Body Found

Meade County's sheriff says a woman found dead north of Rapid City was likely the victim of foul play. Ron Merwin says he's treating it like a murder and doesn't have a lot of information to go on. The body was discovered about six miles north of the Rushmore Mall on Rapid City's north side. Merwin says his office was contacted yesterday morning after a passerby found the body. He described her death as "fairly recent." The woman was about 18 to 25 years old. Merwin says she does not fit the description of any person reporting missed in South Dakota.
