Over 140 arrested after armed eviction of pipeline protest site

Investigation continues into death of Pierz couple

LITTLE FALLS — The Morrison County Sheriff’s Office and Pierz Police Department investigated the deaths of 57-year old Collette Enge and 64-year old Jeff Enge, both of Pierz.  

The bodies were located in a field Saturday east of Pierz after relatives notified law enforcement they’d been unable to contact the couple.  

According to Morrison County Sheriff Michel Wetzel, both bodies were transported to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsies.  

“While we won’t have their final report for several weeks, we do not believe at this time that foul play was involved or that any risk exists to the general public,” Wetzel said in a news release.
