A La Crosse guy's a little lighter in the backpack today. Police say the guy was robbed early morning Saturday near the McDonald's on Losey. The victim's story: He was going to a house of people that he didn't really know. With a small backpack stuffed with over two thousand dollars and three bottles of cologne. Guy got jumped and beat pretty good. He says he was planning to use the money to buy a motorcycle. Guy never happened to mention what the three bottles of cologne were for. But he did deny that a drug deal had anything to do with the robbery.
Still some interviews to do for police in a train death on La Crosse's southside this weekend. Police say a 32 year-old woman was killed after getting hit by a train behind the Fiesta Mexicana restaurant off Mormon Coulee Road. Apparently she was sitting on the tracks at the time. Unofficially, police are saying the death looks like a suicide.
