Okay, so there is an “I” in I-Team. But don’t be fooled. There’s a lot more team than meets the eye. There is, of course, my co-investigator Meghan Dwyer. Our producers, Steve Davis and LeeAnn Watson. Our extraordinary editor, Dave Michuda. And some of the best photojournalists in the business.

As for the “I” – Well, I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri (Pattonville High School). I got my bachelors degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. And I’ve worked in both radio and television in Missouri, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

I love snow skiing, soccer, Texas Hold ‘Em, the St. Louis Cardinals, and ice cold beer (not necessarily in that order).

I have a passion for my work. But there is no greater joy in my life than being a dad.

    FREDONIA —  It’s the lawsuit that won’t seem to go away.  And the bill for taxpayers keeps on climbing.

After spending more than $150,000 of taxpayer money chasing after an $8,300 dollar repair bill, the Northern Ozaukee School District finally dropped its own case last year. So why were they back in court […]

    “They’re like bandits!” In the middle of the night, towing company takes cars, shocks drivers with new fees

    MILWAUKEE — In the middle of the night, cars are disappearing from private parking lots all over Milwaukee. They’re not being stolen. They’re being towed away. One company is towing far more cars from private property than anyone else. And their bill could leave you with a bad case of sticker shock. $380 is a lot of money. For that price, you could: Buy a pair of tickets to see the Packers host the Chiefs at Lambeau Field in September […]

    KENOSHA — A local optician is under arrest — one day after an eye-opening FOX6 investigation. Former patients accuse Lee Hagopian of doing eye exams without a license. FOX6 News has learned this isn’t his first run-in with the law. The sign on the door says walk-ins welcome, but when FOX6’s Bryan Polcyn walked into Eye Xamz in Kenosha, Lee Hagopian walked him right back out. Bryan Polcyn: “I’d like to talk with you about practicing without a license.” “That’s not […]

FOX6 Investigator Bryan Polcyn has a word of caution before you make your next eye appointment. A local optician is accused of doing eye exams without a license. The first complaint came in 21 years ago. He’s still in business today. And when it comes to being a threat to the public, FOX6’s investigation finds there may be more […]

    IRS still keeping costly secret from some taxpayers, victims of identity theft: “I will never give up”

    PRINCETON — It’s been two years since FOX6 Investigators exposed a federal law that prohibits the IRS from telling you if someone else is using your social security number to file their taxes. Now, a bipartisan effort is finally underway in Congress to change that, thanks in part to relentless hounding by a husband and wife from a small Wisconsin town. But will it be enough? This is not the first time Robert and Debi Guenterberg have welcomed TV cameras […]

    “You will address me as Master:” Wauwatosa teen tells harrowing story of ‘sextortion’

    WAUWATOSA — All she wanted to do was flirt. A Wauwatosa teenager took a selfie and sent it to someone she’d never met. That photo quickly became a tool for sexual blackmail. And what happened to this teenager could very easily happen to you or your child. The 17-year-old Wauwatosa girl exposed more than her private body parts. She exposed herself to a powerful new form of digital extortion. Now, she’s telling her story so you and your children know what’s really at stake […]

    “You have 30 seconds to take that towel off:” Prosecutors say ‘sextortion’ is a growing problem

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — What would you do to keep nude images of yourself from going public? For a growing number of people, the answer appears to be — whatever it takes. And that is giving rise to a new and disturbing category of crime, commonly known as ‘sextortion.’ It’s a form of blackmail that usually involves threats to release sexual images of a victim unless the victim pays money or performs sexual favors. It’s happening to adults and kids in […]

(WITI) — Taking aim at identity thieves: Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) plans to introduce a bill before Congress on Wednesday, May 13th that would require the IRS to notify you if your social security number has been compromised. The bill comes two years after FOX6 Investigators exposed a system that was protecting criminals instead of taxpayers. “Our federal agencies have known for years that this was going on,” Debi Guenterberg of Princeton, Wisconsin said. Ever since identity thieves […]

    Working the system: Bill would take “two strikes, you’re out” approach to unemployment fraud

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The unemployment insurance fund is supposed to be a safety net for people who want to work, but can’t find a job. But a FOX6 investigation finds that many of the people defrauding the unemployment system actually have jobs. They just claim they don’t, so they keep collecting benefits. In other words, they are literally working the system. In order to keep a roof over his own head, Nick Brzezinski repairs and installs them for others. For more […]

    “Leave me alone!” Tow truck driver refuses to talk about questionable towing agreement

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — He’s back! He’s a sketchy tow truck driver with a nasty temper. And he’s still taking advantage of a new state law that cuts police out of the towing process. When FOX6 News first exposed this problem back in February, West Milwaukee police ordered the towing company at the center of the story to close up shop. So they did. A few days later, they were back in business in the city of Milwaukee. And, apparently, up […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — You know the old saying, ‘You can’t fight city hall.’ A Milwaukee woman says it’s even harder to fight the Department of Veterans Affairs. Andrea Vossekuil is convinced that her father died of a disease connected to his exposure to Agent Orange, a toxic defoliant used by American troops in Vietnam. For the last 11 years, she and her mother have been trying to prove it. The Veterans Administration has asked them to get ‘more evidence’ time […]
