May 22, 2019

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — Police in Mitchell are investigating the deaths of two people at a hotel.

The bodies of a man and woman were discovered Monday at the Thunderbird Lodge. Authorities say they checked into the hotel Saturday night and arrived in a U-Haul van from another state.

Police don’t suspect foul play, but say they are having difficulty identifying the two because they took steps to avoid identification. Officials did not explain further.

The South Dakota Department of Criminal Investigation and South Dakota Highway Patrol are assisting in the investigation.
