Body Pulled From Car In Swift Creek

Written by

La Crosse Police have not released the name of a person found dead inside a car that went through the ice on Swift Creek.

 

The body was recovered after the car was removed from the water early Wednesday afternoon.  Relatives are being notified.  The car was in about 6 to 8 feet of water.  Police believe it went off the road at the west end of Jackson Street and rolled downhill onto the ice, sometime on Tuesday night or early Wednesday.

Ever since a recent Viterbo graduate drowned after drinking two years ago, that graduate's mother has been busy campaigning to have certain types of high-proof alcohol banned.

Luanne Wielichowski hopes the Wisconsin Legislature passes a ban on high-potency liquor in 2014.  The bill being circulated in the Assembly would set five-figure fines and possible prison time for stores that sell products like Everclear.  At least one state lobbying group is expected to fight the proposed ban. Jeff Wielichowski drank Everclear with Red Bull and Gatorade the night that he drowned in his family's swimming pool in 2011.

The prime shelters and park facilities in La Crosse get booked quickly on the first business day of a new year. The City Hall park and rec office takes reservations in-person starting at 8:30 a-m on January 2nd. And the on-line reservations open even earlier that day, just after midnight. The reservations have to be paid in full at the time they're made, so have your checkbooks or credit cards ready.
