Police investigating the murder of Keisa Lange in St. Cloud have made three arrests.
St. Cloud Police Department on Thursday evening provided an update to the killing of Lange, who was found shot dead by the side of the road on the 4300 block of Cooper Avenue South on June 3.
A 33-year-old woman who was already in custody for a previous unrelated child endangerment case has now been arrested for aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting kidnapping in connection with Lange's death.
Two men, aged 23 and 26 respectively, were also arrested Thursday afternoon.
The younger man was arrested by Dakota County deputies in Apple Valley at around 1:10 p.m., the older man was arrested by Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension officers in the Wisconsin Dells at around 4 p.m.
Police have previously said there are "notable similarities" between the death of Lange and that of Janesa Lashay Harris, 28, who was found fatally shot in her St. Cloud apartment a day before Lange was found.
However, on Thursday police said it is still unclear if there is a direct connection between the two deaths.
Lange's mother, Janna Meyer, paid tribute to her daughter this week, saying: "What do I want people to remember about her? Everything: She was an amazing person — it's not that she didn't have some struggles, she did — but she was not a bad person, she was not a mean person, she was not an evil person in any way, and she wasn't a piece of trash that deserved to be thrown there. She was so loved."
