Article About Student's Death Found in Edward Lanphear's Home

July 15, 2008

Wood County detectives found a noose, plastic restraints, firearms, and a newspaper story about a homicide probe among other items in the home of a Wisconsin Rapids man accused of abducting two men last week, according to court documents.

JSOnline reports the Wood County sheriff's investigators who searched the home of Edward Lanphear last week found a newspaper clipping of a story about the death of Brittany Sue Zimmermann, the 21-year-old UW-Madison student found dead in her apartment in April.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain says a detective plans to talk with Wood County authorities within the next day. Investigators also will see if Lanphear knew any of Zimmerman's friends or relatives. Zimmerman was from Marshfield, also in Wood County.

Another highlighted newspaper found in the home contains news about the search for a missing 23-year-old Grand Rapids man who later turned up in Lanphear's basement.
