(S.D.)-Fall River Officials Investigating Death Of Couple Near Oelrichs
(Oelrichs)-Fall River County officials are investigating the death of two rural residents sometime over the weekend. According to Fall River County Sheriff Rich Mraz, an elderly couple was found dead at a rural residence southwest of Oelrichs around 8:30 Monday morning.
Mraz said the couple, ages 73 and 74, were found by family, who then notified law enforcement. The South Dakota Department of Criminal Investigation is assisting the Fall River County Sheriff’s office in the investigation.
Not a lot of information is available at this time, as Mraz said family members are still being notified, and the investigation into the cause of the deaths is ongoing. As of Tuesday morning, investigators were still awaiting results of the autopsies, but do not believe that there are any other parties involved in the deaths. He hopes to have a more inclusive report to release by Thursday, including the identities of the deceased.
