Fairbault man who allegedly murdered an Elysian woman appears in court
MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - On May 30, 25-year-old Sabrina Schnoor was found shot to death underneath the I-35 overpass in Owatonna.
Multiple surveillance videos led police to believe 38-year-old Jason Lee Horner was the last person to see Schnoor alive.
Videos outside of local businesses in Owatonna show Horner and Schnoor together the night before she was found dead.
Allegedly, the two were walking under the overpass together after Horner pushes Schnoor.
An hour later, Horner leaves the overpass alone.
While using a search warrant, police found a pair of clothes from Horner’s wardrobe that match from the videos.
A witness told police that Horner had a gun, but didn’t describe it.
On June 1, an autopsy found that Schnoor died from a gunshot wound to her mouth.
The examiner also found that Schnoor had a skull fracture and blood on the surface of the brain, that happened before being shot.
Horner is charged with 2nd degree murder and possession of a firearm.
He remains in the Steele County Jail on 250-thousand dollars bail.
His next court date is June 29th.
Correction: Horner has been charged, as opposed to a previous headline that was published.
