Sheriff Brad Hardel spoke about law enforcement’s appreciation of Isherwood’s hard work as an assistant district attorney.
He noted that Isherwood came out to what investigators suspected was the scene of a homicide near Clintonville and spent the entire day learning about the case and assisting officers with paperwork and warrants.
