MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Friends and family of a Minot State University student slain eight years ago want police to dedicate more time and resources to solving the crime.

Eighteen-year-old Anita Knutson, of Butte, was found stabbed to death in her apartment June 4, 2007. Knutson’s father discovered the body of his adopted daughter in her bed. Investigators were unable to solve the crime.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1NToN3J ) friends and family delivered a petition with 1,035 signatures to the police department Tuesday, asking for “Justice for Anita.” Aunt Karen Leier says the group wants to keep the case in the public eye, in the hope that someone will come forward with evidence.

Police Chief Jason Olson says the case is still an open investigation. He says anyone with knowledge should contact authorities.
