SPOKANE, Wash-- Federal investigators raided the home of a businessman in North Dakota Tuesday as part of their investigation into the Douglas Carlile murder.

Carlile was murdered in his home on the South Hill of Spokane in December.  The alleged shooter,

Timothy Suckow, appeared in court on Tuesday.

Despite Suckow’s arrest, police continued to investigate Carlile’s failed business dealings with James Henrikson.

Documents suggest Carlile owed Henrikson $1.88 million.

Before his murder, Douglas Carlile told one of his sons, “If I disappear or wake up with bullets in my back, promise me you will let everyone know that James Henrikson did it,” according to court documents.

While Henrikson’s name appeared multiple times on the court affidavit, Spokane Police would not comment on his involvement in the case.

Henrikson’s name also appeared more than 50 times on Suckow’s charging documents.

FBI members raided Henrikson’s home in Wadford, North Dakota the night of Suckow’s court appearance according to sources.

Police said they could not name Henrikson as a suspect in the case due to “legal reasons”.
