ST. STEPHEN, Minn. (AP) — Sheriff’s officials are investigating a death in Stearns County.
Gary Granquist said that sheriff’s deputies informed him they found a body on his property in St. Stephen.
“He (deputy) finally told me they found a woman in the ditch dead, so I don’t know how that happened, if she got hit by a car,” Granquist said. “When I was sitting on the deck out here earlier, I did hear like a shot or maybe a firework or something. It’s very strange for this to happen out here in the country.”
The sheriff’s office said it would release more information about the investigation.
