A search warrant made public Tuesday in Clay County District Court says Michael Lee Dickey knows who killed Nasean T. Jordan.

The search warrant was signed Sept. 18 and used to search for information stored in a cell phone used by Dickey.

"Information may be contained in Dickey's cellular telephone that will assist in the identification of this co-conspirator," the warrant states.

The warrant was provided to Dickey's attorney, Joseph Parise, as part of a scheduled court hearing.

Dickey, 23, is currently held in the Clay County jail in lieu of a $1 million cash bond.

He is one of two men who are charged in Clay County with second-degree conspiracy to commit murder in the Aug. 29 fatal shooting of 27-year-old Jordan in an apartment at 1411 20th St. South in Moorhead

Troy D. Mayhorn, 25, is also charged in the shooting death and is now held in a Chicago-jail cell awaiting extradition to Moorhead.

"It takes time," Clay County Attorney Lisa Borgen said of Mayhorn's extradition.

Borgen said she is in the process of completing paperwork that must go to the governor's office before an extradition.

Both men, who police believe have ties to a Chicago-based gang, are not named as the shooter in the Jordan murder.

Authorities close to the investigation won't disclose if they know the name of the third suspect after searching Dickey's cell phone.

"I won't comment about the investigation," Borgen said.

As of Tuesday, Dickey and Mayhorn were the only suspects in custody, though, said Moorhead Police Department Lt. Bob Larson.

Dickey's blue Samsung cell phone is currently held as evidence by the Police Department.

Both Dickey and Mayhorn used their cell phones to promote drug deals, according to information in the warrant provided by Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Special Agent Daniel Baumann.

The warrant says:

Dickey also used the cell phone in conversations relevant to Jordan's murder.

The homicide investigation revealed an obvious criminal association between Dickey, Jordan and Mayhorn.
