An investigation has been launched in Minnesota after three people were found dead last night at the Whitebirch Estates resort in Breezy Point, authorities say.
The Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office said it discovered the three individuals after responding around 8:45 p.m. local time on Tuesday, according to FOX9.
