The last-remaining suspects in a recent homicide near Northfield have been arrested in Montana.
This comes more than a week after 55-year-old Chris Lafontaine was found dead in his home in Greenvale Township.
The discovery was made on July 2, after a friend of Lafontaine's witnessed three people fleeing the home in the victim's car. The friend had gone to the house to check on Lafontaine, as he hadn't been heard from in some time.
Two of those suspects were soon arrested by Northfield police, but the third was able to flee on foot. This sparked an alert to local residents, with police warning that the suspect – a 6-foot-tall white man weighing around 155 lbs. – was armed and dangerous.
On Friday, the Dakota County Sheriff's Office announced that the suspect, a 29-year-old man, was arrested near Laurel, Montana, along with a 22-year-old woman.
A news release says the woman was "not on the scene (of the homicide) at the time the other three fled, however through investigation was identified as a suspect in the homicide":
The 29-year-old was later identified as the third individual in the car, authorities say. The victim and the suspects are believed to have known each other.
BringMeTheNews does not typically name suspects until they have been formally charged with a crime.
The investigation into Lafontaine's homicide is still underway, but authorities say there is no threat to the public.
