Man suspected of killing police officer is released from jail

| No Comments

The man arrested on suspicion of murdering a Cold Spring police officer last Thursday has been released from jail without charges, the Pioneer Press said.
Ryan Michael Larson, 34, had been held in the Stearns County Jail since Thursday night, when officer Tom Decker was shot and killed on the street below Larson's apartment.
Larson was released because prosecutors were unable to establish probable cause that he committed the crime, the Pioneer Press said.
The weapon used in the killing has not been found, and Larson has maintained his innocence. He told the St. Cloud Times that police had arrested the wrong man in a phone interview while he was still in jail.
On Tuesday night, more than one thousand people gathered at officer Decker's visitation service in Cold Spring, KARE 11 reported.
With no evidence to charge the lone suspect in the officer's killing, the investigation continues.
