The body-count in North Dakota continues to rise.

Today, Rolette County Sheriff Gerald Medrud announced Colt Eugene Allery, a deputy sheriff, was fatally shot and two other deputies are on paid administrative leave after a vehicle chase turned deadly Wednesday.

Yesterday, Write Into Action contacted the Grand Forks County States Attorney's Office requesting police video evidence from the David James Elliott police shooting case.

Attorney [Wamstad],

I am requesting all of the police body-cam and dash-cam related to the 18-2015-CR-00632 (State of North Dakota vs. David James Elliott).

I am contacting your office because the records are digital data and was referred to you by the Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office.

Wednesday's police shooting also comes in the direct wake of Write Into Action’s expositive report that former Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild was allegedly involved in the pursuit of David James Elliott in 2015.

Elliott was deadly afraid of Wild and thought he was going to be harmed. However, Wild was retired at the time of the Elliott pursuit and would have no business being involved in a midnight pursuit, which ended in Elliott being shot.

BCI investigators found “thousands of pills” in Elliott’s truck. David Elliott’s wife, Jennifer Elliott, told BCI investigators the pills were all coming from Altru Hospital doctors.

Write Into Action has obtained dash-cam video from a Grand Forks County Sheriff’s vehicle that shows the shooting of David Elliott did not happen the way it was reported.

The shooting of David Elliott appears to have been a planned hit being carried out by rookie UND police officer Jerad Braaten.

Grand Forks County States Attorney David Jones, without a doubt, completely lied to the public about the David Elliott shooting when he deemed it justified.


Write Into Action obtained video of police-cam evidence regarding the death of Caitlin Jenna Erickson, who died at the same time the David Elliott was occurring. Erickson’s next door neighbor, Desiree Gomez, heard Erickson and Mario Parsons (the man she was with) shouting and arguing for about a half an hour amidst banging sounds in the bathroom.

Parson told police everything was fine when he left and when he returned Erickson was dead. Write Into Action believes the GFPD has engaged in a deliberate cover-up of Erickson’s death.


Write Into Action interviewed the only witness to the shooting scene of Clifford Edward Monteith III, who was shot by Pembina County Deputy Brad Bowman. Sara Letexier said she saw pulled up on the scene and saw Monteith lying on the highway although he was supposedly miles away at that point. She said she then heard another gunshot.
