Obituary Condolences

The Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis has identified three persons of interest in the investigation of a 29-year-old woman who was found dead Sunday morning on a second floor balcony of a Fairmont City hotel.

"(The investigation) is progressing favorably," said Maj. John Lakin, deputy commander of the Major Case Squad and Madison County chief deputy sheriff. "At this point, we're pleased with the way the investigation is going and the cooperation we're getting."

The Major Case Squad identified the woman as Karinina G. Polk. Lakin said her last known addresses were in Granite City and Swansea.

The three persons of interest are from the metro-east, but no additional information is being released about them at this time because of the ongoing investigation, Lakin said. They are not in custody.

An autopsy confirmed Monday that Polk died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Polk was pronounced dead at 4:15 a.m. Sunday after her body was found on a balcony at the First Western Inn at 1941 Collinsville Road, according to St. Clair County Coroner Rick Stone.
