Midway Lanes in Mandan is accepting gifts and donations on behalf of RJR Maintenance and Management, where four bodies were found Monday morning as victims of homicide.

Mandan Police Chief Jason Ziegler on Tuesday identified the deceased as 52-year-old Robert Fakler, 42-year-old Adam Fuehrer, 45-year-old Lois Cobb and her husband, 50-year-old William Cobb.

Fakler was RJR's owner. The others were employees. Police have not released how they died. 

Darin Helbling, manager of Midway Lanes nearby, said he's keeping a room available for RJR all this week. The public may drop off gifts and donations from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day through Friday, he said. 

"I'm hoping businesses, companies, people drop stuff off for them," Helbling said as RJR employees and family members met Tuesday at Midway. 

Helbling said he hopes RJR employees can use the space for meetings, food and gifts. He provided them with refreshments on Tuesday. 

"Everything's free-flowing for them today," Helbling said. 

Employees of RJR declined to be interviewed. 

"No one will be making any comments, of the company or the family, right now," an RJR employee said. 

RJR, a property management business just off Memorial Highway in Mandan, posted about the donation site on Facebook Tuesday morning.

"The support of our community has been an absolutely overwhelming experience. We are so thankful for all of you who lift our spirits in this time," RJR's update said.

One Mandan police car sat outside RJR early Tuesday afternoon as employees walked back from Midway Lanes.

RJR remained closed Tuesday, but in a subsequent Facebook post Tuesday, said it will be open 8 a.m. Wednesday.

"We will be spending this time discussing our process to move forward and grieve the great losses," another post said.
