Foul play suspected in death of man found in Golden Valley home with severe neck injury

Law enforcement says foul play is suspected in the death of a man whose body was found in a Golden Valley home, two days after anyone last heard from him, with a severe neck injury and numerous cuts on his body.

Hennepin County sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a home in the 1400 block of Skyline Drive on May 19 about 2:15 p.m. Inside they located Kurt Jeffery Wiessner, 71, of Minneapolis, with his "head tucked completely under him," according to a court document filed Tuesday by the Sheriff's Office.

An autopsy by the Medical Examiner's Office found that Wiessner had "lacerations over various parts of his body" and suffered an "internal decapitation," which is a rupture of ligaments that connect the skull to the neck, the filing continued.
