Key Remains Still Missing In Albrecht Case -- Another Search Considered

MANKATO – Law enforcement investigating the death of a rural Mapleton man say they are not ruling out a fourth search.

While DNA has already proven remains found south of Mankato belong to Matthew Albrecht, Blue Earth County Sheriff Capt. Rich Murry says there is more to be found.

"There's remains out there yet that we haven't found," says Murry. "We would continue to hold out hope that we might be able to find some of that."
With the recent recovery of Albrecht’s wallet, Murry believe most of Albrecht’s personal items have been found, key remains are still missing.

"There some that would be more valuable to us from the standpoint of maybe helping determine a cause of death."

Items recovered to date range from his cell phone, glasses and clothing to various human bones.

Albrecht was reported missing in April 2010 after last being seen walking in Mankato. In December 2010 a dog carried a human leg bone into his yard south of Mankato. Additional spring searches recovered more remains and personal items belonging to Albrecht. This spring a DNA test on the human leg bone confirmed it belonged to Albrecht.
