Judge Found DEAD – He Was ZIP-TIED!
(FeaturedNews.com) – The Wisconsin Department of Justice recently issued a press release on detailing a critical incident investigation involving an armed suspect and a former state judge. According to the statement, the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office received a call about shots fired in a home in New Lisbon around 6:30 a.m. on June 3. The suspect remained in the house, requiring authorities to spend almost four hours negotiating entry. Once inside, they discovered 68-year-old retired Juneau County circuit judge John Roemer zip-tied to a chair and shot to death.

Officers found the suspect, Douglas K. Uhde, in the basement with a self-inflicted gunshot wound — they then transported him to a nearby hospital. Authorities took a firearm from the scene into evidence. The Wisconsin Department of Justice continues to lead the ongoing investigation into the incident and will present the Juneau County District Attorney with evidence in the case.
Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul (D) said in a statement that the incident was a “targeted act.” He explained the suspect had a grudge against the legal system. Roemer was the judge for a 2005 case in which Uhde received a six-year prison sentence for burglary.
The attorney general also noted the suspect had a list of targets, including Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D).
Uhde remains in critical condition.
