   Donald J. Martin, 60 of Bagley, Wi, turned south on Hwy 61 from Circle road. Martin was pulling a goose neck trailer with large round bales of hay. The load was not secure and two of the large round bales of hay fell off in the south bound lane of Hwy 61.
    Robert A Kuhn, 48 of Fennimore, Wi, was traveling south on Hwy 61, when he struck one large bale of hay then traveled into the northbound lane.
   Nathan M. Harris, 42 of Lancaster, Wi, was traveling northbound when Harris and Kuhn collided head on.
   Kuhn was pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Ron Sturmer. Harris was transported by the Lancaster Rescue squad to Grant Regional Health Center, and then later transported to a hospital in Madison. Martin was not involved in the accident and left the area and was located later. This incident is still under investigation.

   Grant County, WI - January 16, 2015 - The Grant County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Grant County Coroner’s office have spent countless hours over the past 2 weeks trying to piece together what occurred at 305 E. Main Street in the Village of Montfort on January 2, 2015. On that date, 6 year old Jaxon Slaight was killed, 8 year old Joseph Slaight was seriously injured and their mother, Morgan Slaight, was seriously injured as well. (see story below) It has been a difficult and challenging investigation.
   The goal of every death investigation, is to determine what occurred, how the person died, and who, if anyone caused the death.
   This investigation was no different.  The detectives spent countless hours interviewing anyone connected to the Slaight family in the Grant & Iowa County area, tracing the whereabouts of Morgan Slaight during the day on January 2nd, as well as looking at all the physical evidence at the scene and studying all potential possibilities to explain what happened.
   On January 14th, Morgan Slaight succumbed to her injuries and as part of the investigation, an autopsy was performed.  After close examination of her injuries, Dr. Corliss, a UW Hospital Forensic Pathologist, determined the injuries were consistent with a self inflicted gunshot wound. Dr. Corliss and Grant County Coroner Ron Sturmer have ruled Morgan’s death a suicide. 
   As a result of autopsy, along with evidence from the Wisconsin Crime Laboratory indicating Morgan had handled the gun, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office is ruling this investigation as a  homicide of 6 year old Jaxon, suicide of 27 year old Morgan and attempted homicide of 8 year old Joseph.
   Currently, Joseph Slaight is showing signs of improvement and although his outcome is still undetermined, there have been some positive signs of healing. We continue to pray for his healing and recovery.
