The Mystery at Four Mile Corner

Email News Alerts

In 1973 a rural Park Rapids teen was found dead on Highway 71 near Four Mile Corner.

The supposed hit-and-run accident was never solved.


Accusations of cover-ups and dirty dealings by the cops followed.

Some believe Sidney Eugene Berthelot Jr., 19, was murdered, especially his sister.

Others say he was the victim of an accident at a party and was dumped on the highway to cover it up.

No one is really sure.
