Hibbing police investigate slaying of business owner

HIBBING, Minn.- Police are looking for suspects after a long time business owner was murdered in his Hibbing home Monday. 

Brian Joseph Nelson was found dead in a house behind The Bottle Shop liquor store around 4:30 p.m.. Investigators simply say the 60-year-old died of homicidal violence, while a Duluth TV station is reporting that Nelson was stabbed to death. They do not believe it was a random act, and say there is no continuing danger to the public. 

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is assisting with the investigation. Anyone with information on the murder of Brian Nelson is asked to call 218-263-3601.
