Body of 'predatory offender' wanted by police found in central MN


A body found in an empty home in central Minnesota is that of a "predatory offender" who was being hunted by law enforcement across the state.

A statement from the Department of Public Safety sent to BringMeTheNews confirms that the body of Ryan Clover was found at a property in Paynesville on Tuesday.

It is believed that Clover took his own life, with a preliminary autopsy finding he died from asphyxia as the result of hanging.

The 28-year-old had been the subject of a manhunt relating to allegations that he made terroristic threats and failed to register as a predatory offender.

At one point last month, Clover fought off and escaped Paynesville Police as they attempted to apprehend him.

Authorities considered him possibly armed and dangerous, and warned that he had talked about hurting himself and law enforcement.
