Man Reportedly on Amphetamines Arrested After Wife Found Dead in Home

A Minnesota man was arrested after his wife was found dead in his home.

Duane Johnson, 58, of Searles, called 911 on Thursday morning to report that his wife, Debra, was dead. When officers arrived at the home, Johnson was allegedly standing there naked. The man then reportedly “ran upstairs and began bathing in a soap and bleach mixture.” Johnson reportedly had been using amphetamines in the days leading to his arrest at the home. Johnson’s wife had several health problems and wasn’t being properly taken care of, police said. The criminal complaint claims Johnson was feeding his wife snow before her death to keep her hydrated. He was taken into custody on charges of criminal neglect and receiving stolen property. His bail was set at $250,000.
