Death of Itasca County woman ruled a homicide
Itasca County authorities say the death of a woman found in her Deer River home on Wednesday has been ruled a homicide.
Sonya Ann Smith, 43, died “as a result of multiple traumatic injuries due to assault,” the Itasca County Sheriff’s Office reported Friday. Officials said interviews and forensic evidence collected at the scene have led them to believe Smith’s death was not a random attack, and that they do not believe there is an ongoing threat to public safety.
