The mother of 11 children (ages 5-27), killed by 17 yr old, Michael Richard Swanson of St. Louis Park, MN during his crime spree. The story @ Cops: Teen kills mom of 11, 61-year-old woman

Michael Richard Swanson (17 yrs old) walked into the Crossroads Gas Station on U.S. Highway 18 in Algona just after 9 p.m. Monday wearing a ski mask and demanded cash and cigarettes from the clerk, 47-year-old Vicky Bowman-Hall. Holmes said Swanson shot her even though she complied with the request.

About an hour later, Swanson walked into a Kum and Go convenience store in Humboldt, about 30 miles south of Algona and shot and killed Sheila Myers, 61, who died at the scene, Holmes said.
