 Woman arrested in 2001 murder

A Beaver Dam woman was arrested today for a murder nearly 13 years old. Leah Waldhart is now 38 years old. She's been arrested for her involvement in the death of her boyfriend, Curtis Wylesky, who died April 23, 2001. Wylesky was 42 when he was found in a ditch outside Fall River, near his truck. The Columbia County Sheriff's Department says he died of injuries, but have not specified what kind of injuries.

Wylesky and Waldhart were living together at the time.

The case had gone cold, but was re-opened in July of 2013 after investigators re-examined the evidence.

From the Columbia County Sheriff's Department:

"The investigation in this matter continues and it is believed that there still are individuals in the public that have more information about this homicide. It is Sheriff Richards’ hope that with the arrest of Leah Waldhart, those individuals will feel more comfortable in providing additional information into this investigation."
