Person of interest in custody after body of missing man found in Shorewood


Authorities have a person of interest in custody after the body of a missing man was found in Shorewood Wednesday, WCCO-TV reports.

The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department says officers found the body of a missing man while executing a search warrant at 5700 Wood Duck Circle. The name of deceased person has not been released and the death is being called "suspicious in nature" by officials.

The person of interest, only identified as a woman, was arrested at about 1 p.m. Wednesday, a neighbor told WCCO.

The neighbor, Dan Beitelshees, told the station that police were in the last two days, asking if they had seen the missing man, who was "supposed to be in Chicago and never made it."

Other neighbors told KSTP-TV that police presence was heavy in the are during the investigation. Crime lab vehicles were at the residence until late in the evening Wednesday.

Neighbors also tell the station that authorities were working in the back yard of the residence, where some burnt materials were located.

The residents of the home are reportedly a couple and three children.

Police Chief Bryan Litsey told reporters Wednesday that the community is not at risk, and this is the first suspicious death case in the city this year.
