Man suspected of false imprisonment found dead at hotel

Officials: 28-year-old in stolen truck tops 100mph during chase

Police said a man wanted for holding a woman against her will has fatally shot himself at a hotel in Grafton.

Saukville police said the suspect broke into the woman’s home during an attempted burglary Wednesday and forced her at gunpoint to drive around with him. The woman was eventually released and called authorities.

Police in nearby Grafton said they tracked the man’s cellphone and found him at the Hampton Inn along Interstate 43 about 6:30 p.m. Officials said when officers tried to enter the room, the suspect fired his gun. Police evacuated the hotel and secured the area.

Authorities said officers entered the room several hours later after failing to make contact with the man and found him dead of a self-inflicted gunshot.
