The Fargo Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service are informing the public of an absconded manslaughter prisoner. On June 13, 2018, Sean M. Schroeder, 29 years of age, from Dunseith, ND walked away from Center, Inc., 123 15th St. N., Fargo where he was on a court-ordered furlough from federal custody. Schroeder did not have immediate access to a vehicle when he left Centre, Inc. Schroeder is described as 5 feet, 5 inches tall, weighing about 165 lbs., with brown hair, and blue eyes. We do not have a clothing description at this time.

Schroeder pled guilty in February 2018 to voluntary manslaughter for an incident, which occurred in May 2017 in Dunseith, ND where Schroeder violently caused the death of another person. The Fargo Police Department believes Schroeder does present a public safety risk due to his history of violence and drug use.

The Fargo Police Department, Metro Area Street Crimes Unit, and the U.S. Marshals Service are seeking any information, which could assist in locating and arresting Schroeder. Please do not approach Schroeder if you encounter him, but rather immediately notify law enforcement (911).

Please call the Fargo PD Tip Line at (701) 241-5777, or send a text message to the Fargo PD Text-A-Tip Line at (701) 730-8888 if you have information.
