Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call the Fond du Lac County Law Enforcement Tip Line at (920) 906-4777. A $500 reward is being offered. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office Detectives Ryan Murphy and Nate LaMotte are leading the investigation and can be contacted at email@example.com
CAMPBELLSPORT – The case of a 7-year-old Campbellsport girl who was shot by an arrow as she walked down a village street has set off an outpouring of support from around the state.
As the search for the shooter continued last week, the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office announced that it was offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the successful resolution of the case.
Now organizations and people from around the state have stepped forward to raise the reward to $10,000.
Aryanna Schneeburg was shot in the back with a hunting arrow about 5 p.m. May 20 as she walked on Main Street in Campbellsport.
She was flown by helicopter to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where surgery was performed to remove the arrow.
Schneeburg was released from the hospital and home Tuesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Sheriff’s investigators returned to Campbellsport Tuesday to canvass the neighborhood where Schneeburg was shot.
“We’re operating on the theory that while it’s possible this was a stray arrow, it’s not probable,” Fond du Lac County Sheriff Mick Fink said, for the first time intimating that the shooting may not have been accidental.
Fink said he hopes the beefed up reward will prompt someone to come forward with information.
The reward fund got a big boost when Daniel Manesis of West Allis called the sheriff and contributed $5,000.
In addition to Manesis, David Moser of West Bend, Doug Paswaters of Campbellsport and Carole Knuppel of Campbellsport each donated $500, Fink said.
The Wisconsin Bow Hunters Association of Clintonville donated $100 and Joe and Dawn Colwin of Campbellsport donated $2,900.
