Lincoln Co. fire could be linked to murder investigation


The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office is looking for any information about a fire that may be related to a murder investigation.

Sheriff's officials want to speak to any witnesses who were traveling on County Road M or Wegner Road between 4:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. on Friday, April 26, 2013.

Lincoln County authorities say this fire could be connected to the investigation into the murder of Anita Bucki, who was reported missing that same day.

Her husband, Mark Bucki, has been charged in her death.

Investigators say he told authorities he talked to his wife at their home on Wegner Road in the Town of Corning before she went missing.

Anita Bucki's body was found in May in Taylor County.

Authorities are specifically interested in speaking to anyone who saw a big fire, possibly from a burn barrel at a home in that area.

The sheriff's office says the fire would have lit up the early morning sky.

If you have any information on this case, please contact the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office at 715-536-6272, or contact Crime Stoppers of Lincoln County at 715-536-3726.
