Ex-NFL lineman Bennett, wife found dead in Minnesota

UPDATE Two Found Dead Near Long Prairie

After a call for a welfare check Wednesday afternoon, deputies found 63-year-old Barry Bennett and 66-year-old Carol Bennett dead at their home on Ginsend Road in Long Prairie.

Todd County Sheriff Steve Och says they are looking for the suspect, 22-year-old Dylan Bennett, who authorities say lived at the home where the bodies were found.

Investigators are searching for Dylan John Bennett, 22, in connection with their deaths. He was a retired teacher and coach at the Long Prairie School.

He is believed to be driving a blue 2018 Hyundai Sante Fe with a Minnesota license plate of BCK-487. Investigators suspect Dylan Bennett may have left Minnesota, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.

Och said in a statement that there is no immediate threat to public safety.


After graduating from Concordia College in Minnesota, Barry Bennett played 11 seasons in the National Football League, including six seasons with the Jets from 1982 to 1987. He started his career with the New Orleans Saints, and then played for the New York Jets.

Sheriff Todd Och says his office received a call about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday from someone reporting a death at a residence in rural Long Prairie, about two hours northwest of Minneapolis.

"It hit hard this morning". It's impossible to comprehend that this could happen.

Todd County Sheriff Todd Och said that a 22-year-old man is being sought in connection with the case.
