MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Madison Police say they’re treating the death of a 31-year-old state health researcher as a homicide.
Media reports said the victim was Jennifer Boyce – and she was due in court Friday to finalize a divorce after being married for three-and-a-half years.
Police said someone broke into Boyce’s apartment and crawled up a wall to break a patio door. A real estate agent was the first to find the body.
Officials also said a search warrant was executed late Thursday night at another Madison address – and more information was expected Friday.
Boyce worked as an epidemiologist for the state Health Services Department. Relatives said she has also competed in Madison’s Ironman Triathlon.
