Suspected deadly drug dealer now wanted

Authorities say Tyler Caputo left earlier this month


Rovney also has filed a notice saying he will be requesting a longer prison sentence than is recommended by state guidelines if Caputo is found guilty of the murder and drug charges. One of the reasons for the upward departure notice, Rovney said, is that Caputo was providing drugs to other people who, in turn, sold them to the victims.

Those people are also facing third-degree murder charges. They are Trace Hafner, 17, of Blue Earth, who was dating Moses and allegedly took the drug with her, and James Inman, 30, of Mankato, who allegedly sold the drugs used by Folson.

A 15-year-old boy also was involved, but whether or not he is facing juvenile charges is not public information.
