    Woman Still Missing After Nearly A Year

    Police need your help in finding a woman missing in the Prairie du Chien area since last year's holiday season.

    Shannon Fischer’s parents reported her missing December 28, 2006. Now at least three detectives are working on what is now believed to be a murder investigation.

    "At this point we're absolutely operating on the theory this is a homicide. She did keep in reasonably close contact with friends and family, she was seen at all times," says Prairie du Chien police chief Michael King.

    That was until December 18, 2006.

    King says around the time of her disappearance, Shannon Fischer had been staying with her then boyfriend in the city's downtown, when they had a falling out.

    "He did indicate that at some point he did, I believe his exact words were "she's annoying and I got rid of her," which is a poor choice of words, which obviously made him an immediate person of interest."

    Detectives followed up on that lead, along with investigators from the Division of Criminal Investigation and the FBI.

    According to this interview, the boyfriend voluntarily took a voice stress test (they don't do Lie Detector there) and passed according to the test expert.

    I wonder what was wrong with her that she couldn't lead a normal adult life with a job, take care of her children, etc. Was she mentally ill? Mentally or physically disabled?

    A new plea for answers to the mystery of what happened to a local woman, believed to have become the victim of a murder.

    Det. Sprosty says until he has more information, he cannot say if this is a random murder. The Division of Criminal Investigation in the Department of Justice is assisting local police.

    Lengthy article and video:

    I wonder what made him just walk into the police station and confess, after almost four years? I'm glad he did. I hope her family can find some peace and some closure.

    Boyfriend confesses to killing PdC woman in 2006

    http://lacrossetribune.com/news/loca...cc4c002e0.html

    Burroughs told police he got into an argument with Fischer on Dec. 18, 2006, and put her in a choke hold until she stopped breathing, according to a probable cause statement filed today. He kept her body in a closet for several days before dumping it in a garbage container behind the building, according to the statement.
    Sadly, it seems like her remains may not be found.

    I'm glad he came forward, but so sad to think they'll never find Shannon's remains.

    A Prairie du Chien man who authorities said confessed earlier this month to killing his girlfriend four years ago in a dispute over drugs pleaded not guilty today to charges in her death.
    More details at link, although not much info.

    A competency hearing is scheduled later this month. You can look the case up here: http://wcca.wicourts.gov/index.xsl

    Suspect found not competent

    The man charged with the 2006 murder of Shannon Lynn Fischer, of Prairie du Chien, was found not competent to stand trial at a hearing Thursday in Crawford County Circuit Court.

    [snip]

    Burroughs has pleaded not guilty to first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse in the disappearance of the 23-year-old Fischer four years ago.

    [snip]

    Burroughs said he was in his apartment on or around Dec. 18, 2006, when he got into an argument with Fischer. Burroughs said he choked Fischer and kept her body in his closet for about three days before disposing of it in a garbage bin near the parking lot of his apartment complex at 207 E. Blackhawk Ave. in Prairie du Chien.

    PdC murder suspect ruled incompetent

    Legal proceedings were suspended Thursday against a Prairie du Chien man accused of killing his girlfriend when a judge ruled him incompetent to stand trial. Michael Burroughs, 26, was committed to the state and will be treated for a disorder, diagnosed as either delusions or psychosis, that causes him to believe hes being poisoned.

    That belief, his attorney contended, is what led Burroughs to walk into the police station Oct. 10, nearly four years after the disappearance of Shannon Fischer, and confess to her killing. And it is compelling him to want to go to prison, where he believes the air will be fresher.

    If treatment is successful, Burroughs again will face charges of first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse. With medication, a psychiatrist testified, he should be well enough to aid in his defense within 12 months.
