Memorial, blog post by John Hoff
This blogger would have written more about Meranda Jean Erickson, suspect in the shooting of DOC fugitive Landon J. Pederson, but I had to rush off to a meeting about Level Three Sex Offender concentration in North Minneapolis. A blogger's work is never done. JNS blog still had the name before any other media entity.
In fact...let me check something, here...
Yes, this blog is still the only media entity to publish her name, other than half a dozen "mug shot" websites, none of which actually has her mugshot. Some of those sites do have some interesting details, however, about a previous arrest...
Erickson was arrested on assault charges April 2 of this year. More than one online roster scraping mugshot site lists the assault charge, but Just Mug Shots Dot Com has the most detail on the charges, as follows:
Good to know.
Erickson has had a few scrapes in civil court, too, as follows:
Khan sure knows how to pick his tenants, doesn't he? What on earth is he using for criteria? Is he sort of HOPING they will be lousy tenants? To what end?
The media reports say there was a male suspect arrested, too. JNS blog is trying to track down his info but doesn't have it, quite yet.
All in all, this looks like yet another example of the desperate, down-and-out criminal class preying upon itself on the Northside. Decent people need not be alarmed as long as they don't consort with layabouts, no-accounts and ne'er-do-wells.
Oh, that reminds me...
The landlord of Meranda Erickson's home address (2401 Ilion Ave. N.) is, of course, notorious slumlord Mahmoud Khan. Looks like an American citizen has died from from gunfire in the hellhole conditions created by Khan.
I wonder if Khan gets brownie points for that with his friends and family in Pakistan?
