Lommen-Murder Charge
California man now charged in mother's death
News Staff - January 9, 2018

RAPID CITY, S.D.  - The man arrested in Rapid City following a New Year’s Day chase has now been charged with the murder of his mother.

Tosten David Walsh Lommen is accused of strangling Michelle Walsh on Dec. 30, in her Palm Springs, California home.

Lommen was spotted Jan. 1 in South Dakota, speeding on Interstate 90 in Spearfish. After a 50-mile high-speed chase, Lommen was arrested and highway patrol troopers discovered Walsh’s body wrapped in a blanket in the back of the vehicle.

According to a California arrest warrant, Lommen admits he choked her; that he “freaked out” afterward and tried to clean up the “blood stains on the carpet.” The autopsy indicates that Walsh was beaten as well as strangled.

Lommen is expected to be extradited to California.
