HUDSON, Wis. -- Hudson Police Chief Dick Trende told the Hudson Star Observer this week some people are refusing to talk with his investigators about Father Ryan Erickson and the O'Connell murder case.

Trende said most of the people contacted have been cooperative and eager to help police in any way possible, but a few have been reluctant to speak with investigators.

Erickson, 31, was found hanged outside the hallway between the rectory and St. Mary's Catholic Church in Hurley on Dec. 19.
