WHITEWATER, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Whitewater have suspended their investigation into an assault on a son of state Senate Republican Neal Kedzie.
The lawmaker said his 22-year-old son Sean confronted two men taking down a Mitt Romney yard sign at the height of the presidential race in October. Police said Kedzie and other witnesses could not identify the same suspect for one of the attackers.
Officers were told that Sean Kedzie was wrestled to the ground by the two men – and they struck him in the face and head as they choked him. Police quoted the victim as saying it was “for the best” that the investigation be suspended.
It will be re-opened if police find new evidence – or if Kedzie asks that it be re-opened.
