The Lafayette County District Attorney’s
Office and the Lafayette County Sheriff’s
Department say no charges will be
filed in the death of Aaron Saalsaa of
Argyle back on March 31st.
According to Lafayette County Sheriff
Scott Pedley, autopsy results from the
Wisconsin Department of Pathology
and Laboratory Medicine at the
University of Wisconsin excludes the
presence of brain trauma to the head
of Aaron Saalsaa. The autopsy also
shows the bleeding in the brain of
Aaron Saalsaa at the time of his death,
was similar to that of a cerebral aneurysm.
In addition, the report describes a lack
of any physical evidence connecting
the fight on March 31st between Daniel
and Aaron Saalsaa with Aaron’s death.
Aaron Saalsaa had no facial injuries,
and the cause of the brain hemorrhage
he suffered is unknown.
The Sheriff’s Department Report shows
the two brothers got into a fight while
they were drunk, early on the morning
of March 31st. While their brother
Robert was trying to break-up the
fight between Aaron and Daniel,
Aaron fell. That caused Daniel and
Robert to fall on top of Aaron.
Aaron Saalsaa died shortly afterward
Sheriff Pedley calls the death of
Aaron Saalsaa tragic. But he says
there’s no factual, scientific, or legal
basis to conclude that his death was
the result of any criminal act.
That’s why no criminal charges
will be filed.
