St. Cloud Police Believe Missing Student Jesse Dady May Have Fallen Off Railroad Bridge
Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Bridge

New information has been released by the St. Cloud Police Department in the case of missing St. Cloud State University student Jesse Dady.

In an update just before 2 p.m. today, Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton says they received new video footage that shows Dady walking east onto the railroad bridge which spans the Mississippi River. Due to distance and darkness, the video quality is poor, but at about one third of the way across the bridge, Dady can no longer be seen. Police say that Dady may have fallen.

Police say he was alone on the bridge, which is difficult and dangerous to walk on, and that the bridge is not intended for pedestrian use.

Water search efforts had to be cancelled on Monday night because of darkness. On Tuesday, the water search began again and crews from Stearns County and Hennepin County Sheriff’s Departments focused on the area underneath the bridge, but the results were inconclusive. Water searching operations will potentially resume Thursday.

Oxton reaffirmed it is important to note that all of the surveillance video and all other information in this investigation supports the fact that no foul play is suspected. 

Twenty-one-year-old Dady went missing on Saturday, March 26. St. Cloud State University officials have been meeting with Dady’s family, roommates and friends to offer any support that is needed.

Investigative Files Into Wetterling Abduction To Be Released

03/26/2017 - 2:00 PM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - The public may soon have its first look at the investigative file into the 1989 abduction of Jacob Wetterling.

Stearns County officials are entering the final stages of redacting and copying thousands of pages of statements, tips and interview transcripts regarding the 11-year-old boy who was abducted near his St. Joseph home. Chief Sheriff's Deputy Bruce Bechtold tells the St. Cloud Times the cost of preparing the file for release could reach $200,000. Staff will start working on redacting the audio and video transcripts Monday in hopes of releasing the file in the next month or two.

Work on the file began in late October after Danny Heinrich admitted kidnapping, sexually asssaulting and killing Jacob. Heinrich is serving a 20-year sentence for child pornography.

Two People Hospitalized After Crash Along County Road 75

An accident at the intersection of County Road 75 and County Road 134 sent two people to the hospital Thursday afternoon.

Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says 35-year-old Benjamin Schirmers of Sauk Centre was stopped at a red light. He was traveling west on County Road 75 just after 1:30 p.m.

Eighteen-year-old Alisha Ritter of Albany was driving her SUV in the same direction. She didn't see Schirmers' car at the light and rear-ended him.

Both drivers were taken to the St. Cloud Hospital. 

Minnesota House Omnibus Tax Bill Details And Governor Dayton's Response

Minnesota House Omnibus Tax Bill Details And Governor Dayton's Response

Minnesota House Republicans released details on their new tax bill Wednesday.

The new bill is aimed at reducing taxes by more than $1.35 billion over the next two years. The largest feature is to reduce state tax on Social Security income.

House Speaker Kurt Daudt says Minnesotans have waited long enough for meaningful tax relief-it’s time for us to give the surplus back to taxpayers who worked so hard to generate it. The bill puts money back in the pockets of seniors, college graduates struggling with student debt, farmers, and Main Street businesses.

The bill will also outline relief for hometown business owners and farmers. It also includes proposes from the tax bill vetoed by Governor Mark Dayton in 2016.

Dayton responded to the bill saying the Speaker’s budget claim is ridiculously misleading. The governor says budget proposals are starting points, not end points, of the budget process. The cigarette tax was limited to one, very socially expensive activity, and was also intended to discourage smoking. And the gas tax is a user’s tax, which charges people who drive the most on our highways, roads, and bridges. MNDOT estimates that a 10 cent per gallon gas tax increase would cost Minnesota drivers an average of $75 a year, which would be entirely dedicated to improving the conditions on which they drive.

The House Tax Committee is expected to hold public hearings on the bill this week.
