MAPLEWOOD, Minn. (KMSP) -

Maplewood police and Minnesota BCA agents continue to investigate the death of 16-year-old Anna Hurd of North St. Paul, whose body was found early Saturday morning in Hillside Park.

Hurd's body was found alongside a walking path in a wooded area around 4:30 a.m. Saturday. Emergency responders received a 911 call saying a woman needed immediate medical attention.

By the time paramedics arrived, Hurd was pronounced dead. She had been stabbed multiple times.

Her boyfriend, Anthony Mitchell, told FOX 9 he was the person who made the 911 call. He explained Hurd left his nearby home on foot and never made it to a friend's house, so he went looking for her.

Friends, family and loved ones gathered for a candlelight vigil after sunset at the spot in Hillside Park where Anna Hurd was found.

On Sunday, Maplewood police said they are no longer searching for a person of interest initially reported to be in the park at the time of the incident.

Officers went door-to-door handing out a crime alert, asking anyone who saw anything suspicious to come forward.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
