Doran, Minn. (WDAY TV) - A death in a small town south of Breckenridge has now been ruled a homicide. Authorities in Wilkin County were called early Friday morning to Lori Roberts' home in Doran, Minnesota. She was found dead with a gunshot wound.
Wilkin County has remained very tight-lipped on the investigation. They called in the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for help on the case. Since Roberts' death, the family has not been shy in saying it was murder. Now they say they want more, a killer arrested.
The family of Lori Roberts says there's no doubt who killed her. Chief Deputy Rick Fiedler could not go on camera today. He says the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension left the crime scene late last night, ruling the case a homicide, but Fiedler says no arrests have been made.
"I and the rest of my family, and people who work with my mom know my mom’s friends, extended family, we all know who did it."
Roberts' family claims her ex-boyfriend killed her. They say he was there the night she was shot and then made the 911 call in the morning. Her daughter Stephanie Holding Eagle says he did it because her mom just broke up with him. She says Roberts had paid for a deposit on an apartment for him, but he hadn't moved out yet.
"Her arms were always open for everybody, she was such a loving person she was so energetic, goal oriented motivated very up beat and he was holding her down.”
Her family is now waiting for an arrest, and they say they're worried for their own safety.
"I don't know where everybody is going to go from here. I don't know what we're going to do."
The family says it's like a nightmare; most of them followed Roberts here from California years ago to be with one whose life is family, keeping everyone involved, their rock.
"When holidays come it's just going to be hard we don't know we just don't know we've never had a loss like this ever, we're just going to go one day at a time."
Police say they have more interviews to do and have not formerly questioned anyone yet. We'll keep you informed if any arrests are made.
