FARIBAULT, Minn. - Convicted murderer Delbert Huber, a man whose name has resurfaced in the investigation into the abduction of Jabob Wetterling, is dead just days after conducting a series of television interviews involving the high-profile crime.
Huber's death was confirmed by a spokesperson for the Department of Corrections, who said the 83-year-old Huber died Wednesday night. Officials say no foul play is suspected. Huber was serving a sentence at the state facility in Faribault for the 2011 murder of St. Michael-Albertville teacher Tim Larson.
Huber talked with KARE 11's Trisha Volpe inside the prison Tuesday, to deny any involvement in the Wetterling case. He said he fatally shot Larson in part because he said the teacher accused him and his son of being involved in Wetterling's disappearance.
Medical examiners are conducting an autopsy, but again officials say there is nothing to suggest the death is suspicious.
