VIRGINIA, Minn. — Three people wanted in connection with the death of a Virginia man on April 29 are in custody, the Virginia Police Department said Monday.

Harley Joseph Jacka, 29, was found dead in a home in Virginia last week, with officials saying an autopsy showed he died from “homicidal violence.”

Anthony James Isham was arrested Sunday evening at a Duluth home without incident, Dennis Benz, Virginia police chief, said in a statement. A warrant had been issued for Isham’s arrest in connection with the death, and he is currently being held on an outstanding warrant for burglary.

Isham was apprehended by agents from the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension with assistance from the Virginia Police Department and the Duluth Police Department

The other two persons of interest, Bartholamy Jake Drift and John “Ojiy” Edward Isham, were already in custody on unrelated charges.
