A rally is being planned for March 4 in Dickinson by family and friends of Bismarck native Eric Haider, whose remains were unearthed at a construction site north of Dickinson in May after went missing from the site almost three years earlier.

The event, which was mentioned on a Facebook page dedicated to Haider, is reportedly being organized to protest the decision of the Dickinson Police Department to close the investigation into his death, as well as that of Stark County State’s Attorney Tom Henning not to file criminal charges.

Their decisions followed a medical examiner’s report that failed to find anything suspicious during an autopsy of Haider’s remains.

The protest is planned to begin at the Dickinson Police Department at 11 a.m. and then move to Stark County Courthouse.

Haider’s remains were discovered last May at a worksite off 40th Street West, mainly through the work of private investigators hired by Mary Ellen Suchan, Haider's mother. Haider went missing from the location in May 2012, where he was a worker for a plumbing company at the time.
