Police have arrested a suspect in a North Dakota quadruple homicide that occurred on Monday.

Mandan Police Chief Jason Ziegler said at a press conference late Thursday that Chad Isaak is being held on four counts of felony murder in the killings at RJR Maintenance & Management.

Chief Jason Ziegler said Thursday evening that Mr. Isaak lived in a trailer park run by RJR Management and Maintenance but did not elaborate on whether the motive for the killings grew out of that fact.

The victims, who Chief Ziegler said were shot or stabbed, were RJR owner Robert Faker, and employees Adam Fuehrer, Lois Cobb and William Cobb.

“I don’t know how it happened,” Briann Miller, the Cobbs’ daughter, told the Associated Press. “I’m left in the dark still. None of this makes any sense. All I know is my parents are gone.”

According to McLean County Sheriff JR Kerzmann, the suspect was arrested Thursday afternoon during a traffic stop in Washburn, North Dakota.

The suspect was arrested while driving a white pickup truck. News reports earlier this week said surveillance footage showed a similar truck pull in to RJR the morning of the killings.

According to Heavy.com, Mr. Isaak is a 44-year-old licensed chiropractor with offices listed in Washburn, North Dakota. He has no non-traffic criminal record.

Dale Ronholdt, Mr. Isaak’s next-door neighbor, told local TV station KFYR that he would sometimes take care of Mr. Isaak’s dog and never heard the chriropractor complain about RJR.
