K-Mart Issues Statement on Man's Death

After a Northwood, ND, man was found dead in the Grand Forks K-Mart bathroom on Sunday, the company's corporate office is reviewing its closing policies.

After a Northwood, ND, man was found dead in the Grand Forks K-Mart bathroom on Sunday, the company's corporate office is reviewing its closing policies.

70-year-old Michael Camperud was found Sunday morning around 8 at the K-Mart on South Washington St.

Authorities say it's likely he was there overnight.

In a statement from K-Mart, a spokesperson said it is their policy to check store restrooms before closing.

The lights in the bathrooms operate on motion sensors and when the employee checked the bathroom that night, the lights were off.

Clerks do not check individual stalls, but the company will review that policy to make sure something like this does not happen again.
