‘Suspicious death’ being investigated

The Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Department is seeking help from the public regarding a suspicious death that occurred on Highway 53 near County Road TT in the town of Ettrick. 

A press release issued Friday morning did not state who passed away or the cause of death. The sheriff’s department has requested any surveillance and dash camera videos taken between Galesville and Blair between 7 and 9 p.m. on Wednesday evening. It requested to hear from anyone traveling in that area at the time who may have information to share. 

Those with information are asked to call the sheriff’s office at 715-538-4351 or email  dispatch@co.trempealeau.wi.us

The sheriff's department does not believe there is a threat to the public at this time. 



The Trempealeau County Sheriff's Department has determined that the death of a man Wednesday in Ettrick was in fact a homicide.
Trempealeau County Sheriff Brett Semingson said law enforcement does not believe the public is at risk and that the death is an "isolated incident."
He declined to comment on any details about the incident, including whether any suspects have been identified.
Semingson said the cause of death and the victim's name are also not yet being released. He said possible Marsy's Law considerations don't allow immediate release of the victim's name. Marsy's Law protects the civil rights of victims.
