Mass. Man Wanted for 76-Year-Old Neighbor's Murder Indicted

A grand jury has indicted a Massachusetts man wanted in the stabbing death of his 76-year-old neighbor.

Prosecutors say 24-year-old Tyler Hagmaier of Plymouth stabbed Quincy College professor Vibeke Rasmussen more than 30 times in her apartment across the hall from his.

Rasmussen was found on May 6 after she did not report to work. That night, Hagmaier's car was found more than 130 miles away at the French King Bridge in Gill.

Authorities believe Hagmaier jumped into the Connecticut River in an attempt to kill himself, but his body has not been found.

Friday, a grand jury in Plymouth County returned an indictment charging Hagmaier with murder. Massachusetts State Police subsequently obtained a warrant for his arrest.

Anyone with information is asked to call (508) 947-8087.
