QUINCY (WGEM) - Quincy Police on Wednesday searched a home at 1641 Hampshire Street as part of a homicide investigation.

According to whitepages.com, this address is connected with Timothy Bliefnick, the estranged husband of Rebecca Bliefnick, 41, who was found dead, Feb. 23 in her home in the 2500 block of Kentucky Road. Police said a family member checked in on her after failing to pick up her kids from school. That family member found Rebecca with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police said during the search on Wednesday, they detained but later released a person in the 2000 block of Hampshire.

They said they have not made any arrests and have not submitted any arrest warrants through the Adams County State’s Attorney.

Police said the information learned and evidence gathered over the last six days led them to search the home.

On Monday, Quincy Police Chief Adam Yates said eight detectives, three investigative supervisors, an investigator from the Illinois State Police and attorneys from the Adams County State’s Attorney’s office had been actively working together on this case.
