Mother, 2 children found dead in Zimmerman home

Posted: Updated:

Investigators with the Sherburne County Sheriff's Office confirm they are conducting a death investigation after three people were found dead inside a home on 5th Avenue South in Zimmerman.

Ramsey County medical examiners identified the victims as 35-year-old Stephanie Shields, 7-year-old Nolan Shields, and 6-year-old Josephine Shields; however, their cause of death has not been released.

Deputies surrounded the home at 13309 5th Ave S. on Sunday and blocked access to the area to non-residents after a family member of the deceased discovered the bodies.

Sherburne County Sheriff Joel Brott said in a release that deputies arrived within minutes of the call, which came in at 10:03 a.m. on Easter Sunday.

Neighbors told FOX 9 News a family with at least two young children lived in the home where the bodies were discovered.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension was also called in to assist in the investigation.

Investigators are not currently seeking any suspects.
