The mother of slain Cold Spring, Minn., Police Officer Tom Decker said she is confident in the state and local investigators who are looking for a suspect, KARE 11 reports.

Rosella Decker told KARE 11 she believes police are doing a "great job" and the only person she blames is her son's killer.

No one has been charged in the case and no weapon has been found. An FBI dive team began searching the Sauk River in Cold Spring on Monday, and investigators Monday said they were looking for a black van with a loud muffler seen leaving the scene of the shooting, MPR reported.

Meanwhile, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., proposes naming a Cold Spring post office for Decker, KSTP reports.

Decker, 31, was shot Nov. 29 behind Winner’s Bar in Cold Spring as he was on his way to check on a man who was reportedly suicidal.
