Moorhead police may be waiting two more months for autopsy results for Joel LaFromboise, a 17-year-old who was shot and killed in June after wandering into a stranger's apartment.


It's not an unusual delay for the state crime lab, and no particular reason was given for the holdup, said Lt. Tory Jacobson.

Lab results of every kind are slow to arrive, he said.

"We've had that with everything from fingerprints to this, that and the other thing," Jacobson said.
