A man arrested for the death of his live-in girlfriend in Brown County has been released from jail. Douglass Detrie was freed from jail on Friday.
This comes after prosecutors say they’re not confident they have enough evidence to tie him to the beating death of Nicole VanderHeyden.
VanderHeyden’s body was found May 21 in a field near Bellevue. Two days later, Detrie was arrested in connection with her death.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Department last Friday held a news conference asking the public for more help cementing their timeline of events leading up to VanderHeyden’s death.
