No arrests, no suspect, and no definite cause of death...
Still plenty of unanswered questions in the murders of a Barre Mills couple, Dennis and Merna Koula. La Crosse County Sheriff Steve Helgeson says they're still trying to figure out when the murders occurred.
The Koulas' son discovered the bodies of his parents early Monday morning. About a dozen investigators are still searching the couple's home near the Fox Hollow golf course. Autopsy results might be available late this week.
It's now considered a double murder...
La Crosse County Sheriff Steve Helgeson says Dennis and Merna Koula were murdered at their Barre Mills home. Nearly a dozen investigators have been assigned to the case, and the state crime lab is still involved in the probe. Dennis Koula was a pharmacist, and an owner of Valley View Ford in West Salem. The couple's bodies were discovered Monday morning by their son, when he came to the house on Fox Valley Drive.
HOW DID A LA CROSSE COUPLE IN THEIR 60'S DIE?
INVESTIGATORS HAVEN'T REACHED A CONCLUSION YET, AFTER INSPECTING THE HOUSE WHERE DENNIS AND MERNA KOULA LIVED AT BARRE MILLS. A SON FOUND HIS PARENTS' BODIES INSIDE THE HOUSE EARLY MONDAY. SHERIFF STEVE HELGESON SAYS THE STATE CRIME LAB WAS CALLED TO THE SCENE PRETTY QUICKLY.
AUTOPSIES MAY BE DONE IN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO. HELGESON SAYS NEIGHBORS DIDN'T SEE OR HEAR ANYTHING UNUSUAL DURING THE WEEKEND.
Probably not a good idea to take a shot at swimming across the Mississippi River. Three people found that out this morning. They were lucky because Randy Ziebell happened to see the swimmers struggling in the river while he was at his boathouse on Pettibone Island. Ziebell got out his boat and rescued Brook Gast, Dylan Low and Amanda Halderson. The LaCrosse Fire Department thanks Randy for his fast response and warns everyone that they need to be careful whenever they're swimming in the river and that the main channel is difficult to navigate for long distances due to a very strong current.
