Authorities investigate suspicious death in Bismarck


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Burleigh County sheriff's officials have identified a man found dead in Bismarck under what they say are suspicious circumstances.

The death of 68-year-old Florian Kiefer, of Bismarck, remains under investigation. Maj. Jim Hulm would not comment on how Kiefer died, but said his department is looking into a person of interest in the death.

Kiefer’s wife called authorities about 7:15 a.m. Wednesday after finding her husband, Hulm said.

Authorities say Kiefer died sometime between 11 p.m. Tuesday and 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, the Bismarck Tribune reported. Kiefer’s wife was home all night and is safe, Hulm said.

The sheriff’s department is asking anyone in the area who has security video footage or might have seen traffic that was out of the ordinary in the neighborhood to contact authorities.
