The Murder of Adelle Jensen, A Shocking True Crime Story
For nearly four years, thirty-year-old Joshua Dow told the family of Adelle "Addie" Jensen and Minneapolis police detectives that he had no idea what had happened to the twenty-five-year-old woman.
As far as he could tell, she'd just vanished off the face of the Earth in 2019. Or maybe, he speculated, Adelle killed herself.
Joshua told one lie after another. Today, everyone knows the truth. Adelle didn't just disappear.
"On Nov. 18, 2015, around 5 a.m., Jensen was shot by Joshua Dow in his home in north Minneapolis. Dow took Jensen's body to a warehouse where he concealed her," says a press release from the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.
Joshua not only killed Adelle — his girlfriend and the mother of their child — he cut up her body and hid the corpse in a warehouse.
But Joshua feared someone would discover Adelle's remains. So, the Attorney's Office says he "disposed of the remains" across the city of Minneapolis.
It took four years, but homicide detectives finally cracked the case, and Joshua admitted to the whole thing. He did a plea deal and confessed to second-degree murder in November.
On Dec. 4, 2019, Joshua was taken away to a state prison where he'll spend the next twenty years.
During the sentencing, six members of Adelle's family spoke, including her mother.
"For the past four years, Joshua Dow has created many victims. [Victim's minor daughter] has been without her mother, our girls have been without their sister, we have been without our beloved daughter," Cinda Jensen said.
"And many, many family members and friends have been devastated by the horrific murder of Adelle Katherine Jensen," Cinda also said. "Joshua Dow is solely and heinously responsible for taking away a beautiful young soul from God's world."
