Suspect in Homicide of Retired Judge John Roemer Has Died

-

His body remained on life-support until today to allow for organ donation.

Douglas K. Uhde, the man suspected of shooting and killing retired Judge John Roemer last week has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

On July 7th, the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) said,

“Today, Juneau County Medical Examiner notified DCI that Uhde was declared deceased. He was declared legally brain-dead on June 4, 2022, at 9:41 a.m. His body remained on life-support until today to allow for organ donation.

This incident appears to be a targeted act. There is no immediate danger to the public.

Judge Roemer’s family requests privacy and asks that media refrain from contacting them at this time.”


John Roemer, the retired Juneau County, Wisconsin judge, was shot and killed in a targeted attack in his home located near the city of New Lisbon, Friday morning.

Douglas Uhde was found in the basement of the judge’s home and was transported to a hospital in critical condition with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
