Albert Lea Police Lt. Darin Palmer said there was no indication as to the cause of the woman’s death.

“There were no real signs of anything, but it’s unusual for a 34-year-old to pass away,” Palmer said.

The woman was taken to the Dakota County Medical Examiner’s Office, a common practice for a person under the age of 50 who dies under unknown circumstances.

He did not know a timeline for autopsy results.

He said the incident was reported by someone who came to the house and found the woman. When authorities arrived at the house there were several people there, all of whom were interviewed by police.

No one has been taken into custody.
