Wausau Daily Herald Hie photo salutes and flags will be in order this Man who confessed to be charged in slaying STEVENS POINT (AP) A prosecutor says she is preparing to charge a man who has told authorities he shot a man found dead on a Waupaca County potato farm May 19. Sheriffs in two counties have said the 34-year-old man, taken into custody in an unrelated case, confessed to killing Tod W. Anderson, 40, last fall. No murder charges had been filed as of Thursday. Portage County District Attorney Susan Lynch said she would charge the man with hiding a corpse to conceal a crime. An initial court appearance was expected Tuesday. Circuit Judge John Finn ordered the man held on a $5,000 cash bond pending charges. Investigators have said they believe Anderson was killed in Shawano County, his body was taken to Portage County for a few hours and then it was dumped in an irrigation pond in Waupaca County, where a farm worker discovered it. The man confessed to the killing because "it's something he wanted to get off his chest," Portage County Sheriff Ron Borski said Thursday. Borski said he was satisfied the suspect acted alone in Anderson's death. Court records showed Anderson and the man in custody both formerly lived in a Salvation Army homeless shelter in Stevens Point The suspect, who moved to Cud-ahy in December after living in Stevens Point for two years, was jailed earlier this week on warrants accusing him of writing bad checks. Records in Portage County also showed the man who admitted the shooting had restraining orders issued against him in 1993 by a landlord who evicted him and a former girlfriend. He also had been arrested in 1992 for transporting an uncased weapon in a motor vehicle and for driving while intoxicated, the documents showed. 'Unsolved Mysteries' segment gives hope to missing man's wife CLINTONVILLE (AP) Nationwide publicity on NBC's "Unsolved Mysteries" has provided a number of new leads in the case of a missing Clintonville businessman who disappeared nine months ago. "This is the key to finding Craig," Christine Reinhard said. Her husband, fish farmer Craig Williamson, was last seen Aug. 30 while on a business trip to Colorado Springs, Colo. His credit cards were found in El Paso, Texas, and his rental car in Juarez, Mexico. Police suspected foul play and initiated a possible homicide investigation. Few leads have been reported. Convinced her husband was alive but suffering from amnesia, Reinhard initiated her own manhunt, focusing on the Pacific Northwest, where her husband was raised. An 11-minute segment on his disappearance aired Wednesday on "Unsolved Mysteries." "I really believe that the leads we get subsequent to the show being on last night are the leads that are going to be important." Christine Reinhard On Thursday afternoon, Reinhard said the broadcast prompted several calls from people who said they may have seen Williamson. She said she was sending copies of his picture to some callers. "I really believe that the leads we get subsequent to the show being on last night are the leads that are going to be important," she said.
