Woman found dead inside Wisconsin Dells home, suspect in custody

WISCONSIN DELLS (WKOW) — A 23-year-old woman was found dead inside a Wisconsin Dells home Thursday evening, according to Wisconsin Dells Police Department.

In a press release, Chief Jody Ward said police got the call around 4:37p.m. Thursday from Montgomery County Dispatch in Pennsylvania. The call forced authorities to conduct a welfare check at a house within the city limits, according to the release.

Police did not give an exact address.

When officers arrived, the body of a 23-year-old woman was found inside and nobody else was there, according to Chief Ward.

Police searched for a person of interest and Ward said a 31-year-old suspect returned to the house and he was arrested.

Chief Ward said the incident was a domestic situation and the public was never at risk.

The names of the victim and suspect are not being released until relatives are notified of the death.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday, when we expect to get more information from police.
