All England Cases to be Tried in Oneida CountySubmitted: 01/03/2013
Story By Lyndsey Stemm

RHINELANDER - Slowly but surely, the case against former Oneida and Forest County Medical Examiner Traci England moves forward.

England is charged with stealing body parts from a total of four victims.

It all began in Oneida County last January when police reported England took tissue from a cadaver to train her dog.

In May Forest County filed charges against her for the same thing.

Finally, in October Oneida County discovered two more victims. In this case she's accused of handing out cremated remains in plastic baggies to other dog trainers.

The Forest County case has been closed and re-opened in Oneida County, where all three of England's cases will now be prosecuted.

RHINELANDER - You can help families stay warm this winter by donating your extra winter clothing to the Big Bundle Up Campaign. Tourism groups across Wisconsin are looking for mittens, scarves, coats, and other winter gear.

"Those would be really helpful for a lot of people in the area," Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dana DeMet said. "And I think the biggest challenge in the Northwoods is that it's just not as visible, so it's a little harder sometimes to garner that support if you are not faced with it on the streets every day."
