Barry Bennett and his wife, Carol, died under "suspicious circumstances," the Todd County sheriff's office said. Both were 63 years old. In the course of the investigation, authorities identified the suspect as Dylan John Bennett, the couple's son. He had been living at the home in Long Prairie, a city of about 3,500 midway between Minneapolis and Fargo, ND.

Investigators say Dylan Bennett may have fled the state. He is believed to be driving a blue 2018 Hyundai Sante Fe with a Minnesota license plate of BCK-487.

"Based on information gathered during the investigation, it is determined that there is no threat to public safety at this time," Todd County Sheriff Steve Och said in a statement.

Barry Bennett played football at Concordia College, and was a New Orleans Saint from 1978-81 and a New York Jet from 1982-88 before a one-game stint with the Vikings. He was chosen in the third round of the NFL Draft (60th overall) in 1978.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the couple were identified by people who know the family.

The bodies of Bennett, a former NFL player and Long Prairie physical education teacher, and his wife, Carol, were found Wednesday when a friend went to the home for a welfare check after phone calls and texts had gone unanswered since Tuesday. The friend discovered Barry Bennett's body and called 911. Deputies discovered the second body after searching the home.

Texas A&M lineman promises upset of Clemson.
The Texas A&M Aggies will be underdogs when they head to Death Valley to take on the Clemson Tigers Saturday, but one of their players sees an upset coming. Offensive lineman Jared Hocker confidently predicted Monday that the Aggies will knock off top-ranked Clemson in their pivotal early-season battle. Jared Hocker is confident that the Aggies will defeat Clemson on Saturday. “There will be an upset.” pic.twitter.com/tqbVqYlAe6 — TexAgs (@TexAgs) September 2, 2019 It’s certainly a bold prediction. There’s some reason to believe it’s not completely silly to think, too. The Aggies are ranked 12th in the nation, and they only lost by two to Clemson last season.
