U.S. & World

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (KARE) A Minnesota woman studying in the Netherlands is dead after she was stabbed in a student housing complex Wednesday. 

Dutch newspaper The AD reports that 21-year-old Sarah Papenheim was stabbed by a 23-year-old male student following an argument in her third floor apartment. Witnesses heard the victim screaming loudly and called police, who found her unresponsive. 

The suspect fled the scene but was arrested at a station some 60 miles from the murder scene. 

Stephen Kresko, Papenheim’s uncle said over the phone on Thursday that Papenheim was in Netherlands to study psychology. 

“We had talked about being like a counselor, a grief counselor or something like that,” Kresko said. He said his nephew, Papenheim’s brother, died by suicide years ago.
