HOWARD, WI (WTAQ) - It’s been a year since and still no arrests in the shooting death of 43-year-old Thomas Wick who was found by a friend in his Howard home.
Wick was the owner of Bayside Electric.
Brown County Sheriff Capt. Jeff Sanborn says Thomas Wick’s death is anything but a “cold case”.
Regular tips come in that they follow up on. But physical evidence is still at the state crime lab, which Sanborn says is still the best path for resolve in this case.
Sanborn says they also recently teamed up with the State Justice Department’s Division of Criminal Investigations who will bring an array of expertise to the case and fresh eyes.
Sister in law, Leanne Wick says never thought a year would go by without an arrest.
She says it makes her sick that the person who did this is still out there and believes they could do it again.
Leanne also says she has complete faith that an arrest will be made and another year will not go by. The case remains unsolved after a year, and Leanne says it has made it impossible to move on as they think about it every day.
Leanne says they are starting a non-profit in Tom’s name and hope to offer another reward leading to information in an arrest.
The family is renewing the call for someone to come forward with information.
The family set-up the Tom Wick Murder website over the summer.
