Pigman-Kruse attended Worthington Community College, where she earned her associate’s degree.

Christopher Kruse and Jan were wed on October 7, 1995. Bailey Kruse is the daughter of the couple.She passed away when she was 40 years old.

What was her cause of death?

In their modest Brewster, Minnesota home, Kruse claimed they were dozing off when he heard the shot.

Kruse checked on his daughter in a different room before reporting the crime to the police.

According to Kruse, the unknown intruder entered through the back door.

Pigman-death Kruse’s had not been caused by a physical altercation, according to Jan’s autopsy, but she was almost certainly awake at the time.

Was her killer caught?

Chris Kruse was charged with first-degree premeditated murder in March 2019 for killing his wife.

Two 12-gauge shotgun shells that matched Kruse’s shotgun were found at the crime scene.

Even though Kruse claimed his wife was killed by an intruder who broke in, he did nothing to beef up security in the days after the murder.

Kruse was found not guilty on February 13, 2020, after the jury deliberated for 12 hours.

Since then, the investigation has been finished.

The episode will be rebroadcast on March 19, 2023, as part of Dateline Weekend on NBC.

On Sunday at 7 PM ET, NBC will air the Far From Spider Lake episode.
