On This Date in Minnesota History: February 18

February 18, 2000 – Lorenzo Sanchez was arrested on this date in Waseca, Minn., because of a warrant for his arrest in Steele County and the fact that he resembled the description of a burglary suspect. A search warrant executed on Sanchez’s trailer turned up a number of reported stolen items, including CD cases that were known to have been stolen at the time of Cally Jo Larson’s murder on April 20, 1999. Tests showed Cally Jo’s fingerprints on one of the CD cases. On June 30, 2000, Sanchez was formally charged with first degree murder for the death of Cally Jo Larson.
