Cottage Grove death investigation continues


Police were dispatched to Timothy and Wendy LaFrance's Cottage Grove home numerous times in recent years.

There were medical calls, welfare checks and requests to help with family disputes, but police said they had no reason to suspect anything unusual when Timothy LaFrance refused assistance after officers were dispatched to the home last Wednesday.
