The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says a person of interest in last week's Virginia homicide has been found in Duluth.

The BCA said Anthony James Isham, 42, was apprehended on Sunday night without incident.  He is being held on a warrant for first-degree burglary.

Virginia Police said Isham is a person of interest in the death of Harley Joseph Jacka, 28, who died Tuesday.  An autopsy found he died of homicidal violence.

Two other persons of interest, 39-year-old Bartholamy Jake Drift of Virginia and 38-year-old John "Ojiy" Edward Isham of Virginia, remain in custody on unrelated charges.
