Summary

During a press briefing Thursday, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi credited the involvement of the FBI, a new homicide investigator on the case offering a "fresh set of eyes" and the enhancement of a 911 call from the morning of the murder in leading to an arrest."This is like putting together a giant puzzle, and sometimes it just takes a lot of time to bring in different pieces, and to look at that and to be able to have somebody new try to find the right piece," Michael Krause, assistant special agent at the Minneapolis field office for the FBI, told reporters.Last year, the FBI also brought in additional trained specialists to help with the investigation, Krause said.The arrest warrant offers details of the 911 call made the morning of April 25, right before Heidi Firkus was killed, and outlines the couple's apparent financial struggles at the time of her death.At 6:31 a.m. that day, Heidi Firkus called 911 from her cell phone to report that someone was trying to break into her house in Saint Paul, according to the warrant."Thirty-eight seconds into the call, as Heidi was giving dispatch her address, a noise similar to a gunshot was heard, Heidi stopped speaking, and the call went dead," the warrant stated.
