On September 12, 2021 about 2:18PM the Dunn County Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call reporting a death in the Town of Sheridan in northern Dunn County. Four bodies were found in an abandoned SUV that was driven into a cornfield in the township. 

“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”, said Sheriff Kevin Bygd.

Today in a press conference  Sheriff Byd discussed the case further. The victims appear to have no connection to the area and are all from the Twin Cities area. An autopsy was performed Monday by the Ramsay County Medical Examiner's Offce on the victims. They all died from gunshot wounds.

The victims are as follows.

Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley, female, 30 years old of Stillwater, MN

Matthew Isiah Pettus, male, 26 years old of Saint Paul, MN

Loyace Foreman III, male, 35 years old of Saint Paul, MN

Jasmine Christine Sturm, female, 30 years old of Saint Paul, MN

 Some further details were given in the press conference held by Sheriff Bygd today at 4 PM in the Dunn County Judicial Center. The press conference was live-streamed by WisCommunity and is shown on this page.
