Sleeping in culverts and eating crab apples, David J. Pederson was apparently living off whatever he could find in rural western North Dakota before he was arrested Thursday night, August 31st, in the killing of his Apple Valley girlfriend, a sheriff said.
Pederson has been charged with second-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of his girlfriend, Scot Marie Hermanson, 32, at their apartment on Aug. 13. Authorities nationwide were alerted about his disappearance.
Looking tattered and worn, he was caught by deputies from Stark and Morton counties between Richardton and Hebron. People had reported a suspicious person along Interstate Hwy. 94 near the county line.
