Authorities arrest suspect in Onamia death
A 30-year-old man was arrested late Tuesday night, April 28, for first-degree murder with intent in connection with the death of a man whose body was found inside a home in Onamia.
The man is in the Mille Lacs County Jail in Milaca.
Mille Lacs County Sheriff Don Lorge Wednesday confirmed the sheriff’s office apprehended the suspect, identified as Harlan Davis Swanson. In an email, Lorge stated Swanson was arrested in a building east of where the homicide had taken place. Swanson was expected to appear for his arraignment Thursday in Mille Lacs County District Court.
The Dispatch’s policy is to not identify suspects until they are charged, unless it is a serious felony, such as murder.
Lorge said the case is under investigation and did not release any further details of the death investigation. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is assisting the sheriff’s office in the investigation.
