On April 7, 2020, shortly after 8:30 a.m., the Marathon County Sheriff’s Office, Wisconsin State Patrol and Stratford Police Department responded to a call of a stabbing at the above listed address. Two males were found stabbed, one was deceased on scene and the other was transported to a local hospital where he later died from injuries he sustained from the stabbing. He was pronounced deceased the same day at 6:05p.m. The suspect, Brandon Dwayne Noll, DOB of 7/8/1997 fled the scene in a vehicle. He crashed that vehicle in the City of Marshfield and quickly stole a vehicle from a nearby business. He later led authorities on a high speed chase after being located in the Village of Spencer.
