Mandan is located near the Missouri River and has a population of about 22,000, ABC Minneapolis affiliate KSTP reported. The business, a family-owned company that services commercial and residential properties in the area, is located in a somewhat isolated location, according to the local station.

The case is being treated as a homicide investigation, police said in a statement. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is assisting.
