ALEXANDRIA, Minn. — The disappearance of Jacob Wetterling has been one of the most talked about cases in Minnesota history. Now it is up to an Alexandria judge to decide if the Wetterling family's request to keep some details of that investigation private is allowed under the state or federal constitution. A hearing Friday, Feb. 2, in Alexandria will lay out arguments in the open records case on the Wetterling investigative file. The ruling by Judge Ann Carrott will set an important precedent for Minnesota criminal cases.
After three full days of searching, the body of an Alexandria man missing since Thursday, April 6, was found Wednesday morning in Lake Agnes.

Alexandria police blocked off the area around Big Ole Central Park in Alexandria about 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 12.

ALEXANDRIA, Minn.—It may have looked like just an inflatable orange raft used in the Saturday ice rescue on Lake Ida about 10 miles north of Alexandria, but there is more to it than meets the eye. The Nebulus Emergency Flotation device was created in Minnesota more than a decade ago specifically for ice rescues like the one that got a man and his daughter safely to shore after their utility vehicle broke through the ice.
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. - A home here appeared to be a total loss after a fire broke out early Wednesday. Firefighters were called just before 6:30 a.m. to 1506 Lakeside Drive, an area not in the city limits, which meant there were no fire hydrants accessible. Forada, Garfield, Carlos and Osakis departments were called into assist the Alexandria Fire Department, using tankers to haul water for a hydrant a few blocks away. "It's going to be a total loss, I'm sure," Alexandria Fire Chief Jeff Karrow said at the scene.
It was a Big Foot and scary clown sighting all rolled into one. After a rash of people around Minnesota and other parts of the country reporting making false claims of scary clowns carrying chainsaws and the other horror movie weapons, a creepy clown was reported on McKay Avenue in Alexandria on Friday. While the siting was real, the clown was not. It actually was Big Foot, or rather a statue of Big Foot dressed as a clown.
