Wisconsin police have charged a man suspected of a 1992 double homicide.

Tony Haase, now 51, is accused of killing both the daughter of the man who was involved in a snowmobile crash with Haase's father 15 years prior and her boyfriend. Waupaca County Sheriff's Office has since charged Haase with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.

Tanna Togstad and Timothy Mumbrue were found stabbed to death in their farmhouse in rural Waupaca County. Togstad was stabbed once in the chest, and Mumbrue was stabbed multiple times, with their pet dog also stabbed to death.

After giving a DNA sample during a traffic stop last month, police discovered Haase was a “major male contributor” to the fluids found on the scene, according to a police report. Haase admitted to the decades-old murders Thursday after initially denying involvement.

Haase then admitted to investigators that the murders happened after he'd been bar hopping alone on March 20, 1992. As he became drunk, Haase thought about his father, who had died in a snowmobile race after a crash with Togstad's father when Haase was 7 years old.


Haase admitted there was a scuffle between him and Mumbrue the evening of the murders when he arrived at the couple's home.

The suspect explained he didn't tell the police right away because “I didn’t want it to sound like I had it planned."


Haase was booked into the Waupaca County jail Thursday and appeared in court Friday, when bond was set to $2 million cash. He will be back in court on Tuesday.

Norwalk Man Charged With Attacking Youth Football Coach With Helmet

A Fairfield County man has been charged with allegedly attacking a youth football coach with a helmet.

The incident took place in Norwalk at 1 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 2 at the Brien McMahon High School field during a game.

According to Sgt. Sofia Gulino, of the Norwalk Police, the assault took place on the field during the game.

Following an investigation, Norwalk Police arrested Christopher Polk, age 32, of Norwalk on Tuesday, Oct. 4, Gulino said.

When police were dispatched to the field on Sunday, they located the unconscious man laying on the field, along with a large crowd of adult and child game spectators, Gulino said.

Multiple witnesses came forward, identifying Polk as the suspect, and providing a description of him, she added.

According to witnesses, Polk had used a football helmet to strike the victim in the head and was last seen walking away from the area, police said. 

Paramedics were immediately called to the scene and transported the victim to Norwalk Hospital for treatment of his serious injuries.

Officers were unable to locate Polk and a warrant was prepared for his arrest, Gulino said.

"Polk was provided with opportunities to turn himself in but refused to comply," she added. 

Investigators of the Special Services Division received information about where Polk was living but attempts to contact him went unanswered, police said. 

Surveillance was established in the area and Polk was taken into custody on Thursday.

The victim in this incident has since been released from Norwalk Hospital and is recovering from his injuries, Gulino said. 

Polk was charged with:

  • Assault
  • Risk of injury to a minor
  • Breach of peace

He is being held on a $75,000 bond.
