Manhunt underway for federal parolee, suspect in wife’s homicide

A manhunt is underway in northern Minnesota.

The U.S. Marshal’s Office and the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office are looking for 44-year-old Erik Reinbold of Oklee as the primary suspect in the murder of his wife, Lissette Reinbold.

Reinbold is also in violation of his federal parole and is considered armed and dangerous.

Reinbold is 5’7″, 200-pound white man with brown hair and blue eyes. Lissette was killed on Friday.

Anyone with information on Reinbold’s whereabouts can contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-926-8332 or usmarshals.gov/tips, to possibly qualify for a reward of up to $10,000.

Reinbold served prison time for possessing pipe bombs.
