Hoosier Daddy?

Meet 39 year old Chris Rondeau, Hoosier.

Mr. Rondeau is in custody for the murder of 69 year old Adolph Stegbauer.

Rondeau and Stegbauer argued, and one of them reached for a sword. The other also armed himself, and the two engaged in a swordfight. During the swordfight Rondeau's grandmother Franziska Stegbauer was fatally wounded, although police don't know who inflicted the fatal wound. Rondeau stabbed, hacked or slashed Adolph, who lingered for a few days before dying.

We learn from this story that one of the swords was described as a "World War Two Japanese officer's sword"


Things in Indiana are more complicated than you might have thought.

If there had been a deer carcass involved, it might have been Wisconsin!!!

I wonder if during the swordfight, he continually said "My name is Chris Rondeau. You killed my father. Prepare to die!"?

Or more likely "My name is Chris Rondeau. WE killed my mother. Prepare to die!"

MnMom, if you click the "swordplay" label the other two stories are both from Wisconsin! That's very astute of you...

my parents had a Nazi sword under the buffet in the dining room for a long time. Long story. I think my brother might have it now.

That is kind of a classier crime than we see in Illinois.

"Indiana?" If his last name wasn't French, I would've guessed that we were playing a quick round of "Florida or Germany."
