Baby Angel Investigation Continues

Written by

After 7 months, Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says it was time to lay an unknown child to rest in a local cemetary. Baby Angel was found by boaters last year, floating in the Mississippi River. Brand says the tips have slowed as to who gave up the child and why the baby was placed in the river. But there's another reason they would like to find that person.....an empty, donated, headstone.

Since Angel was found last September, investigators have questioned
people and asked out of state agencies to report any leads. So far....nothing concrete at all. He said they are working with the child's DNA to possibly link her mother to the case. Angel was buried Saturday.

Two people have been arrested in Tomah, in connection with an attempted murder in Black River Falls...

Daniel Triplett and Dreama Harvey were picked up in the parking lot of the Tomah Wal-Mart on Saturday, after Tomah police received a tip about Triplett. The Black River police believe that Triplett stabbed another person in that city.  Police have not said what Harvey's connection might be.

Will the Postal Service be swayed by hundreds of customers from just one Wisconsin town?

 

A petition drive to keep the Bangor Post Office open has gathered more than 400 signatures from people who want the permanent post office building re-opened. The post office at Bangor was suddenly closed for repairs in January, and there's no indication from the landlord when things might be fixed. Many of its regular customers worry that a temporary closure might give the Postal Service an excuse to shut down the building completely.

Murder Investigation Making Progress

Written by

The La Crosse Police Department in conjunction with the Department of Criminal Investigations continue to investigate both the drive by shooting on La Crosse's north side and the Sara Hougom homicide from March 26th. Currently there is no one in custody and no one has been charged in either incident. The investigation, however, has made progress. Investigators have identified people of interest, some of which have been interviewed and some that are yet to be located. La Crosse police say the investigation is at a critical juncture and releasing additional information could compromise the progress being made.

If Oktoberfest needs more sources of funding, how about issuing permits for spots along the parade routes?

La Crosse Mayor Matt Harter says it's an idea worth studying...and such a permit might allow the holder to drink openly at the parade site, which is not allowed now. Harter suggests a permit fee of around $5 to $10.  He brought up the permit idea during an appearance today on "The Morning Sickness" on 95-7 The Rock.

No Burning In Bergen Or Stoddard

Written by

Cookouts will be allowed in Stoddard for Easter weekend, but other outdoor burning in the village is banned until further notice.

The Stoddard-Bergen Fire Department has declared an outdoor fire ban for that area because of the continuing dry weather. The one exception will be for charcoal grills at private homes, and the grills have to be on surfaces like concrete that won't catch on fire.
