Overview of George Jensen
His murder remains unsolved...
George Daniel Jensen, a 61 year old WWII veteran and father of four children, was brutally murdered in his own trailer one night in November 1979. George was disabled from a prior stroke, had no usage of one arm and one leg, and walked with a cane.
Seemed to be abundant that evening, as police found George strangled with an electrical cord. He was beaten with his own ash tray, and stabbed excessively. His car, a 1977 Plymoth Volare, was reported missing and then found two days later parked at the downtown bus transport hub. Prints were recovered from the car, but there is no more information about George's case or what happened to the car afterwards.
George will be missed by many
George was known for his acts of kindness, including helping local prostitutes leave their lives on the street. He was seen passing out pamphlets and was reported to help a young, pregnant woman leave her life on the street and help with some of her living expenses. As George was a WWII veteran, he was buried at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
