Claremont Man Dead after Fatal Stabbing
Claremont man died on Saturday after being stabbed by two men, reported the Star Tribune. The victim Troy R. Ulrich, 42, was found in the hallway of his apartment complex at 8:30 a.m. Saturday by residents, said Dodge County Sheriff Gary Thompson, reported the Pioneer Press.
His body suffered six stab wounds to the chest, said Thompson, quoted the Star Tribune. His body was about 150 feet from his apartment unit.
The two men suspected of stabbing Ulrich are father and son. One of the suspects, the 42-year-old father, was arrested in the apartment unit directly across from where Ulrich lived, Thompson said. His 20-year-old son was arrested in Austin, Minn., a day later.
It's unclear why Ulrich was killed and what role the father and son played in his death, Thompson said.
"I don't know a whole lot about what transpired," he said. "I know that they were out and there was some disagreement earlier in the night Friday."
The suspects are longtime Dodge County residents. They have family in Ulrich's apartment complex and visited often, Thompson said. The men were known to socialize with Ulrich, but the extent of their friendship is uncertain, the sheriff said.
Ulrich lived with his girlfriend, who told authorities that he was in and out of his apartment late Friday. Authorities believe he was killed sometime after 1 a.m. Saturday.
Claremont is a town of 620 people about 80 miles southeast of the Twin Cities.
