SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Investigators in South Dakota and Iowa are working two crime scenes as they investigate a death in Lyon County, Iowa and an arson in Sioux Falls.
The investigation started Tuesday night when someone found a Chevy pick-up truck in rural Lyon County just east of Lake Alvin.
The body of a Sioux Falls man was near the truck, and Iowa investigators called in South Dakota officials about the discovery Wednesday. Sioux Falls investigators have now linked that discovery to an arson investigation in Sioux Falls from Monday.
"At this point what you have is companion investigations being worked. You have a crime scene in Iowa that's being investigated by Iowa authorities. You have a crime scene in South Dakota that's being investigated by South Dakota authorities," Sioux Falls Police Captain Greg VandeKamp said.
The arson investigation is happening at 900 East Hermosa Drive in Sioux Falls. Fire officials say there was no one in the house at the time of the fire.
Sioux Falls Police hope to have more information on the connection of the two investigations Thursday.
