    The only background information I could access about this case is from the book linked below. There's probably more articles about Michael but I can't view them.

    101 Wisconsin Unsolved Mysteries by Marv Balousek

    #63 - Who killed Michael Fisher?

    On the morning of June 19 1966, Michael Fisher prepared his wagon and set off to begin his paper route. He only delivered one paper though. Later that morning, his sister found the wagon with the undelivered papers and finished the deliveries herself. She was unsure on what had happened to him. Michael's body was found about twelve hours later; in a ditch that was two miles away from home. Michael's head was wrapped in a red sweatshirt and he was lying on his back, fully clothed. There were no signs that he was sexually molested nor any indications that a struggle had ensued. The cause of death was determined to be a crushing blow to the head and he was most likely dead before being left in the ditch.

    Investigators ruled out a hit and run accident. There was no evidence found on the street that would indicate such a scenario had occurred. The wire-cutters used by Michael was the one item missing and it has never been located. A neighbor called in a tip saying that he had seen two men take Michael and drive off in a 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne. A description of the car and of one of the men was provided and detectives followed up on many leads based on this description. Despite a committed investigation, the killer(s) was never found and the murder remains unsolved.

    Bumping, it's been over 50 years since Michael was murdered.

    A book was recently published that was inspired by this case.
