DANE COUNTY, WI. (THECOUNT) — Angelina Ruesch, of Hartland, Wisconsin, has been identified as the suspect arrested after a body was found inside her vehicle during a Dane County traffic stop on Monday.

“Angel” Ruesch, 28, was arrested after displaying a gun and ignoring commands from law enforcement. At some point, authorities discovered a 34-year-old Kaukauna man dead inside Ruesch’s car.


According to Dane County sheriff’s office, Ruesch was arrested Monday shortly before the body was discovered. No details have been released about the cause of death, although authorities say it appears the person died in some other location.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office says that officers originally responded to a gas station about a woman asking people for money and a ride. Ruesch reportedly showed a handgun and refused to follow commands. Authorities used a taser but that was reportedly ineffective, reports WeAreGreenBay.

The suspect is tentatively charged with recklessly endangering safety, resisting arrest while armed, disorderly conduct while armed and carrying a concealed weapon.
