FARGO—The father of a teenager who died in a North Dakota State University residence hall last month has released his son's cause of death to ease any fears on campus and reassure the friends his son was visiting when he died. Tom Delaney, of Savage, Minn., posted the information on his Facebook page and spoke with The Forum about what he learned from his son's autopsy results. He said they indicate Devin Delaney, 17, died of natural causes.
FARGO—The unfathomable appears to be moving toward grim reality in the case of a pregnant woman missing for more than a week. With the Thursday discovery of a healthy newborn in a northside apartment building here, the arrests of two people suspected of kidnapping the child and no trace of the baby's mother, police are considering all possibilities. Among them, that Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind of Fargo, 22 years old and eight months pregnant, was taken against her will for the purpose of stealing her baby.
FARGO—A Fargo "pro-white" activist now says he has a specific date and place in mind for a rally to advance "pro-white" issues. Peter Tefft, 30, of Fargo, is considering the evening of Saturday, Oct. 14, for the rally he hopes to hold in the public square between the Fargo Public Library and the Civic Center downtown. He said Friday he expects a crowd of around 200 to 300 people. Tefft attended the "Unite the Right" rally that got out of hand last weekend in Charlottesville, Va.
FARGO — More than two months after his body was found under a blanket in a car outside Walmart in Dilworth, Minn., police still can't find anyone who knew 60-year-old Anthony Sabal. Not a family member, friend or even an acquaintance. It took weeks to identify the body — a task accomplished by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's office in St. Paul through fingerprints. Locating Sabal's family has proven much more difficult.
The next time you see a state trooper zipping down the road with lights and sirens on, it may not be for the reason you think. Troopers deal with traffic crashes, speeders and drunk drivers on a regular basis, but they also play another important lifesaving role—delivering blood. Those law enforcement officers in North Dakota and Minnesota perform dozens of blood relays each year between blood banks and hospitals to help patients in urgent need of transfusions.
MOORHEAD, Minn. — The National Transportation Safety Board has issued a preliminary report on the crash of a vintage plane that killed Breckenridge, Minn., farmer and pilot Mark Yaggie on July 2. Among other findings, the NTSB said the plane struck a light pole along Interstate 94 just outside Moorhead before going down. Yaggie took off from Fargo's Hector International Airport at 6 p.m., enroute to Lyons Field in Pelican Rapids, Minn. No flight plan was filed.
FARGO—The first day of training with the Fargo Fire Department's new drone proved to be challenging because of the weather. The six firefighters learning to operate it didn't get a turn at the controls on Thursday, June 22, mainly because of winds of more than 20 mph and much higher gusts. Instead, only the person leading the training took it for a short test run. That didn't curb the enthusiasm of Dan Johnson, one of the firefighters who signed on.
MOORHEAD, Minn. — A Moorhead man is accused of abusing his 2-month-old daughter, including rubbing hot sauce and cayenne pepper in her eyes and blocking her airway until she turned blue. Shawn Michael Foltz, 31, was charged Friday, June 9, in Clay County District Court with four felonies: neglect of a child, malicious punishment of a child and two counts of third-degree assault. A criminal complaint alleges Foltz also snapped his daughter with a towel, sprayed her with hot water that caused burns and threw fireworks in her face. According to the complaint:
FARGO — The Richland County Sheriff's Department says it's investigating a Catholic priest of the Fargo Diocese after reports of "inappropriate activities" with youths in his parishes. Investigator Josh Beto said there is "more than one" potential victim in the case and that he's fielded several calls from the public since the news about Father Thomas Feltman broke over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Beto said anyone who has information or concerns can call the Fargo Diocese or sheriff's office, but added, "We would also like them to contact us."
FARGO — As members of the North Dakota Air National Guard here in 2011, Matt and Micaela Brancato lost two dear friends within a span of just two months. Air Force Maj. David Brodeur was killed in a shooting at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, that April. He was Matt's roommate at the U.S. Air Force Academy. West Fargo native Eric "Dirk" Ziegler died when the F-16 he was piloting crashed during training in Nevada that June. "We went to back-to-back memorial services," Micaela Brancato said.
