Unsolved cases remain in FM area

Posted: Updated:

In general, the Fargo-Moorhead police departments have a reputation of solving crimes rather quickly, especially more violent ones.
But not everyone is cleared.
From a murder to an armed robbery gone wrong, some cases from this past year have detectives still searching for suspects.

On September 23, 2012, police say this man entered the SunMart on University Drive in North Fargo armed.
He attempted to rob the place and two employees tried to stop him.
The scuffle left one employee in the hospital with a gun shot wound while the suspect got away.

"After the incident, we followed a number of leads from people who witnessed or lived around the area," says Lt. Joel Vettel with the Fargo Police Department.

But now it's been a year, both employees no longer work at the store,and no arrest has been made.

"We have had a dry spell over the past couple of months so we have marked the case inactive but it doesn't mean its over," says Lt. Joel Vettel.

While Fargo police still look for answers at the year-long unsolved crime at SunMart here in Moorhead, it's been three months since a man was murdered at this home behind me and police are still searching for clues.

"We are waiting on any evidence that will put us in the right direction," says Lt. Tory Jacobson with the Moorhead Police Department.

87 year old Henry Volochenko was brutally murdered at his Moorhead home on June 20th.

"This is an open homicide investigation and we continue to keep resources out," says Lt. Jacobson.

Police hope somebody will come forward with information that may lead to an arrest and neighbors like Veronica Wyland who works across the street agree. They say they'd like to see some closure to the unsolved case of Volochenko.

"I think we absolutely should see some resolution to these cases," says Wyland.

Anyone with any information on either cases is asked to call your local police department.
