Okay, so there is an "I" in I-Team. But don't be fooled. There's more team than meets the eye. There is my producer, Steve Davis; 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.

    Freudian slip: Therapist jailed for sexual relationship with a patient

    KENOSHA (WITI) — Hippocrates warned against it. Freud condemned it. But sex between therapists and their patients still happens from time to time, and a rather dramatic case in Kenosha demonstrates why Wisconsin state law considers it a crime. To say that Kristin Marchese failed to respect professional boundaries with a patient is indisputable. To assume she should have known better is an understatement. “There are laws in place for a reason,” said Tracey Braun, Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney, […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI)- A Milwaukee chiropractor claims to have cracked the code into an untapped part of the human brain. He’s developed a technique that he says will shift the course of humanity. All you need is a desire to believe. And a lot of money. For about $2,000, you can have the technique performed on you. For another $14,000, you can learn how to master it yourself.

    Federal government looks into controversial guardrail device installed on roads across the country

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — New crash tests start next week on a controversial guardrail device. It is already installed on roads across the country. The Federal Highway Administration estimates there are more than 200,000 of the devices, including an unknown number in Wisconsin. In October, a federal jury in Texas found that Trinity Highway Products defrauded the government by failing to disclose design changes to its ET-Plus guardrail end terminals — one of two guardrail energy absorbing devices approved for use […]

    FOX6 investigation prompts suspension of guardrail safety device

    MILWAUKEE (WITI)–  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is officially suspending its use of one particular model of a  safety device that’s attached to thousands of guardrails across the state.

    ‘Hothead’ landlord piles up violations while tenants pay the price

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — He is one of Milwaukee’s most prominent inner city landlords. And a FOX6 investigation finds the system that’s supposed to hold him accountable is falling short. Our investigation finds the king of this rental empire is both elusive and abusive. And some of the city’s poorest residents are paying the price. Many of the people who rent homes or apartments from Elijah Mohammad Rashaed have never met their landlord.  And when they find their homes infested with […]

It happened to a 97-year-old Oak Creek woman — and it could happen to you. For 40 long years, a home in Oak Creek was housing a secret. “It was all we could afford and I like it right […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A four-month-old baby dies in northwest Milwaukee, and early indications are that the infant was co-sleeping with his mother. Details are limited until an autopsy is complete, but a FOX6 investigation recently dug deep into the issue of babies dying in unsafe sleeping situations. Experts say putting your baby to sleep safely is as simple as knowing your ABCs. Babies should be alone, on their back, and in a crib. “No pillows or blankets or other soft […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A Wisconsin lawmaker wants to make sure that parents who share a bed with a baby get tested for alcohol and drugs if the baby dies or is seriously harmed. It’s the latest development in a controversial effort to criminalize “co-sleeping while intoxicated.” Over the past three months, the FOX6 Investigators have reviewed the case files of dozens of Milwaukee area babies who died while sharing a sleeping space with an adult.

    School district spends staggering $167K in lawsuit; Should taxpayers pay attorney fees?

    FREDONIA (WITI) — A small town school board blows six figures on a simple lawsuit. Now, a judge has to decide whether taxpayers should pay the other guy’s attorney fees. Mom always said “money doesn’t grow on trees,” so when school officials in the small town of Fredonia let a garden-variety lawsuit grow out of control, it was taxpayers like Carol Murphy who had to foot the bill. “They should just drop it.
