The sheriff’s office narrowed down that the last time Madison was seen alive was between 10 and 11:30 p.m. last Saturday night in the downtown Austin area.
On Thursday, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigated a residence in the 400 block of South Main Street that was tied to the homicide case, between noon and 7 p.m., taking photographs and measurements of the property as well as collecting evidence from a trash bin.
A second home at the corner of Eighth Street Northeast and Third Avenue Northeast was also taped off by the sheriff’s department. It too had been related to the case.
