Death of a Minneapolis Bicyclist

A Minneapolis man was killed Wednesday night while riding his bike. KARE 11 reported that 41-year-old Mark Loesch left his house Wednesday night with nothing of value on him, and was found the next morning on somebody’s front lawn in the 3700 block of Elliot Avenue South in Minneapolis. They reported that he died of severe trauma several hours before paramedics arrived, possibly beaten to death. KSTP 5 had a very similar report. They do use the word ‘murdered’ instead of ‘killed’ however, and say that he was found barely breathing the next morning around 7 a.m. and died before paramedics arrived. Both articles maintain there is no explanation for his death and that ‘severe trauma’ was the cause.
