Scottsbluff police are investigating the city’s first homicide of the year.
The body of 48-year-old Melissa May was found Tuesday morning in a Scottsbluff apartment. Officers were sent there for a welfare check.
It’s reported May lived in the same apartment complex, called R.C. Scot, but not in the unit where she was found.
Investigators say it appears May was killed by someone over the weekend but they’re not commenting on how she died.
No arrests have been made and police say they have no suspects.
