The house where the woman was found dead Sunday.

The woman found dead at a St. Paul townhome on Sunday had been assaulted a day earlier in Brooklyn Park.

The update to the investigation by St. Paul Police Department was provided Tuesday, with Brooklyn Park PD confirming it has now taken over the homicide investigation.

The 36-year-old woman was found dead in the basement of the home in the 1500 block of Jackson Street in St. Paul's North End Sunday afternoon.

Subsequent investigation has determined that the victim "had been assaulted by her domestic partner" on Saturday, sparking a search warrant being served at a home in the 7500 block of Brunswick Avenue in Brooklyn Park.

The Brooklyn Park PD release does not mention if any arrests have been made.

If you know anyone who is affected by domestic violence, you can find more information on services available here, via the Minnesota DPS.
