WISN 12 reported that Hartford, Wisconsin police are now investigating the death of Jessie Blodgett, 19, as a homicide.

Blodgett went to a cast party after wrapping a local production of "Fiddler on the Roof" returning home at about 1 a.m. July 15.

Detectives noted a ligature mark around Blodgett's neck, but no rope or cord has been found nearby that may have caused the marks.

A man, 46, who was seen at the cast party with Blodgett sitting in his lap, has been interviewed by the police, according to an affidavit obtained by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The man told police "his girlfriend would be upset if she knew about his behavior with a 19-year-old girl," the affidavit states.

Law enforcement authorities have filed warrants to search his cell phone records, along with the victim’s.
