(AP) – Relatives and neighbors say a woman whose body was found wrapped in a blanket in a suburban Milwaukee apartment had not been seen or heard from in three months. They believe the body is that of the 50-year-old woman who lived in the Cudahy apartment, although authorities haven’t yet identified the person or the cause of death. WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1tpTkIH ) reports police have taken the woman’s boyfriend into custody on a probation hold. Police executed a search warrant at the apartment last week after neighbors reported a foul smell and the landlord said the woman hadn’t paid rent in a couple months. The woman’s father says he and his grandson gave police DNA samples to help make a positive identification.

UW wants $95 million more in next state budget http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/uw-wants-95-million-more-in-next-state-budget/ http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/uw-wants-95-million-more-in-next-state-budget/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 20:09:33 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=94584 More >]]> MADISON, Wis. (AP) – University of Wisconsin System officials want Gov. Scott Walker to give them another $95.2 million in tax dollars in the next state budget. System officials say they need the money to fund the new Talent Development Initiative, a plan designed to create science and technology jobs, boost graduation numbers, place more students in internships and maintain academic quality in light of a Republican-imposed tuition freeze. The Board of Regents is expected to vote on whether to approve submitting the request to Walker during a meeting at UW-Oshkosh on Thursday. Walker sent a letter to state agencies in July warning them to expect no additional tax dollars in the next budget. His spokeswoman didn’t immediately return messages.

Avery wants federal lawsuit dismissed http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/avery-wants-federal-lawsuit-dismissed/ http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/avery-wants-federal-lawsuit-dismissed/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 20:06:30 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=94582 More >]]> MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) – The man imprisoned for killing a 25-year-old photographer on his family property near Mishicot in 2005 wants his federal civil rights lawsuit dismissed. Steven Avery sued several public officials in 2012, claiming he was subjected to unreasonable search and seizures and was denied his free speech rights while being held in the Calumet County Jail. Avery wanted $15 million in punitive damages. WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1q0mPAd ) reports Avery’s handwritten motion to dismiss comes just a few weeks after federal Judge Lynn Adelman denied Avery’s request for a publicly-funded attorney. The attorney for the defendants, including Sheriff Gerald Pagel, is seeking to have the suit dismissed with prejudice, so Avery could not refile the claim. Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey were convicted of killing Teresa Halbach on Oct. 31, 2005.

They were assisted by K-9 “Timo” and his handler of the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office.

On Saturday, August 2nd at approximately 11:30 p.m., there was a traffic stop on North Union Street near Water Street. The driver, 18-year-old Devon Ruskowsky of Necedah, cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, and a passenger, 20-year-old Derek Georgeson of New Lisbon, was cited for underage drinking. K-9 Kantor and his handler of the Mauston Police Department assisted with the stop.

On Sunday, August 3rd in the early morning hour of 3:15 a.m., Mauston Police Department K-9 Kantor and his handler were dispatched to assist Juneau County Sheriff’s Office with a traffic crash in the Kildare Township on County Hwy HH at 55th Street. The driver of the vehicle had fled into the woods. Kantor, his handler, and a Wisconsin State Patrol Trooper decided to track the suspect into the woods. In approximately 4 minutes, the suspect was located lying on his stomach in the woods after approximately 60 yards of tracking with a scent twenty minutes old. Kantor never lost scent of the suspect even though it was in very dense woods, with numerous animal cross tracks. The suspect had cuts to his extremities when he was located. The trooper took him into custody without further incident.
