Six years later, murder case still unsolved

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A cold case remains unsolved in a murder that happened six years ago, and investigators hope by bringing the details forward once again, it can spark some new clues in the case.

The incident took place on the morning of April 17th, 2007. That's when April Sorensen, 27, was found stabbed and strangled to death in her house in northwest Rochester.

Investigators believe the house was then set on fire to cover up the evidence.

After interviewing more than 600 people, scouring the neighborhood for weeks and checking leads brought in by other departments, no one has been charged in the crime-- and justice has yet to be served.

Police continue to take tips, always hoping to draw one step closer to solving this mysterious crime. They say they're confident somebody knows what happened and have faith the case will eventually be solved.

And, they're asking anyone with any clues that could help to put this horrific crime to rest to call Crimestoppers at: 1-800-222-TIPS.
