When he arrived at home the man said he had hit a person while driving. This prompted a call to the police around 7pm on Tuesday. At the same time officials learned that an 11 year-old girl was missing. She was later found dead on Viikintie.
The suspect registered a 0.0225 blood-alcohol content when apprehended by police, who are investigating the case as involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment, among other charges.
