NO ARRESTS IN DEATH INVESTIGATION AFTER THREE MONTHS

3-months after the remains of two people were found in a fire pit at a property off state highway 89 northwest of Bemidgi, still no charges have been filed… although the main suspect is now behind bars. 44 year old Darren Stebe was arrested in February, and shortly after his arrest, the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement saying Stebe likely would face charges. Since then, however, neither Stebe nor anyone else has yet to be charged. The County Attorney says the reason for that, is simply because prosecutors are not pressed for time since their primary suspect is already in jail.They say they want to sure they have all the pieces put together before they bring charges.
