Death Investigation Continues
Dubuque Police are continuing their investigation into the death of a man in his home on December 26th, but say that the death does not appear to be a homicide.
Dale Ricke of Dubuque was found dead in his Washington Street home with a cut across his left eye and his face swollen after nine in the morning on the 26th. Evidence found suggests that criminal activity may have taken place, but police will not rule that out until the cause of death is determined.
Investigators are also trying to determine if Ricke had medical or mental health issues which may have contributed to his death.
