DODGE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A convicted murderer has died at the Dodge Correctional Institution.
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Department reports Thomas J. Cox was serving a life sentence for killing Camille Bailey in 1992.
Witnesses say Cox walked into the city office building where the victim worked, pulled her out of a vault where she was hiding and shot her in a break room. He was arrested after being shot 9 times in a gun battle with police. Two officers were wounded in the same battle.
Bailey had broken up with Cox about three weeks before the shooting.
After the shooting, city leaders in Milwaukee decided to increase security at City Hall.
