DUNN COUNTY (WQOW) -- Dunn County's sheriff said they are looking at everybody and every possibility as they try and find out who killed four people found in Dunn County. He also says he doesn't think the suspect, or suspects, are in our area anymore.

Sheriff Kevin Bygd said he doesn't think the suspects are local because he, "can't suspect somebody locally of randomly killing four people from the Twin Cities." He added because of that, he thinks they left in a different vehicle.

"We are confident this was a place that these victims were randomly brought to," Bygd said.

Bygd said two of the victims are brother and sister, and one was a boyfriend of another victim. None of them have connections to this area.

As for a motive?

"That one is a mystery," Bygd said.

He added they cannot rule out drugs, but that isn't known as a motive right now.

Bygd said, "everyone is a suspect at this point," and they are investigating all victim acquaintances.

In his 35 years in Dunn County law enforcement, he said this type of case is a first for him.


DUNN COUNTY (WQOW) - We now know the names of four people found dead Sunday in Dunn County, but there is still no indication a killer has been located.

Dunn County Sheriff Kevin Bygd said the people found dead are Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley, 30; Matthew Isiah Pettus, 26; Loyace Foreman III, 35; and Jasmine Christine Sturm, 30.

Flug-Presley is from Stillwater, Minnesota while the other three are from St. Paul.

Autopsies show all four died from gunshot wounds.

“Our hearts go out to the family and friends of these victims. I wish we could release more details of our
investigation but we have to balance the public’s desire to know the details with running the risk of
harming our investigation and losing evidence for building a good homicide case," Bygd said.
