Two suspects are in custody in connection to the death of a man in Golden Valley County earlier this week.

A welfare check at a rural residence in the sparsely populated county spurred a multi-agency search that included the Montana Division of Investigation, according to a statement released Thursday from Golden Valley County Sheriff Robert B. Pallas.

“Currently there are no outstanding suspects and there is no risk to the public as a result of this incident,” said Pallas, who also serves as the county coroner. 

On May 15, GVCSO deputies found the body of a 67-year-old man at a rural home while responding to a welfare check. The man had suffered severe head trauma. Along with Montana DCI, the Wheatland County Sheriff’s Office also assisted in the ensuing investigation which resulted in two people arrested: a 37-year-old man and 21-year-old woman.
