Complaint in the death of and funeral information for Jessica Rose Hanson





TLDR: Witnesses to the hit-and-run were able to get a license plate number of the fleeing vehicle.  ABDIRAHMAN ABDI ALI confesses to hitting a person while driving on Pleasant Avenue, stating he was fleeing from being shot at, later telling his mother that he thought he hit a bicyclist.  The defendant is in custody.

Jessica's funeral is set for Thursday, July 11th at Zion Lutheran Church in Hoffman, Minnesota.  Visitation is July 10th from 4-7pm.

Rest In Peace, Jessica.  I did not know you, but from what I've heard from others, I'm sure I would have liked you.  I hope we can all learn something from this tragic and untimely death.
