More About The Life Of Drew Heinkel, Homicide Victim...

Contributed image, blog post by John Hoff

For god-knows-what-reasons, it appears JNS blog has become the preferred public forum for an (apparent) discussion about romantic rivalry between two different women who were apparently part of the life of murder victim Drew Heinkel. Comments about this rivalry are popping up in threads on this blog. And now this comes in via email, with attached photos of Drew Heinkel I haven't seen elsewhere...

I am happy to sponsor this information because no killer is in custody that I know about--nor has one been cleared--and the willingness of the individuals to communicate may ultimately be helpful to solving or resolving this matter.

The writer of the email says as follows:

Sorry about the caps last time. I know u have nothing to do with the order things come up in with googles search engin. On the link that is family and friends u personally said u chose to highlight a particular comment and it was a comment his x left. I was asking if u will PLEASE put my comment and pics as the one u choose to highlight because Drew would of wanted it that way. Mistys comment is incorrect and I want people to know the truth. Today I'm going to try and find the time to write exactily what happened that night from begining to end and I will email it to u if ur intrested in hearing the real story. Untill then will u please change it for me, here is my post again and the pics people should see.

I was with Drew n personally witnessed his murder. It was Valentines weekend, our 3rd V-Day together. Drew owned my hart and always will! I know him inside n out n I wouldn't be the person I am today if it weren't for Drew, just all the time I spent with him n all the things we shared n he thought me. My life will never be the same! His last few hrs alive he was Happy!!! He showed me sooo much love which was normal but that night he went above and beyond not only to tell me but to love allover me n physically show me how he truly felt. I couldn't of asked for our last few hrs to be better!

Anyone who really knew Drew knows he was a beautiful man, one of a kind to say the least.

"Drew, Baby I am so sorry for what happened n I promise I will make sure that piece of shit good for nothing bitch who took you from me n everyone who loved you so very much pays for what he did, you will NOT die in vane or without justice! I Love you!"

Some of Drews family n maybe friends blame me. If u knew Drew u know that nobody made that man do anything he didn't want to n that night was no different, Drew was with me because he wanted to be. U guys who really know him know he would be pissed right now at anyone whos hating on me. He would want u guys to have my back cuz he did. Ride or Die! That was my thing and our thing. Unfortunately it was him, if I could of taken his place I would of in a hart beat! If certain people want to blame me, its nothin Drew n I know the truth n thats all that matters.

(JNS blog says: I would like to hear more and I am looking forward to further communication, but right now what I'd really like is THE FULL NAME OF THE GUY WHO KILLED HIM)

so which girl is this in this new picture?

Johnny Northside said...

That's apparently Nicole Sterling. The other girl in Drew's life is Misti or Misty. Here is more that "Nicole Sterling" told me.

Hello Johnny North side, my name is Nicole Sterling and I was with Drew Heinkel the night he was murdered. I read a posting you put up that came from Misty with the story of what happened and I was blown away... Its not completely true.

Drew was also in a relationship with me, I was not one of there friends and Drew was not delivering an invitation for there wedding. They were fighting and broken up, not only was it Mistys birthday Sat the 13th when I picked him but it was Valentines the next day and our 3rd Valentines Day together.

I can tell you the story from beginning to end of what happened the night he was murdered if you like but will you PLEASE take down Mistys posting and replace it with mine and my pics.

Misty has Drews facebook password so she put his profile pic as them kissing, not him. By the way I have no problem with Misty I think we should be a little closer right now but she wants to believe he loved her more then me or something I don't know but we were both with him we both loved him and it wasnt a secret ta anyone she needs a reality check. They were fighting and brokenup

ThankYou!

Here is more, paragraph breaks added.

These emails were not subject to any promise of confidentiality so I feel free to share them.

WHEN I GOOGLE "JOHNNY NORTHSIDE DREW HEINKEL" AND CLICK ON LIKE THE 3RD ONE DOWN THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS LINK THE FIRST STORY IS WRITTEN BY MISTY. HER ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED IS NOT THE TRUTH! I DID SEE THAT U DID APPROVED MY POST BUT IT IS EXTREAMILY IMPORTANT TO ME THAT THE FIRST THING THAT EVERYONE READS IS NOT MISTYS BULLSHIT STORY, THE ONLY REASON SHE KNOWS ANYTHIN IS BECAUSE OF WHAT I TOLD HER. I'M NOT ASKING U TO TAKE DOWN HER POST BUT THE FIRST THING THAT COMES UP UNDER FRIENDS AND FAMILY SHOULD BE MY POST W/ MY PICS!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE PUT MY POST AND PICS AS THE FIRST THING THAT COMES UP UNDER THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS LINK. I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THE TRUTH AND SO WOULD DREW. SHE SAID THE SECOND HE WALKED IN THE DOOR HE WAS ATTACKED WITH A KITCHEN KNIFE AND THAT IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED.

LIKE I SAID BEFORE I WILL WRITE EXACTILY WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT FROM BEGINING TO END IF U OR ANYONE ELSE WANTS TO HEAR THE REAL STORY BUT FOR NOW WILL U PLEASE DO DREW AND I A HUGE FAVOR AND LET MY POST BE THE FIRST STORY THAT EVERYONE READS WITH OUR PICS. I CAN'T PUT INTO WORDS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO ME THAT MY BOYFRIENDS STORY EVERYONE READS IS THE TRUTH! I'M GOING TO ADD MY POST AND PICS TO THIS EMAIL SO ONCE AGAIN PLEASE CAN U PUT MY STORY AS THE FIRST THING PEOPLE READ.

You two women need to grow up and get yourselves together. Leave the love triangle as exactly that, a triangle - don't go spreading it all over the internet. This 4th grade crap will be here for eternity - and in a year, two, five, twenty - this is NOT what you are going to want painting the picture of Drew's life and memories.

Leave it between yourselves. Better yet get a bottle of wine, a box of tissues, and invite yourself over to the other gal's house so you can grieve and comfort each other together. You are both probably a lot alike in order to have Drew attracted to both of you.

Sorry in advance for the harshness, I can't imagine any of this is easy, but please, think about my advise and consider it. Ask your God for some strength to hold it together and get through it, without making an ugly thing even uglier.

Again...this seems to be more of a I want 'supastar' status. honestly Nicole...you need to get help! Drew's murder is not a joke or a competition of any sort. We all know Misty is where Drew's heart has ALWAYS been! just for the record Johnny..Misty did NOT change Drew's facebook default. there has been a different ones of drew and misty for a very long time.But its has always been one of both of them! he loved Misty with EVERYTHING he had! check misty's myspace! there are comments from drew that prove it! I believe this is a shame that Nicole has used her knowledge of what happened that night as a tool to gain a higher status than misty...does it really matter at this point? yes Misty and drew had a little fight..but Nicole, where did drew spend 99.9% of his time! and that tells ALL! Nicole get help please!

Athena said...

Johnny if you have any decency about you you will take down both Nichole and Misty's post's. Neither of them are trying to help sole the crime. They are just trying to prove to who ever is reading who Drew loved and wanted to be wiyh. The truth is he didn't want to be with eith of them, or he would of been fully commited to only one of them, don't you agree? If we want to help slove this crime, then only accept post of the people who are giving real information like a name of the guy who stabbed Drew. There are so many people on this blog just spurtting nonsence, and I hope that isn't your intention. If you want to have a internet Jerry Springer show with trailer trash girls fighting over someone who didn't realy care about either of them, then fine say that, but you are saying this blog is to improve your neighborhood. So get usefull information and leave the rest for those people to battle it out on facebook and myspace. If you truley want to help your neighborhoon grow into a peacful repectful safe place to live then, you need to run your blog a little diffrently. You can not build up a neighborhood, by tearing it dow.

Athena said...

Also I have a very nice picture od Drew if you could please post that insted of these girls who in two weeks will have moved on with their lives. This murder will effect my family for a lifetime. Please think about what your doing, and allowing these girls to do, to what I assume you want to be a respectable, reliable blog. If this Nichole want's to be so very helpfull where is the name of the guy tha tstabbed my nephew to death? And if she gave the information she says she has then why isn't this guy in jail, why is he still walking free? She say's it was murder not self defense, yes it's true Drew was there with her that night, and yes it is True Misty and drew argued a lot. But if she isn't giving the name up why even post her comments? Everone wants this murder solved, Johnny I hope you do too, and thatyour not just doing this for attention, do the rite thing, if not for your self then for my family.

Athena said...

thank you, Athena

Johnny Northside said...

I don't go back and change posts like that. If you have more information to provide, I look forward to receiving it.

Johnny Northside said...

More. Here is more from Nicole Sterling.
-----------
I was taken to the police station after the stabbing that night and told the Homicide Detectives everything that happened so I'm not sure if I should tell the whole story before it goes to court or whatever they decide to do cuz I'm not sure how it works and I don't want to get in any trouble but I do think there are alot of people who would like to hear exactly what happened.

I'm going to contact the detectives and try to find out some more info but if its ok with them I will email u with the exact story so u can post it and everyone can know the truth. I'm going to add the same pics as an attachment instead this time so hopefully they open different and u can put them up for me. TY

misty said...

This will be my last post i loved drew with all my heart yea we argued friday and i came to the cities drew and i did not break up we had a fight i never said he was delivering a wedding invite drew and i lived in st cloud with his brother and just signed a 6 mth lease and we were not breaking up and i will say no more about this everyone knows the truth also i did not change anything on drews page it is exactly how he left it nicole has always wanted to be his girlfriend ut that never happened cause he would never leave me we loved each other yes we had our problems but who doesnt none of this matters anymore drew is dead and his killer walks free ........one more thing no i will not have moved on with my life in two weeks i was with drew for the last four and a half yrs im lost and i dont know what to do anymore as far as why some of his family are angry at me im not sure but i have never disrespected anyone nor will i ever .........thankyou mimi

misty said...

you know i was thinking if he loved her so much why was she always the one he lied about why did he never leave me for her why god i am so hurt cause he is gone why cant you just leave me alone nicole

Nicole Sterling said...

I haven't posted anything that isn't the truth. Misty and I are both dealing with losing someone we both loved very much! I'm simply trying to deal with my personal loss. Nothing I've said has been meant to hurt misty. Ta me this is about Drew not anyone else, its not about who loved him more or a love triangle. A wonderful man was murdered and its about making sure he is remembered and his murderer is held accountable. Anyone who is leaving comments saying Misty was his heart obviously wasn't very close to him or u would know the truth. Yes he did love Misty n I never denied that but he loved me too, not only were we both very close to him but we both had relationships with him and there is no reason I shouldn't b able to share my story just like anyone else. My intentions r not to make sure people know who I am my intentions r to Horner Drew and make sure he gets Justice. Which is exactily what I'm going to do. I LOVE U Drew. Misty call me, I didn't get my phone back from the police yet but I transfered my # to a new phone if u don't have my new # u know where to get it.

its insane...nicole & this whole blog is insane. she gets you to do what she wants with a 'bribe' and then holds back with the promised information. typical behavior for a psycho. I feel like I've just seen a preview for a Lifetime movie..I cannot believe anybody that is truly grieving someones death would do this. perhaps she was the TRIGGER of the events that happened that night?? maybe? just SICK!

Anonymous said...

if nicole would have actually read and paid attention to Misty's earlier comment. it did not say he was delivering their wedding invitation (cuz I'm pretty sure she would NOT have been invited!)...what misty said was more along the lines of he went there with INVITATION. and I also believe Misty DID say at the bottom of her message that the information came from eye witness Nicole Sterling. also...Misty did NOT say drew was stabbed immediatly. she said he was attacked & fought back with his fists & then stabbed. Nicole...I agree with most of the others that have posted comments. you need to seek medical help. I see YOU as being the problem and drama queen in all of this. somehow 'others' have included Misty in this nonsense. I didn't see Misty doing any of this sort of stuff. I saw her as providing some info to the Northside residents in her earlier post & now she is put in the spot to 'defend' her and Drew's love for eachother. there is no doubt in ANYBODY'S mind (other than, Nicole) that Drew and Misty were soul mates! Drew showed his love for Misty to EVERYONE... & how is it that Nicole was a 'hidden' thing? and she feels like she has the right to do this, not only to Misty but to Drew's family too!

Sweet said...

I don't really think Johnny should be belittled because of the comments that are posted on here. He cannot pick and choose what gets posted and what doesn't. if that were the case he'd have to choose 'sides' and really thats not what I see these blogs are about. I admiit, I was at very disgusted in the 'criminal history' blog. I still feel that wasn't appropriate to do, especially so soon after the murder. but as I follow these blogs I now understand the reasoning behind them. I really believe its not to riducule one side or the other.But to allow the community as much detail about BOTH sides of the story(unlike the mainstream media) Again, I do not live in the North MPLS neighborhoods..and after reading these I blogs, I would be terrified to. My grandparents are buried at Crystal Lake & I prepare myself for the worst when I go pay my respects.Throughout the years, I've watched the area do down hill.

WENDY said...

OK, I HAVE JUST SAT N READ ALL OF THIS AND IT IS STARTING TO PISS ME OFF. N IS PISSEN MANY OFF.

To Sweet: I know who posted that comment, and she wasn't making fun of me...just maybe enjoying the tawdry soap opera a little too much, that's all.

Misty, Nichol and Wendy...
When will we hear from Brandi, Tiff, and Lacy?

Sweet said...

Johnny...in my previous comment I wasn't referring to any particular person or comment. I've just read a whole lot of uncalled for 'jabs' toward you, throughout all of these blogs. I get the fact that people are hurting and angry, and that is totally expected when a death happens. But the threats & name calling and so on is really uncalled for. can't we all just get along?? for the sake of Drew? c'mon ya'll if you don't like what you see...don't read it!usually it causes more hurt than good when harsh angry statements are made. I guess thats what I've been taught by my dad(who was raised in South MPLS-a long time ago) somethings never change though. its a big city and thats where crime happens. no matter what state or city, you live in

WENDY said...

I JUST WANT TO SEE THEM 2 GIRLS KEEP FIGHTING. THEY R BOTH GREAT GIRLS. WE R ALL GREIVING N DONT WANNA HAVE ALL THIS DRAMA. DREW ISNT HERE TO DEFEND HIMSELF.

WE LOSS A GREAT GUY. LETS JUST TAKE A BREAK FROM ALL OF THIS FIGHTING.

RIP DREW

I MEANT TO SAY I DONT WANT TO SEE THEM GIRLS FIGHTING.

I think Wendy meant she does NOT want to see the girls fighting.

LOL.

But I am not sure, perhaps some are secretly entertained by the drama.

OK, so we know Misti and Nicole were in some kind of love triangle.

Who is Wendy, Brandi, Tiff and Lacy?

Am I gonna need one of those boards to draw a chart on? Like on the L word?

Kirstin R said...

I am so sick of all this unneccesary drama on this website. This was all initially posted to try and help find the perpetrator who murdered my cousin, and now it's turning into a battle of who Drew loved more. I don't mean this in disrespect to anybody, but I live in Montana and though Drew and I had not spoken in awhile, I always knew about him and Misty and that she was his only love. I may not personally know Misty but our whole family here in Montana knew that his relationship with Misty was the real deal. This Nichole girl needs to face that fact and stop trying to prove whatever nonsense she feels needs to be proved. If Nichole truly loved my cousin as much as she says she does, then she needs to come forward with the name of the heartless bastard that took Drew's life and took him away from so many people. Nichole, you are coming across as the only person who is suffering from this loss. True, you may have had an affair with Drew, but do not try and turn this into your own little soap opera for your fifteen minutes of internet fame. That's all it will be is your name posted on a blog. When your blog fame is over, we will still be hurting. I am begging you, please stop posting blogs making promises to tell the whole story and the name of the man who caused all this pain, and then make excuses why you cannot do it. All the excuses need to stop. And for someone who claims to have all this love and say she wants to help put "this piece of shit" away for what he did, quit changing you damn story. You go from saying Drew was attacked by your sister's boyfriend to it was self defense on your sister's boyfriends part. In my honest to God opinion this seems to be a case of you retaliating against everyone who was defending Misty and Drew's love. Why else would you be all for catching the killer and in an instant go to defending the killer?! Does the name MIKE sound familiar in any way to you Nichole? Get off your high horse and tell the truth. Bring some justice to Drew's death.

WENDY said...

I AM WENDY.

I KNEW DREW N THE REST OF HIS BROTHERS N COUSINS THRU THEIR FAMILIES GROWING UP. I BABYSAT HIM A COUPLE TIMES. HE WAS A GREAT KID ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE KIDS IN THEIR FAMILIES. THEY R ALL ADULTS NOW N THEY TURNED OUT GREAT. HOW TIME FLIES. I KNOW MISTY N NICOLE THRU FRIENDS N THRU DREW ALSO. I AM MUCH OLDER THEN THESE GUYS.

MISTY N NICOLE...THEY R GREAT GIRLS, N THEY SHOULDNT B FIGHTING. TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME YOUNGINS. DONT FIGHT ON HERE. IF U HAVE TO FIGHT, DO THE TEXT FIGHT. ITS RESOLVES CHIT QUICKER............LOL.

MUCH LOVE
RIP DREW

Johnny Northside said...

So I'm still waiting for the name of a killer, here.

Nicole Sterling said...

I'm sorry! I never meant for this to turn into what it has. A lot of people love Drew! Him passing away is life changing. People r lashing out at me, (Y is it always from anonymous tho?) n it sucks cuz I never meant anything to be negative or make anyone mad or to turn into a debate about relationships. Misty was Drews girlfriend, at the same time I was with him for 2yrs, (Misty n I were both well aware of each other) I left him at the end of the summer, about a week before he passed away we started seeing each other again. So many things r bein said about me n its just like every one has me f**ked up. The only intention I ever had was to honor Drew and shair what I knew of him n our life together. People need to stop acting like I'm here to cause drama or get attention or be selfish. I wanted to write the whole story and tell everyone exactly what happened that night because I know everyone wants to know but after thinking about it I don't wanna say or do anything that could hurt Drews case. I know exactly what happened n I'm gonna use my information to make sure justice is served so to insure I don't give out information that I shouldn't Drews family n I have decided its best to keep Drews story between the Police, Drews immediate family n myself. By the way this will be my last post. "Drew, I'm sorry for all the negativity and drama! U n I know what it was and what we had regardless of what anyone thinks or says, if u were here u would defend me n set everyone strait for actin the way they have been so its all good. I got u, I'm gonna make sure Mike pays for what he did. I love u and miss u!"

Johnny Northside said...

You mean a "vigil," don't you?

Can you say where, exactly? I do not plan to attend, however, if anybody wants to provide me details of the vigil--what was said, who was there--I'd be interested in receiving that information.

Plus, um, what is the name of the guy who killed him? Anybody, anybody? Somebody in the comments said it was Mike Lansky. Can any of the identifiable commenters--Nicole, Misty--somebody who can prove their association by an email with a picture of Drew--can anybody help me confirm this name?

After reading this string of comments, I am reminded of the following exchange from Quinten Tarantino's and Roger Avary's "Pulp Fiction."
From: http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Pulp-Fiction.html


FABIENNE: Butch, whose motorcycle is this?

BUTCH:
It's a chopper.
FABIENNE:
Whose chopper is this?
BUTCH:
Zed's.

FABIENNE:
Who's Zed?

BUTCH:
Zed's dead, baby, Zed's dead.

Clearly Nicole has ZERO intention of revealing the name of the killer of this man she claims she loves so much.
Nicole: there is a reason you are holding back the name if this guy! I did notice you thought you'd randomly throw in the 1st name..but somehow you conveniently left out the LAST name! is it a 'control' thing or is it that you are protecting the guy?? I've read that it was your step-sisters boyfriend....perhaps you were 'with' him to?? it seems to me, that you enjoy being 'the girl behind the scene'& Now that Drew is now in the hands of the creator, his killer is all you have left. you say you are not coming off the events of that night, so justice can be served, I agree with you, that is a wise idea. but I don't believe you EVER had intentions of giving such information to the community of the north side. I would also like to say that giving the name of the killer is NOT going to harm Drew's case at all! so, if you could provide that to Johnny that would be great! even if its in a private email.
also...I would like to explain that I choose to make my comments 'Anonymous'for my own safety. there is a murder on the loose and I don't think it's in my best interest to be displaying my name on a public blog such as this..I'm sure ALL the other anonymous people feel the same way. Either that or they simply don't have an account!
Eagle Child may you rest in peace! no matter what has happened in the past or that night...you were taken from us FAR to early! Peace for now!
