Update: Person of Interest Involved in Kirkegaard Murder
Details are starting to come together in the death of Kari Kirkegaard. Sioux Falls Police confirm that the individual seen in security footage is directly related to the death.
Captain Greg VandeKamp constructs the timeline as the events played out on Saturday. The individual came to the location on a bicycle then left in Kirkegaard’s vehicle. Under the cover of darkness, the vehicle was returned to the area of Kirkegaard’s home either late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. The individual then left on the original bicycle.
Police ask that anyone who may have seen a dark blue, 4-door, 1998 Ford Explorer with a #15 racing decal on the rear window, a person on a bicycle or an abandoned bicycle contact Sioux Falls Police. VandeKamp says the investigation continues and the public’s help with any tips would be greatly appreciated.
