TOWN OF LAFAYETTE—Walworth County sheriff’s deputies and emergency personnel revived a heroin overdose victim Friday, July 21, according to a news release from the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies and members of the East Troy and Mukwonago rescue units received a call at 11:53 p.m. July 21 for the report of a heroin overdose at a residence on County Highway D in the town of LaFayette.
According to the release, a dispatcher at the Walworth County Communications Division gave directions to the caller to start CPR on the victim, described in the release as a 20-year-old female.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- The stub end of a section of U.S. Highway 12 freeway just north of Elkhorn dies abruptly in gravel, the remnant of a construction project that would have extended U.S. 12 to a point about one-half mile east of County Highway O near Whitewater.
The plan officially was mapped by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation back in 1967.
But it remained in the planning stages for decades, and now that empty section of freeway, barricaded from traffic, is a road going nowhere.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- They haven’t received the big-time, national media attention like other incidents around the country. However, Kurt Picknell has seen plenty during his two-plus years as Walworth County sheriff and 26 years overall with the office.
Picknell, 53, officially took the reins in January 2015. And although policing in the Stateline area may differ greatly from big-city law enforcement, it’s still law enforcement. That means long hours and dangerous, stressful situations go with the territory.
