Officials identify woman found dead in her apartment after 'tragic weekend in St. Paul'

Starting Sunday morning, St. Paul police announced four homicide investigations in less than two days.

ST PAUL, Minn. — After a woman was found dead in her apartment, St. Paul police have begun a fourth homicide investigation in less than 48 hours. 

Officials identified the woman Wednesday as 55-year-old Angela Chapin Huntington of St. Paul. Information about the cause of her death has not yet been released. 

St. Paul Police Department spokesperson Steve Linders said Huntington's family last saw her alive Sunday afternoon. After she missed a Monday morning appointment, her family went into her condo to check on her and found her dead. 

Linders said Huntington's apartment is on the 300 block of Ramsey Street, which sits on the edge of the Summit Hill neighborhood near downtown. Police were called to the area at about 11 a.m. They secured the scene and called for a team from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office. 

"They took a closer look at the deceased, and that’s when they looked at our officers and they told them that her death appears suspicious," Linders said. 

Linders said investigators are talking to neighbors and looking for security camera footage. 

Huntington's death follows a "tragic weekend in St. Paul," Linders said. It follows three unrelated fatal shootings in the city on Sunday. 

An 18-year-old man was killed in one shooting, which police investigated first as a possible road rage incident, then as part of a "dispute" from earlier Sunday. A 37-year-old man was later arrested in connection to his death.

Also Sunday, police said a shooting and robbery took the life of a 20-year-old man who witnesses said was in the city to go scootering with his friends. 

A man in his 30s was killed in another Sunday shooting. Police say he arrived at a hospital after being shot in a parking ramp, and died shortly after.
