MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A murder investigation opened in Missoula, Montana, after a person was discovered deceased early Monday morning.
Officer Eddie McLean of the Missoula Police Department reports that a guy phoned 9-1-1 at 1:15 a.m. on Monday to claim that his girlfriend had stabbed him in the chest. McLean says there was no evidence of a crime.
After responding to the 1200 block of South First Street West, police had to break open the door since the individual did not answer it when they knocked.
A fatal stabbing occurred in Missoula.
Officers then discovered a female — who McLean claims had been stabbed multiple times — in the living room area of the house. The guy was found in a bedroom, where he was also suffering from several knife wounds.
An ambulance sent the individual to a nearby hospital, where he underwent surgical procedures. It is predicted that he will make a full recovery from his injuries.
Upon arriving on-site, detectives and a Crime Scene Investigator were summoned, and a search warrant for the house was secured. According to McLean, it was found that the event was limited to that one house and that no other individuals were engaged.
According to McLean, an investigation into the issue is still underway, and there is no danger to the general public.
The female victim’s body was transported to the Montana State Crime Lab, where an autopsy has been set for next Tuesday.
