UPDATE: Person in surveillance video now a suspect in Sioux Falls homicide

Posted: Updated:

Update: Sioux Falls police say the person of interest in this weekend's homicide is now a suspect.

Surveillance video taken from a business near the home of Kari Kirkegaard shows the person police are looking for in this case.

Kirkegaard was found dead in her home Sunday, and autopsy results confirmed her death was a homicide.

There are disturbing new details in connection with that surveillance video.    

Police believe the person seen in the video is directly involved or responsible for the death of Kari Kirkegaard.

Police released this surveillance video yesterday.

In the video, you can see a person walking back and forth, carrying an object. Many viewers have commented on the distinct way in which this person walks. But police are also interested in how this person may have come in and out of the neighborhood.

Sioux Falls Police captain Greg VandeKamp said "we do know that this individual did come into the area on a bicycle, at some point, this individual was seen leaving in Kari's vehicle, and that vehicle did return later that morning."

"After the vehicle was brought back into the area, on Saturday morning, this individual was seen leaving on the same bicycle that he came into the area on, and that's the last we've seen of him or that bicycle," VandeKamp said.

Here's a description of Kari's car.

It's a dark blue, 1998 Ford Explorer, 4-door SUV.

It has a number "15" decal on the lower left corner of the rear window.

If anyone saw a car that look liked Kari's during the early morning hours of Saturday, March 15th, please call police and tell them anything you remember.

Police are asking for anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 605-367-7007.

Original story: Police believe the person in the surveillance video released yesterday is directly involved in Kari Ann Kirkegaard's death.

Watch the video in the player above.

Capt. Greg VandeKamp with the Sioux Falls police says at some point on Saturday, the person left with Kirkegaard's car.

Police have that car now, but are looking for anyone who saw it Saturday night.

It's a dark blue, four-door 1998 Ford Explorer. It has a number 15 decal in the lower left rear window.

Police are still working to identify the person in the surveillance video. This person was also seen in surveillance video riding a bike -- police are searching for that as well.

If you have any information on Kari Ann Kirkegaard or the person of interest in this case, please call the Sioux Falls Police Department.
