September 21, 2021
The killings of four people whose bodies were found last week in a bloodied SUV in a western Wisconsin farm field occurred in St. Paul and not where the discovery was made, authorities said Monday.
The St. Paul Police Department is now the lead agency in the investigation of the deaths of Matthew Pettus, 26, and half-sister Jasmine C. Sturm, 30, both of St. Paul; Sturm's boyfriend, 35-year-old Loyace Foreman III, also of St. Paul; and 30-year-old Nitosha Flug-Presley of Stillwater, a close friend of Sturm's.
The four were found by a farmer inside an abandoned black Mercedes SUV in a cornfield on Sept. 12 just outside of the Town of Sheridan in Dunn County, roughly 60 miles east of St. Paul.
