The post states:

At approximately 2:40 a.m., Tuesday, June 22, Lakeville Police were requested by another agency to check the welfare of a female around 203rd Street and Icefall Trail. Upon arrival, officers found the female lying in a parking lot, deceased. The identity of the female is not known at this time. The investigation is still in the very early stages. The Minnesota BCA Crime Scene Unit has been notified and are assisting in the investigation. An adult male is being held in conjunction with the case. There is no known threat to community safety. Lakeville Police will update the public and news media by Facebook and Twitter when information is available. The next scheduled update will be at noon.
The intersection in which the police were called to a welfare check features a bank, a child-care, auto repair shop, dental clinic, and a building materials store. It's unclear as to what parking lot the female was found in.
Since the investigation is ongoing we will update this post as soon as there is more information available.
