MENOMONEE FALLS - Police are hoping to find evidence in a Menomonee Falls landfill about the disappearance of a Milwaukee woman who has been missing for over two weeks.
Because the investigation is ongoing, the Milwaukee Police Department is releasing few details. Police found nothing in the landfill on Saturday, but Lt. Mark Stanmeyer says the search resumed Sunday.
Twenty-seven-year-old Kelly Dwyer's mother reported her missing Oct. 12 after she failed to show up for work. She hadn't been back to her apartment and hadn't been using her cellphone.
Dwyer's boyfriend has been arrested twice in recent days, once on drug charges and another for possession of child pornography. He has told police he and Dwyer snorted cocaine together Oct. 10, but he has denied involvement in her disappearance.
RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander Police Department identified the man who died after a house fire on Friday night as 35-year-old Jeffery J. Becker.
Rhinelander Fire Chief Terry Williams told Newswatch 12 on Monday afternoon that an autopsy indicates Becker died from smoke inhalation, but the autopsy results and further investigation is now in the hands of the state Department of Criminal Investigations.
Crews responded to the house at 320 Rose Street, near Hodag Park, around 7:30 p.m. Friday. Firefighters went inside the house soon after they arrived and found Becker unresponsive on the floor. Firefighters and paramedics tried to revive Becker, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
