North St. Paul teen found dead after being stabbed in a Maplewood park

| No Comments

Authorities have identified the body found stabbed to death this weekend in a Maplewood park as Anna Lynn Hurd of North Saint Paul, news sources reported.

Hurd, 16, was found wounded early Saturday in Hillside Park. Authorities said her body was found at about 4:30 a.m., when someone called 911 to provide her with medical attention, according to the Pioneer Press.

Police said on Sunday that the preliminary autopsy results from the Ramsey County medical examiner's office showed Hurd died from several stab wounds, the Star Tribune reported.

The police said no arrests have been made in this case, according to the Star Tribune.

"All I will say about whether she knew her attacker or not is that we do not believe there is a general danger to the public," said Maplewood Police Chief Dave Kvam, the Pioneer Press reported.

Hurd's father, Patrick Hurd, said his daughter was expelled from North High School after fighting with another student and accidentally hitting a teacher, according to the Star Tribune.

Patrick Hurd said he thinks the person who killed his daughter knew her. He last saw her late last week when a friend picked her up at their home in North St. Paul, the Star Tribune reported.

"They stole something from me that was my most prized possession," Patrick Hurd said of his daughter's killer, as reported in the Star Tribune.
