A Brown County man has been arrested in connection with a body found in Bellevue over the weekend. Captain David Konrath of the Brown County Sheriff’s Department said the body found in a field on Hoffman Road on Saturday is that of 31-year-old Nicole Vanderheyden of Ledgeview.
On Monday, investigators searched the area of a home on Berkley Road in Ledgeview. Vanderheyden shared the home with her boyfriend, 34-year-old Douglass Detrie, who was arrested at his parent’s home Monday. Investigators are recommending charges of first degree intentional homicide.
Konrath said Vanderheyden’s injuries were substantial but would not reveal cause of death. The Green Bay Area Public School District confirmed Tuesday that Vanderheyden was a substitute teacher at the elementary and middle school level.
