The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is asking for the public's help in providing more information regarding a death of a Wheaton man last year on his farm. 

The BCA states Terry McCoy was preparing to move from his farm to transition to an assisted living facility at this time last year.

When prospective buyers showed up at his home on June 18, 2020, they saw possible signs of a struggle. McCoy's personal property was still at the house, but he was nowhere to be found.

More than two weeks later, his body was found in the Mustinka River, located northeast of Wheaton. The Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office stated that McCoy's death was a homicide. 

McCoy's daughter has raised $3,000 to offer as a reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case. He was last seen alive on June 17, 2020. 

Anyone with information about his murder is urged to contact the BCA tip line at 1-877-996-6222.
