Victim of fatal stabbing in parking ramp identified; 3 arrested


Authorities identified the woman stabbed to death outside a Minneapolis transit center – and police have arrested three people in connection with the incident.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner confirmed 44-year-old Dargenalla Deloris Wade, of Minneapolis, died from "sharp force injuries" outside the transit center at Ramp A, on First Avenue and Ninth Street, just after 5 a.m. Thursday.

Minneapolis police meanwhile say they have arrested a 21-year-old woman on suspicion of probable cause murder, taking her into custody in south Minneapolis on Thursday evening.

Two men, ages 23 and 44, were arrested at the same time on suspicion of aiding and abetting.

"It is important to note that this was not a random incident; the case involves a fight between people who knew each other," the police said in a press release. "The victim in this case was found in a downtown parking ramp, but the incident and the parties involved in it, have no connection to the ramp whatsoever."

Anyone with more information about the incident should call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or send an anonymous tip to 274637, beginning the message with TIP674, or the MPD tip line at 612-692-8477.
