PAYNESVILLE -- Today (Thursday) WJON News is kicking-off our annual countdown of the Top 10 local news stories of the year.
Here’s a look back at our #10 story for 2015.
A wanted fugitive with several warrants was found dead in a Paynesville home late this summer.
28-year-old Ryan Clover was running from law enforcement in Paynesville after he was wanted for several warrants for terroristic threats and failing to register as a predatory offender.
Clover was missing for more than week, before he was found in a vacant Paynesville home.
Paynesville Police Chief Paul Wegner says a property inspection representative was conducting a month check at the home when they noticed a dead body inside.
The Ramsey County Medical Examiner identified the body as Clover and said he died from asphyxia due to hanging.
His death was ruled a suicide.
Coming-up tomorrow (Friday) we’ll have the #9 local news story in our Top 10 countdown.
