Deer River, MN(NNCNOW.com) --- The Itasca County Sheriff's Office is investigating the circumstances surrounding a suspicious death in Deer River on Wednesday.

Police responded just after 9 Wednesday morning to reports of a deceased female at a home on the 500 block of 5th Street Southeast.

As of now, there are no details surrounding the death but the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension was called to the scene.

Investigators did say, however, they do not believe there is an ongoing threat to public safety.

An autopsy is expected to be completed tomorrow to identify the woman and determine the cause and manner of her death.
