Few signs that Doe probe will net more suspects

Published On: Nov 17 2012 11:05:32 PM CST
MILWAUKEE -

When a former aide to Gov. Scott Walker is sentenced next week, that will bring to a close the second of six cases that grew out of a long-running investigation into Walker's office when he served as the Milwaukee County executive.

Details of the probe are secret, so everyone from investigators to those being investigated are prohibited from discussing details. So it's not clear how close the so-called John Doe probe is to wrapping up.

But there have been few indications that additional suspects will be named. Online court records that are updated whenever new witnesses are granted immunity in exchange for their testimony haven't been modified in almost six months.

Walker has continually said he's not a target of the investigation, and has not been charged.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
