MENOMONIE, Wis. (WSAW) - The Dunn County Sheriff’s Office has identified four people found dead in an SUV on Sunday. Authorities said the victims are 35-year-old Loyace Foreman III, 26-year-old Matthew Isiah Pettus, and 30-year-old Jasmine Christine Sturm, all of St. Paul, Minn., and 30-year-old Nitosha Lee Flug-Presley of Stillwater, Minn.

A preliminary autopsy report said that all four people died from gunshot wounds.

“Our hearts go out to the family and friends of these victims,” said Dunn County Sheriff Kevin Bygd. “I wish we could release more details of our investigation, but we have to balance the public’s desire to know the details with running the risk of harming our investigation and losing evidence for building a good homicide case.”

A press conference is scheduled for 4 p.m. in Menomonie.

Investigators said an SUV with four bodies was found around 2 p.m. on Sunday in the town of Sheridan in northern Dunn County.

The Dunn County Sheriff’s Office said that a second dark-colored SUV may have been involved. If you have information about a black SUV with Minnesota plates in northern Dunn County on Sunday afternoon or any other information related to the case, you’re asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 715-232-1348.
