Chisholm teen tells cops he killed a man

Mosinee, Wis., police are investigating a report that a 17-year-old Chisholm boy killed a man with a baseball bat in 2004 and buried the body in a residential yard there.

Chisholm Police Chief Scott Erickson said the investigation is in the hands of Mosinee police after his department provided them the information that it had.

Erickson said the boy was questioned by Chisholm police, but wouldn't disclose what the teenager said.

"We're not even sure that there is a case there,'' Erickson said. "It could be all bogus.''

Joshua Seider, a 29-year-old construction worker who lives at the residence 14 miles south of Wausau, said Mosinee Police Chief Kenneth Muelling notified him that the property he rents in the city of Mosinee was going to be searched on Monday.

Seider said he was told by police that a boy had gone to the Chisholm Police Department and told them he killed a man with a baseball bat when he was visiting his older sister and brother-in-law who lived at the residence when the boy was 13 in 2004.

"On Monday, they brought a cadaver dog over to smell around,'' Seider said. "The dog scratched at a spot a little bit. He didn't give a sure signal to the handler. The next day the Chisholm detectives brought the kid up and he went in the backyard and pointed at the same spot.''

Seider said the boy displayed no emotion during the walk around on the property.

Seider said bone fragments, including what appeared to be rib bone fragments, were found in his yard, about 6 inches under ground, but he didn't know if they were human or animal.

Patrol Officer Jeff Sutherland of the Mosinee Police Department said today that the bones have been sent to a state crime lab in Wausau for analysis. "They appear to be animal bones,'' Sutherland said. "We're waiting for results from the crime lab to determine if they are human or not.''
