Police in Tennessee have plenty of evidence that they believe shows a Minnesota State University student killed his father just over a week ago, during spring break.
Timothy Jordi was found stabbed to death in his home on March 5th, and a relative identified his estranged son as a possible suspect.
While 21-year-old Joshua Jordi claimed he was on campus at the time, records show that he did not enter Crawford Residence Hall at MSU on March 5th or 6th. Court documents show that Joshua Jordi’s roommate told police he had not seen him either day and when he returned he said he’d gone on a trip.
Size 11 footprints were found at the crime scene, and when Joshua Jordi’s dorm room was searched police found shoes in that size as well as a knife under his bed.
Investigators saw what they believed to be a blood stain in his car, obtained a search warrant, and are examining it for evidence.
In Timothy Jordi’s home in Sparta, Tennessee police found documents that show Joshua Jordi was the beneficiary of a life insurance $50,000 policy in the event of his father’s death.
Jordi is charged with first-degree murder and is being held in the Blue Earth County Jail awaiting extradition to Tennessee.
