Information on names of dead has been released, but not the name of the shooter, as of earlier this morning.

Domestic disturbance, as I suspected with the lawyer involved. Shame how many uninvolved lives have been forever disrupted and the guy will spend the rest of his days rotting in prison.

Officer was a good friend of some people we know in Wausau, but I never met him. My Mom knew one of the bank tellers. While the Wausau area is a fairly large city, lots of people are going to have real close ties to this.

Edit: I see they just released his name. 45 year old guy.

Funeral is today, procession 1-3pm blocking major portions of
Wausau. Signs all over reading, expect delays

I'm pretending to be a local Wausau driver today shuttling loads of whey from the warehouse to the KRAFT plant, crossing the procession route both ways. Guess I will do what I can, then stop and show my respect, when I run into something solid.

Sad, Sad, Sad situation.
