In Minneapolis, Mn, according to the Star Tribune newspaper, Cameron Moser is currently held on a 1 million bond after killing Bethany Bernatsky in what police say is a mistaken identity killing. Apparently, Moser was aiming to murder his ex-girlfriend.
The fatality occurred near the Cozy Bay Resort on Lake Edward in Nisswa. Around 11:00 pm, local police were called after nearby neighbors heard gunshots.
The intended victim’s father, Bret Jevning, told the Star Tribune that Moser had purposely parked his RV across the street from the resort. Reports show Moser was upset that Jevning’s daughter was staying sober and that Jevning would not allow him near her.
According to Bethany’s brother, Ben Bernatsky, his sister and Moser’s ex-girlfriend had similar features. “They have the same body structure, height, and hair color,” he told the Star Tribune.
When police arrived on the scene, Moser, 29, was “armed with a rifle and a handgun.” And after 90 minutes of negations with him, Moser finally agreed to surrender. After police detained Moser, they searched resort cabins and discovered Bethany’s bloodied body, which included a bullet hole in her head.
“Bethany believed that each and every person had value and treated them accordingly,” a friend of hers wrote on Facebook. “She made people feel they were loved and important, especially the broken that needed it the most. … May her legacy stay alive by making the world a better place through each of us helping others understand their value and importance in this life.”
Moser’s next court appearance is Oct. 20th
