JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) – A longtime Milton police officer has been found dead in an apparent suicide. The body of 43-year-old police Lt. John Conger was found Sunday on a walking path in Janesville. The Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation says an autopsy found Conger died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Conger had been with the Milton Police Department since May 1992.

In a statement, Milton Police Chief Dan Layber called Conger a “dedicated officer who was committed to the Milton community.” Janesville police and the DCI are investigating with help from the Wisconsin State Crime Lab.
