SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Police say a woman abducted in Sioux Falls has been found dead. Authorities say the body of Pasqalina Esen Badi was found Monday afternoon along a road just outside the Sioux Falls city limits.

At a news briefing Tuesday, Lt. Terry Matia said a 19-year-old Sioux Falls man is a person of interest in the case and has been booked into the Minnehaha County Jail on unrelated warrants.

Matia says the 20-year-old Badi was abducted from her place of employment early Sunday in Sioux Falls.

An autopsy is expected to be done Tuesday. Matia did not say what might have caused her death.
