'Not Guilty' Plea For Lepsch In May's Photo Murders

Written by

Police in La Crosse have plenty of videos, and physical evidence, tying Jeffrey Lepsch to the September murders of Paul and A-J Petras.

Some of that evidence was reviewed during a pre-trial hearing today for Lepsch. Sergeant Pat Marco testified that many of the cameras and other items stolen from the store were discovered at Lepsch's house in Dakota.  Other witnesses spoke about the downtown surveillance videos showing a man leaving the store on the day of the shootings, and driving a van traced to Lepsch.

 

Judge Ramona Gonzalez declared there's enough evidence to schedule a trial. The judge also stated on the record that her husband went to school with victim Paul Petras, and that she occasionally has shopped at the photo store where the murders occurred...but she promises to hear the case with an open mind.

Riverboats Draw Curious Tourists To Lax Riverfront

Written by

You don't see too many paddle-wheeler boats on the Upper Mississippi any more.

But the boats are back this fall, and sightseers are coming to La Crosse to get a look at them. Dave Clements from the La Crosse Convention and Visitor Bureau says that curiosity is good for the local tourism business. For example, Clements says a group belonging to the GREAT gang resistance program wanted to see a paddlewheeler last week, and they were "in awe" of the American Queen.  That boat arrived in La Crosse this morning for another stop. It has two more visits scheduled here this season...on November 3rd and 7th.
