Two individuals are facing charges in relation to the dead body that was found by farmers in a field in Willmar on Halloween. 35-year-old Caleb Blue of Kerkhoven was charged with 2nd Degree Murder in the death of 24-year-old David Medellin and 51-year-old Lori Gafkjen of Brooten was charged with Aiding an Offender. Blue told authorities that he was driving Medellin from Jackpot Junction Casino to Willmar when he told Medellin to get out of the car and Blue stabbed him. Blue then chased Medellin into the field and called Gafkjen to come pick him up when Medellin died. Gafkjen and Blue reportedly met when Blue was previously incarcerated and Gafkjen worked as a corrections officer. Blue gave no motive other than saying that it “needed to be done.”
