Authorities say an autopsy is scheduled on a body found in Bismarck....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say an autopsy is scheduled on a body found in Bismarck.  Police Sgt. Mark Buschena tells the Bismarck Tribune that authorities hope to learn the identity of the man found dead Thursday afternoon in the northwest part of town.
 
     Police have released few details on the case.  Authorities say there was no sign of trauma to the body and no indication as to how the man died. There also was no identification on the body.  The case remains under investigation.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A murder suspect tied to a violent drug gang from Texas has been arrested in North Dakota.  A federal indictment from the western district of Texas charges Anselmo Flores with murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, and racketeering.
 
     Authorities say Flores is a member of the Texas Mexican Mafia. Court documents accuse him of stabbing Angel Cantu to death in January 2011, in Eagle Pass, Texas, as revenge for Cantu's cooperation with law enforcement.  Federal authorities declined to comment on Flores' arrest or why he was in North Dakota.
 
     Flores was arrested this morning in the Bismarck-Mandan area. He appeared in federal court and was ordered to be transported to Texas.  The Texas Mexican Mafia was formed in the early 1980s by inmates of the Texas state prison system.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drivers in the Dakotas this Memorial Day are paying much less for gas than they were at the same time last year.  AAA reports that the average price of a gallon of gas in North Dakota is down 67 cents from May 2013, and in South Dakota the average is down 43 cents over the year.
 
     The travel association says the reason is that Midwestern refinery issues last year caused sharp regional price spikes prior to Memorial Day. Fargo, Bismarck and Grand Forks set records in May last year when the price of gas soared well above $4 per gallon. The state average also hit a record, at $4.23 a gallon.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Supporters of changing North Dakota's pharmacy ownership law are hoping to bring the matter to voters.  Secretary of State Al Jaeger tells The Bismarck Tribune that he received a draft petition on Thursday and is reviewing it. If it's approved, supporters would need to gather and submit at least 13,452 valid signatures to get a proposed measure on the ballot.
 
     It would change a requirement in North Dakota law that says majority ownership in pharmacies in the state must be held by a registered pharmacist. That could open the door for big-box retailers such as Wal-Mart to operate pharmacies in the state.
 
     A similar petition drive in 2010 failed. It followed the 2009 Legislature's defeat of a bill that would have repealed the pharmacy ownership requirement.

     DETROIT (AP) - Federal food safety officials say ground beef recalled by a Detroit business may have been sent to stores in 10 states.  According to an announcement Thursday, the U.S. agriculture department's Food Safety and Inspection Service says it has reason to believe recalled beef was sent to retail outlets in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
 
     Wolverine Packing Co. announced Monday it was recalling 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli.  FSIS had said 11 people were sickened. Messages seeking an updated figure were left Friday.
 
     Consumers can see a list of recalled products and potentially affected stores on the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website.
