Recall election today for Price Co. sheriff


By Wake Up Wisconsin Team

PRICE COUNTY (WAOW) -- Price County residents head to the polls today.

They'll vote on whether Price County Sheriff Wally Krenzke will keep his job.

He's being recalled after opponents say he mishandled a missing persons case.

Back in March, 70-year-old Deanne Breen wandered away from her rural Park Falls home. The woman, who suffered from dementia, was found dead less than a day later. The coroner determined she died of hypothermia.

Last month, Sheriff Krenzke told Newsline 9 that he's ok with the recall because he says it's the people of his county's right.
