The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) says the Monday night death of a Pella woman will be investigated as a homicide.
At 8:21 PM on Monday, officers from the Pella Police Department responded to a domestic disturbance on the 100 block of Glenwood Street. Authorities say the officers found an unresponsive female at the scene and after life-saving measures were unsuccessfully attempted, she was pronounced dead at the scene. The identity of the deceased has not been released pending notification of family.
No arrests have been made but law enforcement believes this is an isolated incident and the public is not in danger.
The body will be transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny for an autopsy.
