Jasper, Texas is pretty proud of their very own Todd Faircloth today. As he ventures to the Bassmasters Elite Tourny in Green Bay this week...he takes with him a $100 thousand paycheck. That, after winning the Elite Tourny in La Crosse held over the weekend. Fairlcoth said that he, in no way, thought he would win after a rough day Sunday.
And he did just that. A three and a half pounder with 15 minutes to go in the tourny. He topped Cliff Pace by over a pound.
Here's the top 12 from the Bassmasters Elite Series Tournament held in La Crosse. All weights are in pounds and ounces.
Todd Faircloth 62- 4 $100,000 winner and he automatically qualified for the Bassmasters Classic in February.
Three weeks of testimony have ended...and the Eric Koula murder trial could reach its finish sometime on Monday.
Jurors will get the case after closing arguments in La Crosse County Court. Eric consistently denies killing his parents for money, but he has admitted to lying about a forged check and a threatening note. Eric claims he was shopping for an anniversary present for his wife at the hour that police believe the murders occurred in Barre Mills. The defense suggests that professional killers must have shot Eric's parents, because very little physical evidence was left behind at the crime scene.
A first-time murderer does not necessarily make mistakes that would give him away...
That's what a government agent has testified, as the last witness at the Eric Koula murder trial in La Crosse.
FBI agent Robert Morton was called this morning to comment on crimes committed by first-timers, compared to experienced criminals. Morton says some murderers have learned techniques through TV shows, calling it the 'C-S-I effect.' Eric Koula's defense team argues that professional criminals may have killed Eric's parents, because so little incriminating evidence was left at the scene.
His picture was plastered all over Facebook for a week. Now, Jeremy Trussoni is behind bars . Trussoni was arrested last night after a short foot pursuit with La Crosse Police Investigators in the area of 1000 Avon Street. Trussoni was charged with Armed Robbery, Bailjumping, Obstructing and a local warrant. Trussoni is the suspect in a June 11th armed robbery of a local cab driver. With the help of the La Crosse Police Department Facebook page and a local Crime Stopper tip, Investigators were able to get a general location of Trussoni that led to his arrest.
