BEMIDJI– Three months after human remains were discovered in a fire pit, the Beltrami County Attorney’s Office hasn’t filed any charges.
Prosecutors say there’s no reason to rush that filing because the primary suspect is already behind bars.
Forty-four-year-old Darren Stebe of Bemidji was taken into Department of Corrections custody three months ago for his connection to a missing person case.
The remains found in that fire pit on Highway 89 have been identified as 39-year-old Adam Thorpe of Maple Grove and 41-year-old Jason McDonough of rural Superior, Wisconsin.
