Police investigating murder in western Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:

Police say a woman was murdered this afternoon at a home in western Sioux Falls.

The 53-year-old victim was found at 5605 W. Misty Glen Place around 3:30 this afternoon. Police were initially called to the home for a woman who sustained fatal injuries, Officer Sam Clemens said.

Witnesses saw a man leave the home and were able to get the license plate number and a description of the car.

Just before 4, the car and suspect were found at a home in the 2800 block of South Theodore Avenue.

Clemens say the suspect is in custody, but no charges have been filed at this time. Charges, however, are expected.

The victim and suspect do know each other, Clemens said.  Through the initial investigation, it appears as though this is a drug related incident. The victim's name will not be released pending notification of family.

Police say they'll have more information on this case at tomorrow's police briefing.
