A man wanted for questioning in an Austin murder dies on a Waseca County highway.
 
The Waseca County Sheriff's office tells News 12 that a car rolled over south of Waseca while officers were pursuing the car.

The suspect is only being identified as a 46 year old man from Oakdale, Minnesota.  The State Department of Public Safety says the Austin Police Department along with deputies from the Mower County, Freeborn County, and Waseca County Sheriff's office assisted with the case.
