LEWISTOWN — A “person of interest” in a weekend homicide in central Montana is still at large, police in Lewistown said.

Douglas John Foster, 47, is an avid outdoorsman with extensive knowledge of the Missouri Breaks region and may be trying to hide in unoccupied buildings along the Missouri River, officials said Sunday. He should be considered armed and dangerous. A warrant has been issued for his arrest for deliberate homicide.

Foster is suspected in the shooting death of David Byron Sessions, 52, whose body was found early Saturday after someone called 911 to report a shooting.

Foster’s vehicle was seen leaving the residence. It is a 1995 green Toyota Tacoma flatbed with Montana license plate No. 8-311982A. Anyone with information is asked to call Lewistown police or Central Montana Crimestoppers at 406-538-2746.

Residents of rural Fergus, Petroleum, Garfield, Blaine and Phillips counties “should be on heightened awareness” for Foster, police said in a statement Sunday afternoon.
