Cudahy police identify person of interest in woman's death

CUDAHY, WI (WTAQ) - Suburban Milwaukee police are holding a man as a person of interest in the death of a woman in an apartment building in Cudahy.

Her father tells the Journal Sentinel that he and his son provided saliva samples to police -- and it helped confirm the identity of 50-year-old Peggy Pamperin.

Police said they found the body last Wednesday "concealed" in an upstairs apartment. Reports said she could have been dead for months.

A search warrant affidavit said the mummified body was covered with papers and wrapped in a blanket. The Milwaukee County medical examiner was still trying to confirm the woman's identity at last word, as well as a cause of death.

WISN-TV said the building's landlord stopped by to find out why Pamperin was no longer paying rent -- and neighbors reported an odor from the apartment.

Pamperin's father, Richard Chybowski, tells the Journal Sentinel his daughter lives in the apartment where the body was discovered -- and he has tried to contact her for months but couldn't. He said the man in custody might have been someone living with Pamperin.
