Four dead at North Dakota murder scene

National

(KFYR/NBC News) — Police are releasing few details in the murder of four people found dead inside a North Dakota business early Monday.

The bodies were found inside RJR Maintenance and Management in Mandan.

Mandan police say they were shocked about what they found when they arrived at the business: the bodies of three men and one woman. They say there is no suspect at this time.

“These four people didn’t do it themselves,” said Mandan Police Chief Jason Ziegler.

Ziegler says they are actively looking for a suspect, but says the public isn’t in any danger at this time, based on how the crime scene is contained.

Ziegler says it’s a rare type of crime scene, but wouldn’t elaborate on what that meant.

“We’re trying to get in, and processing the scene, it’s quite a large crime scene, so it’s not gonna be something that’s easy for us to get in and do quickly,” he said.
