Murder in Door County, Wisconsin
DOOR COUNTY, WI (AP)-- Authorities say an Illinois man has confessed to killing his girlfriend while the couple was in Wisconsin's Door County to attend a wedding.
Sheriff Terry Vogel says the 35-year-old man is from Will County, Illinois, in far southwestern suburban Chicago. The man was arrested in Sister Bay, Wisconsin.
Police found the body of his 21-year-old girlfriend inside a motel room on Sunday. Several police cars and a Wisconsin Department of Justice crime lab vehicle out of Wausau were at the Sand Bay Beach Resort & Suites in the town of Nasewaupee; however, authorities would not immediately confirm if the activity at the resort was related to the homicide investigation.
The man is being held in Door County pending charges.
