What Happened To Lily Peters?
Lily’s father phoned the police when she failed to return home from visiting her aunt’s house on Sunday night, according to a news release issued by the Chippewa Falls Police Department on Monday.
The bicycle was located later that night in a forested area near a walking route that is close to her aunt’s house and the Leinenkugel’s Brewery parking lot, according to police.
It was around 9 a.m. Overnight, officials looked for Lily by visiting the door of the house and utilizing K9 teams to track her down and bring her to justice.
They deployed a drone to hunt for her bike in the forested area where it was discovered. According to officials, her corpse was discovered in the bushes along the walking track on Monday.
In a statement, the Chippewa County Coroner’s Office verified that the bones were those of Lily.
