I want to make a note here, while I'm working on following up on this story. Andrew Rekdahl was not, to my knowledge, convicted of any crimes at the time of his death nor did he plead guilty to any crimes. I have heard from a third party source that the charges were recently dropped, but I am working on confirming this information.
