Police siren lights light bar squad car

Nicholas Druecke has been identified as the man who died after being stabbed in a Mayville home Sunday.

Mayville Police Chief James Ketchem made the announcement in a press release Thursday. He said the police department could not release much information due to the “active, ongoing investigation.”

According to an earlier press release, police accompanied EMS to a residence in the 1000 block of Horicon Street for a call at 6:33 a.m. Sunday reporting a person with lacerations. After arriving at the scene, the police department discovered a man lying on the couch in the residence. He was conscious and said he was bleeding. Cuts were observed on his abdomen and chest.

The man was transported by Mayville EMS to Aurora Summit Medical Center in Oconomowoc, where he died from his injuries, according to police.

A 29-year-old man, whom Ketchem said was the homeowner, was located in an upstairs bedroom. The man was found to have cuts on his hands and forearm area. He was transported to Beaver Dam Community Hospital by Theresa EMS for medical treatment.

Police have not released the name of the homeowner. Ketchem said the stabbing was an isolated incident and there is no danger to the public, but has not said if anyone is in custody or if the homeowner is a suspect.
