How much of a part did Christina Lorenz play in the death of a friend and the dumping of his body in La Crosse last August?
Families of Lorenz and victim Tony Du Charme have widely different views, which came out in court yesterday when Lorenz was sentenced to prison.

Over a year, five thousand tax forms had Social Security numbers in the address panes. Officials said neither incident resulted in any cases of identity theft. And they’ve made a number of security improvements since then.
