Police release 911 transcript in teen murder case


Before 16-year-old Anna Hurd was found dead near a walking path in Maplewood's Hillside Park, her 17-year-old boyfriend was heard sobbing by police dispatchers as he and his mother called 911.

According to a transcript of the call (below) obtained by the Pioneer Press, the boy claims he found Anna unresponsive in a wooded area, her belongings strewn about, and tried to help her.

Boy: "She was dragged into the trees on the ground, her stuff is all over the trail."

Fire dispatcher: "Okay, was she bleeding or anything like that?"

Boy: "Yes, it's all over my hands because I tried to give her CPR...she has no pulse, she wouldn't wake up."

The boy, who is not being named by BMTN because he's a juvenile, is charged with two-counts of second-degree murder.

According to the charges, the 17-year-old told investigators he and Anna left the boy’s home in Maplewood between 1:30 and 2:30 a.m. to go for a walk. The two got into an argument, so the boy returned home without Anna and claims she walked to a friend’s house.

After not hearing from her, the boy went looking for her and returned home a second time, claiming he found her on the trail and asked his mother to call 911.

The court documents state the boy gave numerous inconsistent statements about his actions that morning.

Investigators searched his home and found blood evidence in the bathroom. DNA testing confirms that the blood found is Anna’s.

On the phone, dispatchers asked the boy if he had hurt Anna. "No I didn't, I just found her," he said.

The boy made his first court appearance Wednesday alongside his parents. A hearing on April 3 will determine whether he can be tried as an adult.
