Wisconsin judge, found dead in basement of his home, part of a ‘targeted’ kill list

Wisconsin residents were shaken last week to learn that a former county judge, who was found murdered, was part of a “targeted attack” against the judicial system.

According to Fox News, local media outlets reported that Judge John Roemer, 68, was fatally shot on Friday. The judge was at his home in the small town of New Libson. Roemer had retired from his position on the bench in 2017. 

Not long after the judge was discovered dead, having been zip-tied to a chair, the story took another bizarre and scary turn, as the suspect involved in the shooting apparently had a “hit list” in his vehicle, which contained a number of high-profile and recognizable names.

Gov. Tony Evers (D), Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) all made the suspected killer’s list, though, thankfully, the threats against those individuals never came to fruition.

“We believe this was a targeted incident,” Attorney General Josh Kaul said.

“Because it’s an ongoing investigation we’re not going to go into the details of the information that’s available but so far the information that’s been gathered indicates it was a targeted and that the targeting was based on some sort of court case or court cases.”

The suspect in the killing is currently in critical condition, having gone to battle with SWAT team members in a several-hour-long standoff at the judge’s home.

“The Wisconsin DOJ’s Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) is leading the investigation into the incident and is assisted by the Sauk County Sheriff’s Office, Mauston Police Department, Elroy Police Department, Wisconsin State Crime Lab, Wisconsin State Patrol, DOJ’s Office of Crime Victim Services and the FBI,” Fox News reported.
