Rochester police say woman likely killed in hotel

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) -- Police say the woman whose remains were found in a suitcase in Wisconsin this month was likely killed in a Rochester hotel room.

The remains of Laura Simonson, of Farmington, and another unidentified woman were found in a pair of suitcases in Walworth County, Wisconsin June 5.

Rochester police said Thursday Simonson and the man arrested in the case checked into the Microtel Inn and Suites on Nov. 2 and that the man checked out the next day without Simonson. Three weeks later Simonson's family filed a missing persons report.

Highway workers in Walworth County, Wisconsin discovered two suitcases discarded along a rural road. Authorities discovered the remains of two females inside and identified one as Simonson. Rochester Capt. John Sherwin says the suspect has confessed to being involved in Simonson's death.
