MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A pregnant woman’s death in Eagan Tuesday afternoon is being investigated as a homicide, and police have a man in custody.
Police say they responded to a call of an unresponsive female at around 2:53 p.m. on Alden Pond Lane. First responders attempted life-saving measures, but were unsuccessful. Investigators say the 25-year-old was 32 weeks pregnant.
Eagan police say they determined the victim was “subjected to trauma” and began investigating her death as a homicide. Around 6 p.m., they arrested 23-year-old Vern Mouelle, of Brooklyn Park, in Mounds View.
Police say Mouelle is a person of interest and he has not charged connection with the crime.
