A 10-year-old girl who went missing Sunday after visiting family nearby has been found dead in western Wisconsin, and police are looking for whoever is responsible for killing her.
The body of Iliana "Lily" Peters was found in the woods at 9:15 a.m. Monday near her aunt's home in Chippewa Falls close to the walking trail at the end of Grove Street and the Leinenkugel's brewery parking lot, police said.
"At this point, we are considering this a homicide investigation," Chippewa Falls Police Chief Matt Kelm said at a news conference early Monday afternoon attended by WQOW-TV and other media in the Eau Claire area. "We do not have anyone in custody at this time, and we are continuing to follow up on multiple leads."
