Man in custody for death of roommate in Otter Tail County
PELICAN RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) — A man who informed sheriff’s deputies of a death at his home in western Minnesota has been arrested after a body was found buried on his property.
Otter Tail County sheriff’s officials say the 25-year-old Detroit Lakes man was arrested Friday after informing them of an incident that resulted in a death.
On Saturday, detectives uncovered the body of 28-year-old Dylan Butler at the property north of Pelican Rapids. Authorities say it appeared Butler, who lived at the house with the suspect since May, had been shot.
