WATFORD CITY, N.D. — Authorities believe the death of a Williston woman whose body has been found in McKenzie County is tied to a deceased man connected to a Williston shooting last week.

The sheriff’s office says the body of 28-year-old Lindsay White was found in a rural area Thursday night. Her death is being treated as a homicide.

Authorities list the primary suspect as Jonah Hendricks. He was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound on July 18. He was considered a person of interest in a shooting in Williston that day that injured two other people. Their wounds were not considered life-threatening.
