During a lull in the midday sun, a motorist noticed a strange man laying in a ditch along the highway and called the cops. Apparently, the man had a single gunshot wound to the head. It appears that two suspects were involved in the slaying. This escapade is still a work in progress. A man in a silver 2003 Audi A4 is also in the running. One suspect is believed to be in the lead, while the other is still in the dark. Regardless, the cops have yet to identify the slayer. Until the slayer is found, the investigation will continue. Until then, be on the lookout.
The state of South Dakota is on high alert. As of press time, the aforementioned two suspects were still on the lam, but the state police are aplenty.

Dhani Aguirre admitted to shooting his own cousin
Earlier this week, Sioux City Police took a slap dash approach to what should have been an uncomplicated incident. A slew of officers arrived in the early morning hours and were greeted by a harried posse who were armed and dangerous. The likes of a dude in the middle took the brunt of the brunt of the blows, he was not the only one to receive the boot. Those with a discerning eye will have no trouble spotting a number of suspicious looking individuals. It is a safe bet that the sexiest of the lot was involved in some kind of altercation. Despite the shenanigans, police officers remain calm and well-informed, as evidenced by their response time. Regardless, the crime is still pending, as of this writing.
Jordyn Easton charged with accessory after the fact
Several days after a shooting in Sioux City left one man dead and another in critical condition, investigators have a new suspect. A 19-year-old woman in the neighborhood told investigators that she was in a white BMW with D-Andre Snipes when the shooting occurred. She also testified that she had a physical exchange with Snipes. The woman didn’t know if the driver and the passenger were teenagers or adults. She did say that there were three other individuals in the vehicle, but they were wearing masks.
The woman also testified that she waited a dozen minutes before calling 911. She said she thought the person who was outside her house was the victim. She also claimed that she thought the victim was a direct threat.
Police seek continued accreditation
Continuing accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) is the gold standard for public safety agencies. Accreditation is a continuous process and remains in effect for four years. The SCPD maintains all privileges associated with CALEA status.
The Sioux City Police Department has recently sought accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation of law Enforcement Agencies in Chicago, Illinois. As an accredited agency, the department continues to meet or exceed CALEA standards.
CALEA accreditation is an international gold standard for public safety agencies. The accreditation process requires agencies to prove they are compliant with CALEA standards. Accreditation provides the Sioux City Police Department with the highest standards in public safety, according to Chief Karl Jegeris.
The Rapid City Police Department recently made several arrests in connection with two armed robberies. Chief Karl Jegeris is proud of his officers and is working to ensure the city remains free of dangerous drugs.
