1993 Missing Person Hang Lee Case Increases Reward
April 08, 2017

Jan. 12, 1993, a snowy Tuesday in St Paul was the last time that Hang Lee (pictured) was seen. Hang Lee’s case remains open for investigation as one of St. Paul’s oldest missing-person cases.  It is not referred to as a homicide however there has been no sign of her since that day in St. Paul. Nor has there been any activity with her social security card which would indicate employment someplace.  

Ms. Lee was a Highland Park High School senior and working at the Wong Cafe on Rice Street at the time of her disappearance.  She was last seen by friend Kia ‘Nikki’ Lee after a job interview with painting company owner Mark Steven Wallace, Kia’s boss, in the Frogtown area of St. Paul.

Police continue to ask people to come forward with information, even if it seems like a small detail and urge person with information contact Crime Stoppers as a safe and anonymous means to bring that information to light. 

Lee’s mother, now 87, said she has forgiven whoever hurt her daughter, but she wants to know where Hang Lee’s remains are so they can give her a proper funeral and burial.

Helpful Bystander's Murder Sought
March 24, 2016

On October 14, 2015,  37-year-old Synika George James lost his life while saving children from gunfire that erupted during a vigil in St. Paul.

James (pictured) died as he was pushing kids out of the way of danger as gunshots erupted while James and others were attending a 6 p.m. memorial gathering for Naressa “NuNu” Turner who died as a result of a shooting in the same Dayton’s Bluff alley, three years prior also on October 14.

While the brief 15 minute vigil of family and friends was underway, witnesses said a vehicle pulled up and its occupants started firing. It is not believed that James, a longtime friend of NuNu’s family was the target. “They were just shooting at everybody,” a witness said. James was attending the vigil held in the alley at Cypress Street and Reaney Avenue with his two older sisters.

The sadness of family and friends of James have led them to raise funds to offer a reward through Crime Stoppers of Minnesota of up to $5,000 for information submitted to Crime Stoppers while remaining anonymous.  It is hoped that somebody who knows the shooter(s) can help in finding those responsible while knowing that their communication with Crime Stoppers is confidential and they will not be revealed to the public.  The murderer of NuNu, Joseph Haywood Campbell has been convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Hit & Run Killer of Jim Nisser Sought
March 14, 2014

On September 11, 2008 Jim Nisser was headed to work at the Minikahda Club riding his bicycle eastbound on Excelsior Boulevard near 32nd Street when he was struck and killed about 4:15 a.m. The hit and run driver has never been found but evidence left at the scene points to a 1996 to 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee that’s tan or light brown. Passers-by that may have seen where the vehicle went, auto repair shops who may remember working on this vehicle or anyone with information about this fatal collision can come forward anonymously.

Relatives and friends recalled Nisser as a gentle spirit who made the coffee every Sunday at Wooddale Lutheran Church in St. Louis Park. As a child with cerebral palsy, Nisser grew up with the diagnosis that he would be lucky to walk. He defied the diagnosis and grew up riding a fleet of Raleigh bicycles, picking out his “rain bike” on the morning of the collision because of the weather.

Who Killed Winona's 'Baby Angel' Infant Girl?
June 17, 2013

The Winona County Sheriff`s Office is still trying to find the mother, and to solve the case, of Baby Angel.  The deceased infant girl was found by boaters floating in canvas and plastic bags in the Mississippi River near Winona on September 5, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. The canvas bag had embroidery on the outside of the bag.  Its tan-colored fabric bag is believed to be from the Mexican resort community of Manzanillo.

The deceased infant girl has been named Baby Angel because four porcelain angel figurines were inside the canvas and plastic bags.  One of the larger angel figurines, measuring nearly 10-inches tall, is dated with the year 2000 and the words, “Anno Domini.” The two smaller blue angels measure three-and-a-half inches tall and contain tiny bells. The 7-pound newborn’s body was wrapped in a dark green T-shirt with a silk-screened image of what appears to be a slice of bread on its front. Also inside the bag was a single piece of dark blue jewelry in the shape of a circular eye pattern (pictured). It is attached to a string of blue and silver beads.

Investigators have no reason to suspect this abandoned baby is connected to three previous cases of dead babies discovered upriver in Goodhue County.  Investigators do believe the baby was in the water for about a day when boaters discovered her floating about six miles south of Winona. 

If you have information about this baby or about her mother, you can help Solve This Crime by submitting a tip on this webpage.  You will remain anonymous and may qualify for a reward.

1997 Ramsey County Murder Still Unsolved
March 29, 2012


The case began as a missing person but soon the Ramsey County investigators classified it as the murder of Toni Ann Bachman.  According to police, reports say Bachman was on the computer on April 25, 1997 when she emailed a friend that her husband Norman was "on his way home to fight. And I MEAN FIGHT." The 38 year-old woman was never seen again.

When Bachman was reported missing weeks later, Ramsey County investigators showed up at the couple`s White Bear Township home where her husband Norman told investigators she left him, but the search by police found evidence that Toni Bachman had been murdered. Even though there was no body of the deceased Bachman found, investigators found blood spatter in the basement, a piece of body tissue on a door handle and evidence that blood was cleaned up. Investigators followed tips and leads to other parts of Minnesota such as Staples and Hillman where her body may have been buried, but found nothing. Her husband has never been eliminated as a suspect, but he has never been arrested or charged.

Information about this crime from friends, neighbors, coworkers or anyone could help investigators bring closure to Bachman’s family.

This case has been featured on You Solve on KSTP-TV.  Thanks to an anonymous donation, useful information about this case qualifies for a reward of up to $1,000 if that information is submitted through Crime Stoppers of Minnesota
