Merianne Lorentson was murdered fourteen years ago at her apartment. We hope her soul received relief to receive justice.
Merianne Lorentson was killed in her apartment brutally by the killer, stabbed as many times as thirty times. Why does the killer express so much hatred against her?
It was indeed sad news as she was left a child 5 years old then behind. Losing a mother at an early age is sad some as that’s an important time for any kid to be with her mother.
Who Was Merianne Lorentson?
Lorentson was the single mother of five years old kid when she was killed. She was an aspiring model and was 24 years of age when unfortunately she had to leave the world.
She might have never thought that March 9, 2007, would be the black day of her life. The model was found dead at an apartment in the 10400 block of Kent-Kangley Road.
The mother of five was stabbed in her head, neck, and body according to the King County Medical Examiner’s autopsy report. Merianne Lorentson was born on 5th September 1982.
Her parents were Jerry and the late Marlene Sloan Lorentson. Jerry Lorentson was a former King County prosecutor who died in 2009. The official involved said it could not be a random kill.
Luckily, Merianne’s daughter Jade was not present at the crime scene when she was attacked and killed. King County Prosecuting Attorney Norm Maleng called it a ‘terrible tragedy.’
Her brother said earlier, “She wanted she and my niece to be either models or on TV. She was well on her way to making that dream come true.” But her life had been taken.
