Autopsy still pending in Moorhead shooting

Email News Alerts

When 17-year-old Joel LaFromboise was shot dead in a stranger's apartment in June, Moorhead Police Chief David Ebinger said an autopsy would take two to four weeks.


Nearly five months later, Ebinger's department still hasn't received full results from the state crime laboratory in Bemidji, a delay that's frustrated him.

"This is driving us nuts, but we're outstate," Ebinger said. "It's a matter of us getting in line. There's not a whole lot of leverage we've got there."
