The day of the murder Sorensen had returned home from school, and within an hour, her house went up in flames.

Police retained the home while the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and Rochester investigators collected evidence for analysis.

Since Sorensen's death, police have gathered several DNA samples, and looked at persons of interest.

Officials are asking anyone with information regarding the murder to contact the Rochester Police Department at 507-328-6888.

Rochester police say the last tip call they received was about three weeks ago.
