Man sought in death of woman found dead

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. – After an Alexandria woman was found dead in her home Thursday, authorities reported Friday that the man they were looking for was found dead in Osakis.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, David Dewain Everett, 51, was found dead in a car located inside a storage unit on the west side of Osakis – a city about 10 miles east of Alexandria.

Authorities said they received a tip from the public that led them to the storage unit just before noon today.

Everett’s cause of death remains under investigation.

Thursday afternoon, 38-year-old Sharon Christina Love was found dead in her home located at 1005 Eckert Street in Alexandria.

The sheriff’s office reported that Love’s landlord found her body, and it appeared she had died of unnatural or suspicious causes.

Friday morning, authorities had asked for the public’s help in locating Everett. They said he was last seen leaving Love’s residence Wednesday about 6 p.m. in her vehicle – a silver 2004 Pontiac Grand Am.

Authorities say they are continuing their investigation.
