"The Sheriff's Office continues to investigate this matter and has made no determination as to what occurred in Montfort on January 2, 2105," said Sheriff Nate Dreckman.

"The investigators continue following up on leads and await the processing of some evidence."

Family report that Joseph Slaight is still in a coma and on a ventilator, according to the Dodgeville Chronicle.


The CBS Station in Madison, Channel 3000, said deputies have not ruled out a murder-suicide but are keeping all possibilities open. They have said they don't believe drugs were involved in the shooting.
