Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - There is new information tonight into the killing of a Cold Spring, Minnesota police officer.

Evidence supported the arrest of a suspect, who later committed suicide. The BCA ruled today that Eric Thomes would have been arrested on murder charges.

The agency previously called Thomes a person of interest. He fled from investigators and killed himself on January 2nd.

The BCA says authorities have completed the active portion of the investigation into the November, 2012 shooting death of Officer Tom Decker, but the case will remain open in case new information emerges.
