February death at Plymouth hotel ruled homicide; no one in custody

A woman’s death last month in a Plymouth hotel room has been ruled a homicide, according to a news release from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Lisa Petersen, 41, of Buffalo, was killed on Feb. 7 at the Red Roof Inn on the 2600 block of Annapolis Lane North, the news release states. Her death was the result of “multiple blunt force injuries.”

Plymouth Police Capt. Michael Reed said officers responded to the hotel room at 1:22 a.m. and performed life-saving measures on the victim. However, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her death had been considered suspicious in nature, but police investigators were waiting on the medical examiner’s report before taking further action, Reed said.

All of the people who were in the room when Petersen was injured were accounted for, police said, and investigators are now working to identify a suspect.

No arrests have been made as of Monday afternoon.
