On This Date in Minnesota History: March 15

March 15, 1974 – Eunice “Kronholm, wife of the president of the Drovers State Bank of South St. Paul [Minn.] was kidnapped” outside her home in Lino Lakes, Minn., as “she was scraping ice off the windshield of her car” before heading to the beauty shop. She walked away free three days later when news of the capture of one of the kidnappers was announced by the media. All but $10,000 of the $200,000 ransom paid by her husband Gunnar Kronholm was recovered.
