OSBI Investigates Death of Mooreland Man

The Ellis County Sheriff's Office was notified early this morning of the death of an 18-year-old Mooreland man. Kolby Bowers was transported by private vehicle just after midnight from a party a few miles north of Fargo to a hospital in Woodward. There, doctors pronounced him dead.

OSBI agents were called out at 2 o'clock this morning to investigate the death. Agents and criminalists have spent the day documenting the scene of the death where the party took place and interviewing dozens of party goers about what happened to Bowers.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy to determine Bowers' cause and manner of death. Currently, agents are investigating the death as suspicious.
