HIBBING, Minn. (WCCO/AP) — The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says three people have been arrested in the death of a man whose body was found on a snowmobile trail in Hibbing.

Deshon Israel Bonnell, 18, and Anthony Emerson Howson, 20, were taken into custody and booked into the St. Louis County Jail Tuesday evening, while a 17-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday.

Authorities were called to the Mesabi Trail Sunday afternoon where they found the body of 33-year-old Joshua LaValley, of Aurora. Officials have not said why homicide is suspected as the cause of death or the circumstances involved.

It’s the second homicide investigation in Hibbing in less than two weeks. On Christmas Day, 34-year-old Jeryel McBeth was fatally shot and another man wounded. A St. Paul man is charged with second-degree murder.
