Man charged with murder

Robert Todd Ferguson arrested


Robert Todd Ferguson has been charged with third degree murder.

Robert Todd Ferguson, 51, of Cloquet is being formally charged with third degree murder and was arrested Thursday, September 4 in the city of Cloquet without incident.

The arrest was a result of a warrant issued on September 4 for Ferguson. Ferguson is currently in custody at the Carlton County Jail awaiting arraignment.

The charges stem from allegations that Ferguson provided a Fentanyl patch to Paul Duane Mrosla, age 25, who died the evening of January 15.

On January 15 at approximately 10:45 p.m., Carlton County 911 received a call from Nancy Mrosla at 615 3rd Street in Carlton reporting there was a 25-year-old male unconscious, possibly suffering from a drug overdose.

Carlton County sheriff's deputies, Carlton Ambulance, and Cloquet Ambulance responded to the address and administered medical care to Paul Mrosla. Attempts were unsuccessful. Mrosla was pronounced dead at the scene.

After a lengthy investigation involving multiple witnesses and medical experts, it was determined that Paul Mrosla had died from an overdose as a result of ingesting the Fentanyl. The Carlton County Sheriff's Office was assisted in the investigation by the Cloquet Police Department and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
