Homicide

Police arrest suspect after women's remains found in suitcases, take evidence from his home

Detectives wearing hazmat suits removed bags of evidence and a refrigerator from the suburban Milwaukee apartment of a man arrested in connection with two suitcases found stuffed with the remains of two women.

Prosecutors have not charged the 52-year-old security officer. Investigators searched his West Allis home Wednesday.

Highway workers discovered the suitcases June 5 on a rural highway in the Town of Geneva, about 50 miles southwest of Milwaukee.

Police have identified one of the women found in the suitcases as 37-year-old Laura Simonson who was reported missing in November. Her father, Richard Wierson, tells the Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1nKqDlo ) that the Farmington, Minnesota woman struggled with mental illness and that he has cared for her seven children since 2010.

Authorities have not identified the other remains.
