A Minnesota man who was recently released from prison after being convicted of making pipe bombs is now wanted in connection with a murder.
A federal warrant has been issued to find Erik James Reinbold in connection to a killing in rural Pennington County on Friday.
The Pennington County Sheriff's Office says Reinbold, 44, may be armed and should not be approached.
Reinbold was given a five-year prison sentence after being convicted in Fergus Falls in late 2018 for possessing pipe bombs.
During the search of his hunting property near Oklee, Minnesota, police also found a 32-page notebook on Reinbold's desk entitled: "How one person can make a difference: Instruction booklet at the HCU (homemade commando university)."
This book, the Grand Forks Herald reports, was a manual on how to "start the second American Revolution and win."
But Reinbold was released this past March for "compassionate care" reasons because of his medical issues and those of his family, which came after his wife contracted and recovered from COVID-19, with Reinbold's parents having to watch their children.
Prior to this, Reinbold pleaded guilty to an incident in 2015 when he rammed his pickup into a car with his wife and children inside.
Anyone with information should call the sheriff's office at 218-681-6161.
