DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - The Ramsey County sheriff says authorities are still trying to solve the slaying of a Montana man 12 years ago.

The body of 19-year-old Russell Turcotte, of Wolf Point, Montana, was found in a rural tree grove in the eastern North Dakota county on Nov. 5, 2002. Authorities said the body had likely been there for months. Turcotte had last been seen in July 2002 at a truck stop in Grand Forks.

Sheriff Steve Nelson tells KZZY radio that authorities review the case file about twice a year. But he says to this point, they haven’t come up with anything new. He says a possible suspect was identified a few years ago but later eliminated based on interviews and evidence.
