The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday, November 9th identified the man who died after jumping into a retention pond following a chase in Franklin. He has been identified as 25-year-old Alton Simpson of Rosedale, New York. It happened Saturday afternoon, November 4th. The incident began with a fraud investigation at a store in Franklin. The suspect fled officers in a car, crashed and dove into a pond. “Probably within only two inches from my mask I could see. That water was probably in the mid-40s,” said Foeckler. Despite those obstacles, Foeckler was able to locate Simpson and hand him off to paramedics within two minutes.
