COLD SPRING, Minn. (AP) - The criminal investigation into the 2012 killing of a Cold Spring police officer is being closed.

Officer Thomas Decker was shot and killed on Nov. 29, 2012 after he was called to check on someone. Ryan Larson was arrested hours later, but was never charged.

Authorities later questioned Eric Thomes as a person of interest, but Thomes committed suicide. The shotgun linked to Decker's death was found on property Thomes could access.

Stearns County Chief Deputy Sheriff Jon Lentz tells the St. Cloud Times that Thomes was the focus of the investigation, and it's time to close the case. Larson has sued Stearns County and others, alleging his rights were violated.

His attorney says closing the case will help Larson's civil claim, and is essentially an admission that Larson's innocent.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reminding anglers from being tricked by thin ice in at the end of the fishing season.

Public safety officials say that more than six people have fallen through the ice over the last week. Safety Outreach Coordinator Lisa Dugan says that a cold snap won't change the fact that ice has already started to melt.

The DNR says that most lakes are still covered with ice, but a full days worth of warm and sunny conditions could turn ice into open water.

Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson says just before 4:30 a.m. Homeowners 53-year-old Daniel Kremers and 45-year-old Angela Kremers of St. Martin called authorities about their barn being on fire. Daniel noticed noisy cattle as he was getting ready for work and saw a red glow from a barn.

The Kremers tried to put out the barn that housed several goats, chickens and miscellaneous equipment. All the chickens and goats are believed to be saved.

The St. Martin Fire Department put out the fire, but the barn is believed to be a total loss. The homeowners think the fire started from a heat lamp inside of a goat hut.
