A man admitted in court that he killed 12- year- old Cally Jo Larson when she arrived home from school as he was burglarizing her family's Waseca, MN home in April 1999. In a surprise guilty plea, Lorenzo Sanchez chose a chance at parole in 30 years rather than face a March 27 trial that could have put him behind bars for the rest of his life. A phony Texas identification card (Sanchez is an illegal immigrant [alien] from Mexico) may have led to Cally Jo's murder. Sanchez told District Court Judge Lawrence Collins that he burglarized the Larson home and left, then realized he had misplaced his ID card. He returned to the house and was looking for the card when Cally Jo arrived home from school.
