The former Minneapolis Police Officer that murdered George Floyd is now a free man. Derek Michael Chauvin posted a $1,000,000 bond this morning and went home. Hennepin County Jail records list his release address (pictured above) as 7517 17TH ST N, Oakdale, Minnesota 55128. However, the reporter in the video below say that the house in Oakdale was sold in September and that he would not be living there, so did he give the jail a fake release address or is that the address that the have the jail when booked and they have not updated it with his release address? We do not know at this time. We do know that Chauvin should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. Avoid at all costs unless very well prepared. We are listing his addresses because of the extreme indifference for human life that he has demonstrated. He is a danger to any community he is in. We ask that this information be used for non-violent purposes only. Please do not damage property or harm any people at that location.
Derek Chauvin also owns a vacation home in Florida at 7330 Brightland Street, Windermere, Florida 34786. Black Lives Matter picketed this location back in May shortly after the murder of George Floyd. Public records indicate that Chauvin's estranged wife, former Mrs. Minnesota Kellie Chauvin currently resides there, probably as part of their separation and pending divorce. If you protest there please leave here alone.
Derek Chauvin has also been linked to a residence at 3172 Frontier Drive, Saint Paul, Minnesota 55129 as recently as earlier this year. We do not know what connection if any that he has with the place at present. We stress that we do not know if he has anything to do with this address, so absent confirmation of his presence we ask that people don't do anything there beyond surveillance for the limited purpose of determining if Chauvin is there.
UPDATE: Protests are being organized all over the country tonight. People are rightfully angry. We always felt that Chauvin's bail was too low. People typically only have to post about 10% of their bail unless full bond is ordered, we are not sure which is the case here. Chauvin probably could have posted $100,000 months ago since he owns property and was gainfully employed, but he is facing tax evasion charges so maybe he had to sell the Oakdale house last month in order to post. His wife separated and filed for divorce, so she probably did not help him. He may have also been helped by a back the blue bail fund.
UPDATE: We have added a new video below that discusses more details about his bond such as it being posted by a bail bond company and that Chauvin himself had to post very little of it. We believe the company to be A-Affordable Bail Bonds of Brainerd, Minnesota, but that the bond is actually insured by a California company. That means that if Chauvin runs they are on the hook and a bounty hunter will be sent after him. He also cannot leave the state of Minnesota without written permission from the court, which rules out him staying at his Florida address at this time.
