Columbia County Authorities Asking Public’s Help In Death Investigation

(Leeds) Columbia County authorities are asking the public’s help with a death investigation. Keith Wolf of rural Poynette was shot on September 27th when he went to investigate a noise he heard coming from the basement. His wife called 911 around 9:20pm from the Town of Leeds residence. She told investigators that the 35-year-old grabbed a gun before investigating the disturbance and then she found him dead at the bottom of the stairs. Sheriff Roger Brandner says his office is treating the death as a homicide. He is asking anyone who was on Bradley Road that night between 8:30pm and 10pm to contact his office. Brandner is also hoping to talk with anyone who knew Wolf and-or had contact with him in the weeks leading up to his death. Investigators want to know if the public saw anyone walking on roadways in the area or any suspicious vehicles either driving in the area or parked. Specifically, they are wanting to speak with the person driving a light-colored SUV or truck with a loud exhaust that would have been on Bradley Road on the 27th around 9pm. The sheriff says you may not think what you saw was suspicious, but they would nonetheless like to gather that information. It is believed the victim in this homicide was targeted and Brandner says there is no evidence or information at this time to suggest that this was a random attack. Nonetheless, he says the public should remain vigilant at all times and will continue to see law enforcement active in the community as the investigation continues. Information should be directed to the Columbia County Crime Stoppers line or to Detective Tim Schultz.
