2-24-14 beaver dam woman faces homicide charges

A Beaver Dam woman has been arrested on murder charges for the April 2001 death of a Beaver Dam area man in Columbia County.  38 year old Leah Waldhart was arrested Friday for first degree intentional homicide in the unsolved death of 42 year old Curtis Wylesky.  Waldhart was the girlfriend of Wylesky.  Columbia County Sheriff Dennis Richards says the investigation continues and it’s believed that there still are individuals in the public that have more information about the homicide.  Sheriff Richards hopes that with the arrest of Waldhart, those individuals will feel more comfortable in providing additional information into the investigation.  On April 23rd, 2001 Wylesky was found dead in a ditch on County Highway Z just outside of Fall River.  He was found near his truck and had injuries.  The death investigation went cold until recently, when investigators re-examined the reports, autopsy, evidence, and past investigation.
