Minneapolis Police Make Arrest in 1980 Stabbing Death

Minneapolis Police have announced that they have made an arrest in a murder case which took place over 30 years ago. Robert William Skogstad, age 57, was arrested in Kansas in connection with the death of 22-year-old Mary Cathryn Steinhart, who was stabbed to death inside her apartment. She had been raped. Police found a butcher’s knife at the scene. There were no signs of forced entry, and Skogstad had been a caretaker at the building where the victim lived. DNA evidence was collected at the scene and likely linked the suspect to the crime; too bad it too so long to catch him.
