Affidavit: Bloody tub, quilt found in connection with Schunk murder case

A search warrant affidavit reveals that police discovered a plastic tub with a "significant amount" of blood and a bloodstained quilt in a garage in a Rosemount townhouse, evidence that offers additional clues into the death of Anarae Schunk, the Star Tribune reports.

Schunk, 20, disappeared Sept. 22 and her body, which had significant stab wounds, was found nine days later in a ditch in Lonsdale.

Police say Ashley M. Conrade, 24, owns the townhouse, where she lived with her boyfriend, Anthony Lee Nelson, 31, also known as Shavelle Chavez-Nelson.

The affidavit says officers found a 2-by-3-foot tub in a Sept. 24 search of the townhouse "containing a significant amount of suspected blood. Inside the tub also was a quilt containing suspected blood. The tub was located in the garage above the rafter area."

Nelson is a suspect in the Schunk case, but has not been charged in her death. He has been charged, however, with first- and second-degree murder in the shooting death of Palagor O. Jobi, 23, outside Nina’s Grill in Burnsville in the early-morning hours of Sept. 22.

Schunk was seen with Nelson and Conrade on surveillance video at the bar that same night, the Sun This Week says.

Conrade has been charged with a felony count of aiding an offender.

According to the Pioneer Press, Rosemount Police officials said last month that it could take several weeks for charges to be filed in the Schunk case. Schunk's family has expressed frustration with the lack of information available in the investigation.

An amended criminal complaint filed Monday also offered additional information in the Jobi shooting investigation.
