Police Think Group Attacked a Wis. Woman in Sept., Causing Her Death — But Nobody Has Been Arrested
Footage appears to show Ee Lee was attacked by a group of young people, according to search warrants obtained by local media outlets
A Milwaukee woman died after being assaulted in a park last September — and footage appears to show she was attacked by a group of young people, none of whom has been arrested, according to search warrants obtained by local media outlets.
Ee Lee, 36, was found unconscious by police around 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 16 close to a pond in Washington Park and died three days later from blunt force trauma to her head, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
"I really want to find out what is going on and why that would happen to her," Lee's sister Nancy Lee told FOX6.
Police said Lee was last seen walking into Washington Park at 6:18 p.m. wearing a light blue and gray hooded sweatshirt and carrying a green coat and yellow bag.
Surveillance footage in the area picked up Lee being chased and several people leaving the park after the incident.
According to recently released search warrants, footage allegedly showed a group of people under a tree near the pond. Lee appears in the footage and is seen running off towards the pond being chased by five to seven people, the Journal Sentinel reports.
Additional footage showed two groups leaving the park — one group of six people left on bikes near the Washington Park library. The other group of five took a different route, the Journal Sentinel, citing the warrants, repots.
According to FOX6, Lee was unclothed when she was found and there was evidence that she had been sexually assaulted, the warrants state.

Police said two teens, ages 15 and 16, reported finding Lee while they were biking in the park, according to the warrant. Police later determined that the clothes the two boys were wearing matched the clothing worn by two of the people who left the park with the group of five.
No arrests have been made in the attack.
"I just want justice for her," Lee's sister told FOX 6. "That's all I want. She don't deserve to die that way."
