UPDATE: Dunseith man, convicted of manslaughter, found


Fargo police say Sean Schroeder has been arrested.

He was apparently hiding in dumpsters and covered in mud.
He was caught this evening.
Fargo police say he was spotted by neighbors running along the Red River around 6 tonight.
Schroeder escaped from Center Inc. – a transitional facility on Wednesday – after a judge sent him there for a psychological evaluation.
He apparently walked away.
Schroeder was serving a prison sentence for manslaughter.
He pleaded guilty to beating a man to death last year in Dunseith, North Dakota.
His escape sparked a major warning from authorities, because he was considered possibly dangerous because of his background.


The Fargo Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service are asking the public’s help in finding a man convicted of manslaughter who walked away from a Fargo rehabilitation center Wednesday.

Former Dunseith resident Sean M. Schroeder, 29, was on a court-ordered furlough from federal custody when he left Centre, Inc., in Fargo.

Schroeder pled guilty in February to voluntary manslaughter for a May 2017 incident in Dunseith where Schroeder killed another person.

The Fargo Police Department believes Schroeder, “presents a public safety risk due to his history of violence and drug use.”

Authorities are asking if anyone sees Schroeder or has any information on his whereabouts to call the Fargo PD Tip Line at (701) 241-5777, or send a text message to the Fargo PD Text-A-Tip Line at (701) 730-8888.
