Police Seeking Info On Double Murder At May's Photo

Written by

Police vehicles and crime scene tape kept people from traveling on one block of Main Street in La Crosse on Saturday night and Sunday.

 

Two murders took place inside May's Photo shop Saturday afternoon, and police have given out limited information about the shootings of shop owner Paul Petras and his 19-year-old son A-J. Robbery might have been a motive. Captain Robert Lawrence wants witnesses who noticed unusual things in the Main Street area that afternoon to call the police dispatch, 608-785-5962, or the Crime-Stoppers line, 784-TIPS.  May's Photo put on a photography class shortly before the shootings. These are the first murders in the city of La Crosse since the shooting death of a young woman at an apartment building last March.

Murders Of Shop Owner And Son Being Investigated

Written by

Little new information early today about the shooting deaths of the owner of May's Photo in La Crosse and his teenage son.

Sources say Paul Petras and his son A.J. were shot and killed on Saturday afternoon inside the family's business on Main Street, in what may have started as a robbery.  The victims apparently were found hours after the crime.  The 400 block of Main Street was shut down to traffic for hours after police arrived.

You want more proof of how hot the summer of 2012 has been in La Crosse?

Only one year on record has had more days over 90 degrees than this year in the city. We've seen temps above 90 on 37 days...compared to the 1988 mark of 46 very hot days. The National Weather Service also reports 13 days above 95 degrees, and three days this year when we had at least 100 degrees. All of those figures are well above the average number of days with excessive heat. The weather service says La Crosse's temperatures in July resembled those of a typical summer in Miami.

Balloon Biz Goes Bust Over Helium Shortage

Written by

According to an old saying, 'what goes up must come down.'

Helium gas goes up, but the supply of helium is way down around America this year. Companies that sell the gas report a worldwide shortage, and the U-S government is selling domestic helium supplies to other countries. A co-owner of Family Tree Floral in West Salem, Clair Bissen, doesn't like it...and if you think Bissen is upset, imagine how his customers feel.  He says they've gone to other stores because he can't sell helium balloons.  Bissen says his store's helium supply was cut off weeks ago. The price of a tank of helium, good for about 150 balloons, is up about 30 per cent in some places.
