Dunn County Sheriff

(Sheridan, WI) -- Authorities in western Wisconsin say the four people found dead in an abandoned S-U-V near the town of Sheridan are from Minnesota. The Dunn County Sheriff's Office identified the victims as as 26-year-old Matthew Pettus, 30-year-old Jasmine Sturm and 35-year-old Loyace Foreman III all of St. Paul, and 30-year-old Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley of Stillwater. Their bodies were discovered Sunday inside a black S-U-V with Minnesota license plates in a cornfield. Preliminary results of autopsies by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s office shows each died from gunshot wounds. The four victims were friends and were last seen together at a bar early Sunday morning in St. Paul. Police believe they got into a dark colored SUV and were likely killed in St. Paul, and their bodies were then transported to Dunn County Wisconsin and left in the abandoned vehicle. It's believed the driver of the vehicle was taken back to St. Paul in another vehicle, and according to KSTP TV, police have found that other vehicle and have identified the driver but have not yet arrested him.
