GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- A 33-year-old man was found dead early Sunday and three men are in custody in connection with a related burglary, said Grand Forks County Sheriff Bob Rost this morning.

Because it’s still an active crime scene, he’s releasing few details, Rost said.

It happened “just west of Grand Forks,” about 1 a.m. Sunday, he said.

Deputies responded to a call and found a man dead from an apparent stabbing.

Three males later were arrested in connection with a reported burglary at the same residence, Rost said.

No other information, including where it happened or the names of the people involved, has been released, Rost said. Deputies are working with the state’s attorney’s office on search warrants and other aspects of the investigation, the sheriff said.
