North Dakota police officer says argument between Robert, Richard and Douglas Bracken resulted in murder and suicide

A “quarrel between brothers” led to 59-year-old Robert Bracken allegedly killing his own son, brother and another man before pointing the gun at himself in a North Dakota wheat field on Aug. 29, Andrew said Towner County Sheriff Hillier on Friday .

Robert Bracken worked the northeastern state’s crops with his brother, 64-year-old Richard Bracken, and son, 34-year-old Justin Bracken. The field belonged to 56-year-old Douglas Dulmage, who was also killed.

The argument that led to the shooting “has been escalating for a week or more,” the sheriff said.

Evidence at the scene indicated that Robert Bracken shot the three men with a .357 caliber revolver before taking his own life. He was in possession of the gun and, according to the sheriff, had a self-inflicted fatal gunshot wound.

Dulmage was a member of the North Dakota Farm Bureau and served as President of the Benson County Farm Bureau

“It’s hard to understand why something like this would happen in a rural farming community,” Daryl Lies, president of the North Dakota Farm Bureau, said in a statement.

“When evil emerges it can be devastating, but we must remember that there is more good than evil in our world. Doug’s dedication to farming and love for his family will be remembered forever.”

The Brackens were from Leeds, which is about 20 miles south-west of the scene of the triple suicide murder in Cando.
