A 30-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of a central Minnesota woman who was reported missing Saturday but found dead Sunday.
The suspect, who like the victim is from Little Falls, was arrested Sunday afternoon at the Little Falls Police Department. He was being held at the Morrison County Jail on probable cause of second-degree murder. Formal charges are expected later this week, police said.
The suspect had reported Jeanine L. Greyblood, 37, missing on Saturday.
Little Falls police had issued a missing person alert through the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and asked for the public’s help in locating Greyblood.
Police reported that Greyblood was last seen about 1:30 a.m. Saturday leaving a residence on the 1000 Block of Broadway West but her direction of travel wasn’t known. At that time the police department reported Greyblood was not dressed for the extreme cold.
Morrison County sheriff’s deputies located Greyblood’s body about 12:45 p.m. Sunday just south of Little Falls, deceased under suspicious circumstances, police reported.
Greyblood’s body was transported to the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Anoka County to determine the cause and manner of death.
