Funeral for Katherine Ann Olson Draws 1600
1600 people gathered at Christ Presbyterian Church for the funeral of Katherine Ann Olson, Wednesday in Edina.
Olson was laid to rest on the anniversary of her confirmation. Her family urged others to pray for her murderer and his family during the difficult time.
Olson was killed last Thursday after she responded to a babysitting ad on craigslist.com. Police said she was killed by Michael Anderson, 19, of Savage, Minn.
Both the Pioneer Press and the StarTribune felt this follow-up story was front page news. Similar headlines were printed on the cover of each newspaper. Both had large photographs, but were very different images. Both covered the story in a similar manner, focusing on specific quotes from the pastor of Olson's church and her overall remembrance.
