Police Investigate Murder of a Springfield Woman


SPRINGFIELD -- Officers responded to a home in the 1400 block of North 17th street at 9:30 AM after a report that someone maybe hurt inside the home. When police arrived on scene they found 25-year-old Kayla Dillon dead. 

After checking dispatch records, investigators realized neighbors made a disturbance call for that address just last night.
"Officers had been out there last night checked the area, didn't come up with anything. With those facts and some of the things we put together with the caller, we went ahead and made entry into the house and we found our victim inside," said Deputy Police Chief Cliff Buscher.

Police do have a suspect in the case, he is being questioned by investigators.

An autopsy is scheduled for today.
