Fitchburg police are seeking the most serious charge in the murder of a 16-year-old this week, “The Fitchburg Police Department has referred charges to the Dane County District Attorney’s office of First Degree Intentional Homicide and Robbery with Force. K’Andre Frazier had recently arrived in the area after living in a different location over the past several years.
Police Chief Tom Blatter tells us the motive for Frazier’s attack on Lorenzo McKittrick, “The motive was robbery and it was personal items that were taken from him, not drugs. The items that were taken are still important in this investigation that remains very active.”
McKittrick died of blunt force trauma. Police say he and the suspect did know one another, but they didn’t elaborate.
