Last Thursday, the 25th, a bizarre scenario lead to the death of an Ole grad. Kate Ann Olson, class of 2006, answered a Craigslist ad for a nanny job and was killed by a 19 year old kid.

Neither Chris nor I could place her, even though as we looked through photos of her, she was often with groups of our friends. I finally discovered a connection today- one of my teachers from Tartan was Mrs. Olson, Kate's mom. Mrs. Olson was so excited when she found out that Lindsey and I would be going to St. Olaf, because her daughter was going to be an Ole too. We saw her on campus regularly when she was visiting Kate, helping her move in or out of dorms, Christmas fest time, graduation.

I'm sorry, Mrs. Olson :(
