Anders Odegaard Bio – Anders Odegaard Wiki
Anders Odegaard allegedly beat his ex-wife to death in Minnesota on Tuesday as she clung to the youngest of their five children and two others screamed for help, according to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office.
Anders Odegaard is 31 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
A Minnesota Man has been arrested after authorities say he brutally beat his ex-wife in front of their five young children, resulting in her death.
Anders Odegaard, 31, has been charged with the second-degree murder of his former wife, Carissa Odegaard. He is being held on a $2.5 million bond.
According to court documents obtained by KLTV News, two young boys flagged down a man in Warren, Minnesota, on Tuesday and asked him to call 911 because their mother was “bleeding bad and needed help.” The man called the authorities.
The documents allege that when the deputy entered Odegaard’s home, they found him wearing nothing but a pair of boxer briefs and had blood on his face and hair. “I don’t feel right,” he allegedly told the officer.
The deputy saw 31-year-old Carissa Odegaard lying in a pool of blood in the doorway. She was rushed to the hospital. She was pronounced brain dead on Wednesday.
According to the documents KVRR-TV also obtained, three brothers — ages 9, 8, and 2 — were inside the house during the attack. The documents claim that two other siblings were in their mom’s car and did not see the episode.
The documents state that the 9-year-old told officers that he believed his father had beaten his mother with a knife or spatula. The 8-year-old allegedly said that Anders had beaten Carissa to the floor and was “on top of her choking her.” The documents also allege that the couple’s 2-year-old child was too “traumatized” to respond to authorities’ questions.
Police believe the altercation began when Anders Odegaard refused to allow Carissa to take their kids to church.
People confirm that Anders Odegaard works as an attorney. According to the Minnesota Bar, his license was valid, and there were no complaints against him before this week.
Odegaard has not yet posted the bond. He has not yet entered a plea, and court documents do not reflect an attorney authorized to speak on his behalf.
