The man labeled a "person of interest" by police in a murder investigation in Granite Falls is still at large, but authorities say they've located his vehicle.

According to a WCCO report, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety said Wednesday that the 1996 GMC Sierra pick-up truck belonging to 28-year-old Andrew Joseph Dikken was found north of Belview, Minn., which is about 20 miles southeast of Granite Falls.

Police have been looking for Dikken since Monday, when a woman was found dead in her home early that morning. The West Central Tribune reported the victim was identified as 26-year-old Kara Ann Monson. An unidentified man was also shot and suffered critical injuries.
