 UPDATED at 11 a.m. Monday

Law enforcement confirmed that the body of Kirk Kwasniewski, a suspect wanted in the alleged murder of a Bismarck man, was discovered this morning not far from where his vehicle was found abandoned in Dunn County.

The man’s death was an apparent suicide.

 

A vehicle belonging to a man wanted in connection with an alleged murder that took place in Bismarck early this morning has been found in Dunn County, according to officials.

Dunn County State’s Attorney Pat Merriman could not disclose much information to the Dunn County Herald regarding the situation due to the ongoing investigation. He did, however, say that the public has “no reason to be concerned” at this point.

Dunn County Sheriff Clay Coker will issue a statement to the press this afternoon with more information, according to Merriman.

The man, who was identified as Kirk Kwasniewski, 35, by the Bismarck Tribune, was initially cornered shortly after midnight by law enforcement in Burleigh County, but managed to elude police.

Merriman confirmed that Kwasniewski’s vehicle was found in Little Missouri State Park, north of Dunn Center, early this morning, after police tracked the man’s mobile phone to the site.

Mercer, McKenzie and Dunn County Sheriff’s Departments were involved with the investigation, as well as the Killdeer Police Department and the N.D. Highway Patrol.
