(Mankato, MN) – A 21-year-old student at Minnesota State University, Mankato is now in the Blue Earth County Jail, accused in the killing of his father in Tennessee
Joshua Nathanial Jordi was arrested by Mankato police on Sunday night and is awaiting extradition to Tennessee, where he’s charged with first degree murder.
According to the complaint, authorities in White County, Tennessee, conducted a welfare check on 50-year-old Timothy Jordi on March 8th. When they arrived at his home in Sparta, they found his body on the floor of his bedroom with multiple stab wounds.
Police suspected the son, Joshua Jordi, and say he was not on campus or at his mother’s home at the time of the killing. That led officers to search his MSU dorm room where they found “items commonly associated with the concealment of a crime,” including latex gloves, plastic bags and an extra set of shoes.
