Sheriff Kevin Bygd said he doesn't think the suspects are local because he, "can't suspect somebody locally of randomly killing four people from the Twin Cities." He added because of that, he thinks they left in a different vehicle.

"We are confident this was a place that these victims were randomly brought to," Bygd said.

Bygd said two of the victims are brother and sister, and one was a boyfriend of another victim. None of them have connections to this area.

As for a motive?

"That one is a mystery," Bygd said.

He added they cannot rule out drugs, but that isn't known as a motive right now.

Bygd said, "everyone is a suspect at this point," and they are investigating all victim acquaintances.

In his 35 years in Dunn County law enforcement, he said this type of case is a first for him.
