The bodies of three men have been removed from the site of a collapsed six-story apartment building, the police chief in Davenport, Iowa, announced Monday. “We don’t have any other information at this time that there are any additional people missing,” Chief Jeff Bladel said. One of the residents injured in the collapse of an apartment building sued the city of Davenport and the building's current and former owners on Monday, alleging they knew of the deteriorating conditions and failed to warn residents of the risk. The complaint filed on behalf of Dayna Feuerbach alleges multiple counts of negligence and seeks unspecified damages. It also notes that additional lawsuits are likely. “The city had warning after warning,” attorney Jeffrey Goodman said in an interview with The Associated Press. He called it a common trend in major structural collapses he’s seen. “They had the responsibility to make sure that the safety of the citizens comes first. It is very clear that the city of Davenport didn’t do that.” Branden Colvin Sr.’s body was recovered Saturday. The body of Ryan Hitchcock was recovered Sunday and Daniel Prien early Monday. The discoveries came after authorities announced that the search for survivors had been completed, with attention turning to shoring up the remaining structure so recovery efforts could begin.

On May 20th, 2023, at about 3:07 AM Linn County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a report of a vehicle rollover on I-380 just south of Cedar Ridge Road.  Responders arrived to find a white Chevy Venture Van on its top in the west ditch of the southbound lanes.  There were a total of three occupants in the van.  All three occupants were transported by Center Point and Hiawatha Ambulance to St. Lukes Hospital in Cedar Rapids.  One of the occupants was pronounced dead at St. Lukes.  The other two have non-life-threatening injuries.  The names of the occupants will be released later pending notification of family.  The crash remains under investigation by the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.

 A Dubuque woman is accused of intentionally setting fire to the garage at her house on Saturday night. The fire happened just after 9:30 p.m. at a house in the 1700 block of Bristol Drive. Officers arrested one of the residents of the home, 41-year-old Sondra Willis, and charged her with second-degree arson. When asked by officers whether or not she intentionally started the fire, Willis said she did. She told officers she started the fire so she could "just get away." According to court documents, during a later interview with officers at the Dubuque Law Enforcement Center, Willis admitted to lighting the garage on fire by "pouring gas cans across the garage and lighting the fuel with a match." Authorities estimate the damage to the home is around $100,000. Willis is currently in the Dubuque County jail. Authorities are holding her on a $10,000 bond.

A former Buchanan County Sheriff’s Deputy has been sentenced by a judge after accepting a plea deal. A criminal complaint alleges that on February 4th, 2022, Deputy Klint Bentley stopped a vehicle in rural Buchanan County for speeding. Bentley asked the female driver to show him her breasts and implied he would withhold issuing a citation if she did. The female victim reportedly recorded the interaction during the traffic stop. Bentley continued soliciting photos from her via text message after the traffic stop concluded. On February 7th, 2022, the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office requested the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation look into the matter due to a conflict of interest. On February 8th, Bentley was terminated.

On May 13, 2023 at approximately 2113 hours Dubuque County Sheriff’s Deputies, Sherrill Fire, Holy Cross Fire and Centralia-Peosta Fire responded to 17979 Route 3 for a reported UTV accident with injuries.  The investigation revealed that a 2012 Can Am Commander was being operated in a field when it rolled.  Ramsey Kernall (24), of Dubuque, was transported by Sherrill EMS to Unity Point Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  Christian Ennis (26), of Sherrill, refused medical treatment on scene.  The accident is still under investigation.  The damage to the side by side is estimated at less than $1000.
