An Arizona man was convicted of murdering four Minnesotans and abandoning their bodies in an SUV in Wisconsin near Sheridan Township. Antoine Suggs, 38, was found guilty of the murder of three Saint Paul residents and one Stillwater resident last Friday.
Suggs was charged with four counts of second-degree murder of Jasmine Strum, Loyace Foreman the Third, and Matthew Pettus of Saint Paul, as well as Nitosha Flug-Presley of Stillwater in September 2021. Suggs' father, Darren Osborne, 57, was sentenced to five years last December for helping his son hide the victim's bodies. According to a police report on September 12th, 2021, a farmer found an abandoned Mercedes-Benz with four deceased occupants inside on his cornfield near Sheridan Township, Wisconsin.
The four victims all died from gunshot wounds to the head. Police found six shell casings in the interior of the vehicle. They also found Suggs’ Arizona driver’s license coated in blood in the Mercedes and a receipt for the White Squirrel Bar in Saint Paul, Minnesota where Foreman had made an earlier purchase.
An employee at the White Squirrel Bar told investigators that around 1 a.m. on September 12th, Suggs walked into the bar with Flug-Presley. According to the employee, Suggs argued with her and then said something about having six children in Minnesota and “that this always happens to him.”
Surveillance footage at the bar showed that Suggs returned to the bar around 3 a.m. and started a conversation with Foreman. Phone data showed that around this time, Foreman listed Suggs in his contacts.
However, between 10 and 11 that morning, Suggs’ and Osborne's phones both left a series of voicemails to each other. The Minnesota Department of Transportation surveillance showed the Mercedes at the Minnesota/Wisconsin state border at 10:30 that morning.
Suggs's father was arrested later that day and told officers that his son told him that he snapped and killed four people. Osborne drove Suggs back to Minnesota after the two left the SUV in a Wisconsin cornfield.
Suggs turned himself in on September 17th to Arizona authorities. Suggs testified that he shot the four in self-defense. Suggs' sentencing is on May 15th, where he can face a potential 40 years for each murder.
