Robbery Suspect's Body Found Near Litchfield
The search for a robbery suspect ended Friday with the discovery of his body in a rural wooded area of Litchfield.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office identified the body as Chad Ricker, 39, of Slinger, Wisconsin. Police believe he committed suicide.
In a release, the sheriff said Ricker was wanted for robbing a Walgreens in Litchfield on April 10. Days later, Ricker's car was discovered. Evidence inside indicated Ricker may have committed suicide, but his body was not found. A state police aerial search came up empty.
Then, Friday, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office brought in a volunteer group that assists with K-9 searches. Just before 2:00 p.m., a cadaver dog found Ricker's body.
An autopsy will determine the official cause of death, but early indications strongly suggest suicide.
