Drugs Prevalent in Murder Case

Bookmark and Share

Samuel Blue Lint is being held in the Dickenson County Jail on drug charges, until he is extradited to South Dakota for the murder of Michael Stevens. KDLT’s Melissa Payne spoke with Lint's neighbor who saw suspicious activity next door.

Mark Loe has lived in his home for seven months, next door to Samuel Lint. During that time he says unfamiliar cars would stop by Lint's house for five or ten minutes, and then leave.

Mark Loe says, “The first thing I thought of was with all the vehicles going back and forth it possibly was, had something to do with drugs.”

Sheriff Mike Milstead says drug use and trafficking are a major part of this case. Court documents show Lint was in possession of 99 and a half grams of marijuana shortly after the murder.

Suspicious activity next door had Samuel Lint’s neighbors concerned about their safety.

Loe says, “Once the sheriff had told me what everything was connected to, it kinda scared me a little bit, with it being so close to home and everything.”

Since Lint's arrest, Loe says he has piece of mind.

Loe says, “I'm just glad that they caught him and everybody around here is a little bit safer.”

Sheriff Milstead says he cannot confirm if this is a drug deal gone bad. But court papers show Lint robbed Stevens of his drugs and money.
