Death at grain elevator in Horace ruled suicide

HORACE, N.D. – The cause of death for the man whose body was found near a grain elevator here on Monday has been ruled suicide.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that Vincent W. Friedman, 44, died from self-inflicted injuries.

Investigators used the results of the medical examination and physical evidence at the scene to determine the cause.

Detective Steve Gabrielson said more information about the death would be released after the family is notified.

Sheriff Paul Laney said the death was not the result of a gunshot wound.

Friedman’s vehicle was found near the Dakota Ag Cooperative Elevator, where his body was discovered by snow-removal workers on Monday.

Investigators had said they didn’t know why Friedman, of 509 29th Ave. N. in Fargo, was at the elevator.
