The St. Paul Police Department said Monday the four Minnesotans who were found dead in a Dunn County, Wisconsin, corn field had been fatally shot in St. Paul.

This discovery has prompted the SPPD to assume the lead role in investigating the killings of Jasmine Christine Sturm, 30, Matthew Isiah Pettus, 26, Loyace Foreman III, 35, all of St. Paul; and Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley, 30, of Stillwater.

Police did not provide any additional information about the case, only that a "thorough investigation" into their deaths revealed they were killed in St. Paul before a farmer found them in an abandoned vehicle in a cornfield just outside Sheridan, Wisconsin, on Sept. 12.

Officers arrested a 56-year-old man Darren McWright, aka Darren Osborne, 56, in connection to the deaths on Sept. 15. He's being held in jail on "several" outstanding warrants, police said. 

His son, Antoine Suggs, 38, turned himself into police in Gilbert, Arizona, after police said he was wanted for questioning. He's awaiting extradition back to Minnesota.

They have been charged in Dunn County, Wisconsin, with four counts of hiding a corpse, as a party to a crime, the Pioneer Press reports. However, they could face more serious charges, the sheriff said. 

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 651-266-5650.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are also working on the case.
