Rock Guitarist Promotes Obama At UWL

Written by

The Obama campaign is becoming familiar with the U-W-La Crosse campus...

Vice President Joe Biden will speak at the Cartwright Center on campus tomorrow. And today, an Obama bus pulled up near the football stadium, bringing a rock musician to meet with students. Chris Walla plays guitar with the band 'Death Cab for Cutie,' and he told La Crosse students that college might not be very affordable if Mitt Romney becomes president. Walla says he's traveling to Wisconsin campuses with the Obama bus because he wants more young people to be able to afford college.

More leads to develop in the May's photo  murders.  La Crosse police say the investigation into the shootings continues despite the arrest this week of 39 year-old Jeffry Lepsch at his home  in Dakota, Minnesota yesterday. Police chief Ron Tischer says no  additional suspects are being sought in the murders at this time but investigators are still piecing together some information regarding the  crime.  Not the least of which is where the murder weapon might be.  They say Lepsch stole camera equipment worth thousands of dollars during the deadly robbery, presumably to sell through his online camera business.  Lepsch had previously been convicted of stealing sixty thousand dollars worth of  equipment from the Ace Hardware distribution center and selling it online.  Much of the camera equipment stolen from May's was recovered at the Lepsch home.

S Dakota Police Stop Leads To Onalaska Drug Bust

Written by

Almost 40 pounds of marijuana was delivered to a house in Onalaska this week...with help from the cops.

A police informant took the pot to the Benjamin Zimmer home on Monday, and left it in a cooler. Later, another Onalaska man allegedly came by the house and picked up some of the marijuana. Now, both Zimmer and Brandon Eckert are facing drug charges. Judge Scott Horne says Zimmer is accused of warehousing, while Eckert is charged with drug possession.  Zimmer reportedly was going to pay the informant about 90-thousand dollars for the pot.

 

Police stopped the informant near Mount Rushmore in South Dakota on Sunday, and found the marijuana in his car. When he said he was assigned to deliver it to Zimmer in Onalaska, the police brought the informant to La Crosse to help arrange for the drug drop.

Mays Arrest

Written by

La Crosse police say they've arrested Jeffrey Lepsch in the murders of Paul and A.J. Petras at May's photo in downtown La Crosse on September 15th.  More info from police tomorrow.  Lepsch arrested at his home in Dakota, Minnesota this afternoon.  Lepsch was convicted several years ago of stealing tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from the Ace Hardware distribution center when he worked there as a security guard.  He apparently sold much of what he stole over the internet.   Lepsch was still paying restitution for that crime when he was arrested for the Petras murders.
