Police probe possible homicide after elderly woman is found dead in Winona


Police in Winona are investigating a possible homicide after a 75-year-old woman was found dead in her home.

Police were called to a house on the 1500 block of West King Street at 3.30 p.m. to find the woman dead in the living room of the property, as well as an 84-year-old man who had a severe head injury, WKBT reports.

The man was taken to the Community Memorial Hospital and was later transferred to Gundersen Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

He remains there in a critical condition.

According to the Winona Daily News, the incident is being investigated as a possible homicide, and police have said there is no danger to the public.

Neighbors told KTTC that the elderly pair live in the house together, and the man was seen mowing his lawn about an hour before officers turned up at the scene.

The identities of the pair have not been released. More details are expected to be revealed over the weekend.
