On This Date in Minnesota History: April 21

April 21, 1963 – “Richard Sharpe, one of two suspects arrested by Phoenix, Ariz., police Friday, April 19, in connection” with the murder of Carol Thompson, has implicated Dick W. C. Anderson, the second suspect arrested in Phoenix, as the actual murderer.  Sharpe said Anderson accepted an offer to kill Mrs. Thompson from Norman Mastrian, also arrested on Friday at his home in Spring Lake Park. At this time, police were offering no reason as to why Mastrian would have wanted Mrs. Thompson killed.
