    His fiance posted earlier and it's so heart wrenching.
    She also said " I want to thank everyone who has been helping since he went missing, all the shares, all the suggestions, and the prayers and support. Love you all so much for that"
    Rest in Peace

    Poor little children with their Dad gone. I hope the police find what happened and who did this.

    Suicide by stabbing? How often does that occur, I wonder?

    I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this... How does one repeatedly stab themselves in the chest??? I must be missing something.

    I wonder how they could tell it was a suicide? He has been missing quite a while. They came to this determination of suicide rather quickly...IMO.
    His 3rd baby was born the day his body was found. The baby was named after him. Very sad ending!

    Roseville police have confirmed that the body of a man found Friday in a vacant lot on Friday is that of a missing Stillwater man.

    The body of Ralph Latrez Bell, 24, was found on the northeast corner of Dale Street and Roselawn Avenue at around 12:15 p.m. Friday, and the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office's preliminary autopsy results determine that Bell died by suicide.

    The Star Tribune and KSTP, citing conversations with Bell's family, reported Sunday that Bell had been stabbed multiple times. Authorities have yet to confirm he was stabbed, nor any details of his death beyond the preliminary autopsy result. ...

    The discovery of Bell's body came the same day his fiancee delivered the couple's third child, a son who was named after him, according to the family's Facebook posts.

    I assume if mother doesnt believe it then there wasnt a note.

    Maybe there was signs of hesitation attempts (like how suicides with slit wrist have slight cuts too because of hesitation), angle of entry and finger prints?

    Hate to wonder this, but could he have life insurance that would pay if he was murdered? Did he feel overwhelmed with 2 kids, 1 on the way at age 24 and think if it was ruled murder then they can get paid? I dont want to think this as anyhting bad meant towards him but just thinking of why stabbing.

    RIP Ralph

    I am guessing the knife was found with him, with only his prints? And that the angle of the wounds matched self-infliction? Heartbreaking, and very unusual, in any event...

    RIP Ralph :(
    Pretty unusual to rule it a suicide, although I guess anything is possible. Especially since the ME likely has evidence that we do not know about.
    I will be following this case ... Very sad, no matter what. May his children, SO and family find peace in this difficult time.

    It would be interesting to know where the stab wounds were.

    So they'd know where to start looking for him when he didn't come back.

    Nope, but a running car would let someone know that something was wrong and perhaps begin the search for him.
