Milwaukee man charged in 2013 death of Kelly Dwyer
MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee prosecutors have filed charges against a man suspected in the 2013 death of a 27-year-old woman.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office said Monday 42-year-old Kris Zocco has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide, hiding a corpse, and strangulation and suffocation.
Authorities say Kelly Dwyer was last seen entering Zocco’s apartment on Oct. 11, 2013. Surveillance cameras recorded Dwyer going into her boyfriend’s lakefront apartment 19 months ago, but she was never seen leaving.
Investigators found Dwyer’s body in May 2015 in a field in Jefferson County.
Zocco is serving an 18-year sentence for possession of child pornography. An attorney for Zocco is not listed in courts records.
Zocco, Dwyer’s boyfriend, was a person of interest in her disappearance. Authorities found the child porn on his computer during the investigation into Dwyer’s disappearance.
