ST. CLOUD, Minn. — St. Cloud police say a 20-year-old man apparently killed another man in their apartment last week before taking his own life.
Authorities said Wednesday the deaths of Larry David Thompson and his 19-year-old roommate, Benedict Gerard Frank, are believed to be a murder-suicide.
The Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s office says Frank was killed by a single gunshot wound and ruled this death a homicide. Authorities say Thompson also died of a single gunshot wound, and his death was a suicide.
Officers arrived at the men’s apartment last Friday and found their bodies. A gun was recovered at the scene.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension assisted in the investigation.
