Minneapolis police are investigating the death of an adult woman as suspicious, after officers found discrepancies between the scene itself and information provided in the 911 call.
The emergency call came in shortly before 8 a.m. Monday, according to the Minneapolis Police Department, with the caller reporting an overdose. Police, fire and paramedics responded to the scene, an apartment on the 800 block of 13th Avenue Southeast in the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood, and entered the residence.
Inside, they discovered a woman — believed to be in her late 20s — dead. Nobody else was in the apartment, police said.
Officers at the location noticed " evidence at the scene did not match the information that the 911 caller had reported," according to MPD, which did not provide additional details.
That prompted police to call in homicide detectives with the medical examiner's office, and a "suspicious death investigation" has been launched.
The Minneapolis Police Department provided no additional information regarding the circumstances of the woman's death. The medical examiner will determine a cause of death and release the identity of the victim in the days ahead.
The department asked anyone with information to submit an anonymous tip via CrimeStoppersMN.org.
