John Roemer was elected to the Juneau County Circuit Court for the first time in 2004. He was re-elected in 2010 and 2016, but resigned in August 2017 due to his wife’s health problems.
Before being elected to the bench in 2004, Roemer was one of Juneau County’s two assistant district attorneys, defeating his former employer, Judge Dennis C. Schuh.
Former Wisconsin Judge John Roemer was shot in his own home, and his death ‘appears to be a targeted act,’ according to authorities.
Juneau County Special Tactics and Response Team discovered a 56-year-old suspect in the basement with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the State Attorney General. In what investigators believe was a deliberate attack, a former Wisconsin judge was bound and shot to death in his New Lisbon home on Friday morning.
According to Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul, law enforcement was summoned to the home of former Juneau County Judge John Roemer on allegations of an armed individual and two rounds fired in a residence. Authorities discovered Roemer, 68, strapped to a chair with zip ties and fatally shot, after dispatching a SWAT squad to the house.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was the first to publish Roemer’s identity, as well as details on a rumored “kill list” that included other high-profile targets like Wisconsin Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “This, as I mentioned before, does appear to be a targeted act and the individual who is a suspect appears to have had other targets as well. It appears to be related to the judicial system,” Kaul said at a news conference.
“Those who may have been other targets have been notified of that, but we are not aware of any active threat to individuals,” Kaul added. “If we become aware of any specific ongoing threat, we will certainly notify people when we are aware of that.”
Juneau County Special Tactics and Response Team found the suspect, only identified as a 56-year-old male, in the basement with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Attorney General. “Law enforcement began life-saving measures, and the individual was transported to a medical facility. A firearm was recovered at the scene,” the initial statement said. “This incident appears to be a targeted act.”
There is no active threat to the public, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice, and the incident appears to be related to a previous court matter. The inquiry is being led by the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation, which is still reviewing evidence before turning the case over to the Juneau County District Attorney.
