WAUKESHA - A strange find at a solemn place.
Confidential police secrets are thrown out in a Waukesha Cemetery trash can. The binders belong to Chicago Police and they contain information on some of that city’s most wanted.
Even Prairie Home Cemetery Manager David Brenner concedes this find was unusual. Each Binder was stenciled with the words Chicago Police.
“The contents had what looked to be a publication of some sorts that said police confidential,” said Brenner.
Cemetery staff found the confidential documents in a trash bin on Tuesday. There were eight or nine large binders with information that is 10 or more years old.
Brenner says it looked like information about criminals or wanted people.
Brenner: It didn't look terribly confidential to me, to be honest with you.
Benson asked: But odd don't you think?
Brenner: Very odd.
Waukesha Police confirm they are investigating what appeared to be daily police bulletins or blotters marked confidential.
Brenner believes the police document could have been dumped anywhere. But like police; he too wants to know, why here?
“Probably someone was here and saw a garbage can and dropped it off. I don’t think it’s much more than that, said Brenner.
Chicago Police say the documents are old reference material that do not include case reports or sensitive material.
Waukesha Police are asking people to call them if they have any information about this strange case.
