Charity Comfort Dog

My fellow LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and I were able to visit the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office to comfort the caring staff. Dora Comfort Dog, Mary Comfort Dog, Sage Comfort Dog and I were able to spend quite a long time with our new friends. The last month has been very tough for them, including the incident at MolsonCoors.

Following this visit, I headed over to MolsonCoors to comfort the staff returning to work after the workplace tragedy that occurred a week ago.

I am blessed to be able to serve my community today, this past week and always. ❤️🐾

UNIDENTIFIED IN #FLORIDA

On May 9, 1991 an unidentified male teenager was found floating in the Atlantic Ocean in Monroe County, #Florida. He had been deceased for less than a day.

His age is estimated to have been 16-17 years old at the time of his death and he stood approximately 5’2” tall.

He was found wearing grey pants over top red gym shorts with a white stripe and also wore a yellow colored necklace with a black cross around his neck.

The image featured is a facial reconstruction created by a #NCMEC Forensic Artist as what he may have looked like in life.

Do you know who he is? Please call the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST with any information you may have.

History Day March 22, 2017

This video was created by Ella Weiland, a young lady who's father, Det. Jason Weiland of the Everest Police Department, was killed in the line of duty in Northern Wisconsin in 2017. Three others were also killed that day. Ella is quite an amazing young lady and created an incredible video tribute to her father for a history contest at school. Ella was disappointed she did not win the contest, but keeps track of the views of the video on YouTube, hoping others will hear her father's story. Please take the time to watch, share the link, and remember Jason, as well as all our fallen heroes who impacted many lives.

Is everyone on here an ME or a Death Investigator? I'm an older adult who just graduated in December from UWW college. Death Investigations and those unidentified in morgues and missing persons is a project I have been researching for several years. My professor, Dr Pete Killoran wrote a letter of recommendation for me as well. I am trying to find work and/or someone willing to let me shadow on the job. Willing to move anywhere in the state. Would anyone here have suggestions?
Holiday fun at the MEO!!
He's gonna hate me for this, but Happy Birthday, Dr. Kelley...from the Fond du Lac contingent!!!!!
