Exporting bodies from Minneapolis

Criminals in Minneapolis sometimes have the courtesy of dropping the bodies near a hospital or other friendly facility. In this case a body was exported from Minneapolis to North Memorial hospital in Robbinsdale.

(WCCO) Robbinsdale, Minn. A 20-year-old shooting victim was found dead in a car outside North Memorial Medical Center overnight, police said. Authorities believe the woman was shot at another location and driven to the hospital around 3 a.m. Sunday. The woman was most likely shot in North Minneapolis [ed. - what are the odds?], a police spokesperson said.
Since Minneapolis is a separate country from the rest of America, should Interpol be involved?

And in other news, one Minnesota's most notorius stalkers has been accidentally released from jail:

"We are actively searching for Mr. Murphy," he said. "The victims of his offenses have typically been judicial officials, and we take their safety very seriously. We have a long history of being very aggressive in locating Murphy."

Murphy's victims were notified of his release last week.

He pleaded guilty in 1994 to counts of making terroristic threats to judges, prosecutors and others in the judicial system. He admitted to vandalizing property with paint, slashing tires, scattering animal parts on doorsteps and placing a fake bomb in a mailbox.

Murphy was sentenced to eight years in prison and almost 40 years on probation [ed. isn't the sentence backward?]. He was initially released in 1998, but returned to prison in 1999 and 2001 on probation violations before his term ended in August.
Sleep well.
