Biker's Murder Still Unexplained
Mark Loesch, a 41-year-old Minneapolis father of four, was found nearly dead early Thursday morning after leaving for a bike ride late Wednesday night. After being found around 7am on Thursday morning, Loesch was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics in the 3700 block of Elliot Avenue S.
After putting a new tire on his bike, Loesch announced to his wife that he was going for a quick ride. As an avid biker, this was not an uncommon occurence. She called police after realizing her husband had not come home by the time she awoke on Thursday morning. Loesch was not carrying a cell phone or any money, leaving his death a mystery.
Authorities are asking anyone with any information to contact the Minneapolis Police tips line.
