Riddle me this: Why would the mainstream media report about a murder in North Minneapolis and go out of their way to say it happened on the 2300 block of Queen Ave. N. and not mention the specific address?
But then, in the "B roll" footage for the story, the camera focuses on "2311" as the street address? (Click here for that story)
Well, if that address is of interest, let's dig into that address. Keeping in mind that much depends on whether the choice of "B roll" has any logic or was just a picture to flash across the screen...
The address in question is a duplex, a fact mentioned in media coverage about the murder of a woman in her 40s with two children. The master address for the duplex is 2309 Queen Ave. N. and the property in question is a rental owned by James E. Swartwood of 5537 Dupont Ave. S. The address was in foreclosure in 2007. No sales information is on the city property website because the city property website sucks as usual.
Three names turn up at the address over the years.
* Keyanna Reed, whose cell phone was listed at that address and turns up online. This name is hard to nail down, but I have strong indications she is NOT in her 40s.
* One of the jail rosters I publish monthly shows "Arthur Almyiorn," whose date of birth is 9/11/89.
Of course, the only place on the internet that name shows up (Almyiorn, Arthur) is my republication of the jail roster, leading me to believe that name is fake, misspelled, or this guy is some illegal alien whose contact with the American judicial system was oh-so-brief.
* Yvette Pigrum lived there at one time, according to Radaris. Her birthday is in July of 1964.
All in all, I can't get a very good grip on this one to pull any facts loose.
I need a NAME.
