(Newser) – An arrest has been made in a case that has shaken a small North Dakota town: On Monday, four bodies were found at RJR Maintenance and Management in Mandan, that of 52-year-old co-owner Robert Fakler and three employees, two of whom were married. On Thursday night, Mandan Police Chief Jason Ziegler announced that a vehicle spotted in surveillance video led police to arrest 44-year-old Chad Isaak, who the AP reports is being held on suspicion of four counts of felony murder. Police have been tight-lipped on the murders. Here's what is known about the case thus far:

  • As for Isaak's arrest, Ziegler said without elaboration, "Evidence discovered on (the suspect) and in the vehicle provided probable cause to place (him) under arrest for the murders." The Bismark Tribune reports Isaak is a chiropractor who in 2015 opened Isaak Chiropractic of Washburn.
  • The man lives roughly 35 miles away in Washburn, in a mobile home park managed by RJR, though Ziegler said it's unclear if that played into motive, reports ABC News. The company has been in business for two decades and handles things like rent collection and building maintenance.
