Body of missing Hibbing man located

The body of a missing Hibbing man has been located, one month after authorities identified him as a missing person.

Hibbing Police say they learned no contact had been made with Jesse James Crabtree since July 6, identifying him as a missing person on July 22.

Officers located Crabtree’s abandoned vehicle in the woods near the Redhead Bike Trail in Chisholm, but difficult and dangerous terrain made it difficult to find Crabtree.

Police say on August 21, human remains were located on a steep cliff during a search with members of the St. Louis County Rescue Squad. The remains were taken to the Midwest Medical Examiners Office, who identified the body to be Crabtree.

No foul play is suspected.
