Bones Found On Waldo Property Not That Of Bobby Joe Fritz

The FBI says bone fragments found in a man’s yard in Sheboygan County are not those of Bobby Joe Fritz, who vanished from Campbellsport in 1983 when he was five years old. Sheboygan County sheriff’s deputies recently asked the FBI to do advanced D-N-A testing on four small bones dug up in 1990 from the home of the late Michael Menzer. He was long suspected of abducting Bobby Jo and burying the boy at his property in Waldo. Menzer was never charged with those crimes before he died in 1990, while serving a 40-year sentence for killing two stepsons in a fire that destroyed the Waldo Mill. Investigators thought they could find Bobby Joe’s skeleton on Menzer’s land — so they dug it up after he died but found only four small bone fragments plus some decayed children’s clothes. That clothing is now being retested.
