Mitchell police investigating death
The Mitchell Police Division is investigating the death of a Mitchell man.
Det. Lt. Don Everson said the division received a call at 7:37 a.m. Monday that a 33-year-old male was found dead in his home on the 200 block of West 10th Avenue. Everson said a person who knew the man found him dead.
“There’s no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy is planned for (today),” Everson said. “Whenever a young person dies, we take a closer look at it.”
He added there was no obvious reason for the man’s death, which is why an autopsy was ordered.
The body has been transported to the Minnehaha County Coroner’s Office in Sioux Falls. Everson said he should have more details today. He declined to release the man’s name.
Everson said the man’s home will be taped off until more information is obtained from his autopsy. No other information was immediately available.
