Possible Human Remains Located in Boundary Waters Canoe Area

Possible Human Remains Located in Boundary Waters Canoe Area

On October 22, 2018, St. Louis County Sheriff's Deputies received a call to check on a vehicle that was parked at the Sioux Hustler Trail and appeared suspicious.  Deputies learned that  U.S. Forestry Service Officers and Minnesota DNR Conservation Officers were aware of the vehicle and had determined that Jordan Grider, 29, from Moriarty, New Mexico had decided to spend the winter camped in the forest.  Jordan Grider had alerted family members of his general whereabouts.  U.S. Forestry Service Officers and DNR Conservation Officers attempted to locate Jordan Grider's campsite but were unsuccessful.  

On April 5, 2019, U.S. Forestry Service Officers located a campsite approximately 1.5 miles from the entrance to the trail.  A large amount of blood was located inside of the tent.  St. Louis County Sheriff's Investigators along with the St. Louis County Rescue squad personnel responded to the area.  Jordan Grider was not located, but evidence obtained from the campsite confirmed that the site was Grider's.  Snow was still extremely deep in the area making searching difficult.  The search was called off until snow melted.

On April 25, 2019, at approximately 10:00 a.m., the search resumed.  Possible human remains were located, scattered across a large area in the vicinity of Grider's campsite.  Those remains have been sent to the Medical Examiner's Office to confirm if they are human remains and identify those remains.  Foul play is not suspected and this case is still under investigation.  Family members have been notified of the possibility of the remains belonging to Jordan Grider although positive identification will take some time.

Mining activity in St. Louis County showed a slight increase in both total production and number of people directly employed in 2018. But perhaps even more notable - it was the safest year ever for employees in terms of injuries to workers.
