Dying MN Woman Called 911 to ID Shooter
( Fitchburg, WI – Wheeler News ) Police say an injured Minnesota woman called 911 before she died and identified the man who shot her last week as her brother-in-law, a former sheriff’s deputy in Wisconsin.
Police in the Madison suburb of Fitchburg say Kacee Tollefsbol called 911 around 1 p.m. Friday and said Andy Steele had shot her in the back. When police arrived at Steele’s home they also found the body of his 39-year-old wife, Ashlee, who was fatally shot.
Police say the 38-year-old Tollefsbol, of Lake Elmo, Minnesota, also told a detective at the hospital before she died that her brother-in-law had shot her. Steele is being treated for injuries sustained in an apparent suicide attempt.
A funeral for the two women will be held Friday in Stillwater, Minnesota – where the two grew up. According to her obituary, Kacee married Mark Tollefsbol just four weeks ago.
