ST. PAUL, Minn. - St. Paul police are investigating what they are calling an apparent homicide.
St. Paul Police tweeted Monday afternoon: "St. Paul Police investigating apparent homicide-27 year old woman found dead inside residence in 400 block of Milton Ave N this afternoon.
"The man they believe might have helpful information regarding the homicide has not been located. Investigators do not believe this is random. They are trying to speak with a man who had been in a previous relationship with the victim," a second tweet said.
St. Paul police tell KARE 11 the woman's family called police for a welfare check Saturday and the woman was not home. Police say they continued to look for her and returned to her home Monday afternoon when they found her body.
The Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office will perform an autopsy. The victim's name will be released after relatives have been notified.
There have been no arrests.
