Here is an update to this murderer story. My dates may be slightly off.
In November 2014, the girl and the murderer fled to Alaska to start a new life. She never told her job or parents, just up and left. The father received texts indicating the daughter needed money. The father was convinced that the guy killed his daughter and was on the run. He called the cops and wanted them to break into the apartment and said there was a “50/50 chance she was dead in the apartment”. Upon further investigation, store videos along the route showed both ‘kids’ were still alive.
The couple had driven to Washington, and took the ferry to Juneau. They had a dog with them but left the car in Washington. A nationwide arrest warrant was issued due to him having a probation condition to not leave MN.

After the arrest, the girl’s father flew to Washington and drove back with the girl. The guy was extradited back to MN sometime in February 2015. He spends the next few months in jail, and was eventually sent to St Peter, MN (a jail where they have a hospital and psych ward) for six months and they attempted to determine if he was competent to stand trial for his probation violation. His antics in the courtroom were suspect enough to make the Judge wonder.
After a return to county jail, and a competent to stand trial verdict, he had his probation violation hearing on 4/1/2016. He was given his original sentence of 153 months, less time served of 753 days. In all, he will serve another ~6.5 years.
In MN, a criminal serves 2/3 of his time in jail, and 1/3 on probation. There is no time off for good behavior. Everyone serves 2/3.
So, I guess that’s a good end to the story…
