Authorities have released the name of a man who was found dead over the weekend at a motel in Ballantine.
In a press release Monday morning, Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder said that the victim of a homicide that occurred Saturday morning has been identified as Carl Archer Jr., age 53.
An autopsy has been performed.
According to Linder, records indicate Archer had a Billings address in the past, but investigators believe he has been transient in recent months.
At this time, the cause of death is being withheld, as the investigation is ongoing. A suspect was arrested Saturday evening and remains in custody.
