MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The St. Paul Police Department says it is investigating the death of a woman over the weekend, which is the city’s seventh homicide of the year.
The victim was found dead Sunday afternoon at a townhome on the 1500 block of Jackson Street. At an afternoon press conference Monday, police said medics were already at the townhome responding to an overdose. Police found the woman in the basement of the townhome, and said she “appeared to have been assaulted.”
The Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the woman’s death a homicide on Monday. Authorities interviewed multiple people who were at the scene, but no one is in custody yet. Police believe this was not a “random act.” Her identity will be release at a later date.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 651-266-5650.
