Dubuque Homicide Investigation
DUBUQUE, Iowa - A Dubuque woman is dead and police believe the person who killed her is someone she knew. Shani K. Smith, 40, didn't show up for work Thursday morning. So police checked her home at 2995 John F. Kennedy Road. That's where they found her dead inside.
Gene Winders says his next door neighbors, Shani Smith and Teo Borrego, were good people. "They were some of the best neighbors we ever had,” said Winders. But Winders says things between the couple weren't so good lately, and that he and his wife haven’t seen Teo for the past two days. “They were having some problems; marital problems, and they thought they were going to separate,” said Winders
The Winders say they don't know what happened inside the home and just cannot believe Shani is gone.
An initial investigation indicates the death was a homicide but police say they do not have anyone in custody and have not named any suspects.
