ST. PAUL, Minn. - Police have identified the woman who was found inside her home Monday morning as 27-year-old Megan Sheree Neely.
St. Paul police found the body after Neely's family requested a welfare check Saturday night. Police say family members became concerned when Neely did not show up for a previously planned function. St. Paul police officers went to Neely's residence with a family member that night, but they found nothing out of the ordinary. Police checked the residence again Monday morning to find Neely's body.
Authorities are investigating Neely's homicide and are seeking a person of interest, a 31-year-old man believed to have had a previous relationship with Neely.
Police have made no arrests at this time.
The Associated Press reports Neely was the mother of two daughters, ages 1 and 10.
