Police look for 2 woman in death of Stout student


MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) – Police in northwestern Wisconsin are looking for two women who they say may have information about the death of a student at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Twenty-four-year-old Hussain Alnahdi was fatally assaulted Halloween weekend in downtown Menomonie. Police Cmdr. Todd Swartz says investigators are in the process of determining the women’s involvement in the case, but he would not elaborate. The police department distributed photos of the women which Swartz said were captured the morning Alnahdi was killed.

Police say a preliminary autopsy report shows Alnahdi died of a traumatic brain injury. Toxicology tests are pending.

Alnahdi was from Saudi Arabia and was a junior majoring in business administration. The university foundation, private donations and the Council on American-Islamic Relations are offering $20,000 in reward money leading to the person who killed Alnahdi.
