MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) - Moorhead police say a vehicle spotted near where the body of a slain North Dakota State University student was found in September is not connected to his homicide investigation.

Police earlier this week released surveillance video of the car that spent a couple minutes in a parking lot next to the recreational vehicle store in Moorhead where the body of Thomas Bearson was discovered.

Investigators say the vehicle and its owner were identified through tips from the public.

Police say 18-year-old Bearson, of Sartell, Minnesota, died as the result of homicidal violence. A medical examiner’s report was released last week, but investigators have released few details from the autopsy.

The FBI plans to develop a suspect profile based on specific details of the crime.
