11-25-13 break in beck case?

Are Fond du Lac County sheriff’s investigators a step closer to filing charges in a cold case homicide?    More than two decades have passed since 18 year old Berit Beck disappeared while driving from Sturdevant to Appleton.  Her van was found in the Fond du Lac Plaza parking lot and her body was found about a month later in a roadside ditch near Waupun.  Now WFDL news has learned that investigators may have gotten the break they have been looking for.   WFDL news has been told that investigators have talked with a former area resident who claims to have seen the body.   According to the source the witness was a friend of a former West Bend man who has long been considered a prime suspect in the case.   The witness reportedly told investigators that the suspect called him asking for help in disposing of the body.  The source says the witness, who now lives in Texas,  told investigators he saw Beck’s naked body in the back of the van.  Sheriff’s detectives say they can’t comment on the case…but say the investigation is continuing.  Sheriff’s Lieutenant Cameron McGee told WFDL news s its an open investigation, that nothing is imminent in terms of an arrest or charges and that he cannot comment any further.
