The article linked above is from August of 2013 and references the murder charges. The jail roster shows Foresta was free for a while, but picked up in May of this year on charges of robbery, assault and trespass plus the old murder charge. (There's some old juvenile court thing listed, too, which is odd since this man is 34 years old!)
But here's where it connects to North Minneapolis. I hadn't written about this murder because, well, it was South Minneapolis and neither suspect was known to be from North Minneapolis. Foresta is from Cottage Grove and Turner is from St. Paul.
Or so we were led to believe. The jail roster shows Foresta's address as 1715 Glenwood Ave. N., an address in North Minneapolis.
And oh!!!! Guess who turns up as the owner? This is a real blast from the past! It's William H.T. McGaughey Jr., (pronounced "Mah-Goy) the esteemed elder statesman of the Twin Cities "Landlord Politics Dot Com" clique and sometimes "also ran" candidate for the Independence Party. (Independent of what? Victory, I'm guessing)
Of course, just because somebody is listed at a particular address on the jail roster doesn't mean there's an actual connection to the property. (Eye roll) HEAVENS NO!!!
I mean, my goodness, this could all be part of an elaborate plot to sully the good name of William Mc(Oh, my word, do I have to spell it?) before his next run for office, with victory so near it can be TASTED like, like...
An olfactory hallucination! Which are the most severe kind, believe it or not, even worse than auditory hallucinations because olfactory hallucinations originate in the cerebral cortex, the center of higher thinking which lets you, for example, pick a good political party to join.
In any case...
NO MURDER SUSPECT lists an address in North Minneapolis and escapes the giant "information sucking sound" of the Johnny Northside blog.
No, not even if it comes to my attention nearly a year after charges. In a fight to improve our neighborhood and push toward an "urban utopia," this blog connects the alleged CRIMINALS in our neighborhood with the PHYSICAL ADDRESSES where they nest.
Don't want your name and property address on this blog? Well, screen your tenants carefully. Place that in your "Landlord Politics Dot Com" pipe and smoke it.
