MENASHA, Wis. (WFRV) – Things are slowly getting back to normal at Fritse Park.

Police finished collecting evidence along the Trestle Trail Bridge.

Menasha Police even re-opened the bridge for a short time earlier Monday evening and at least a dozen people took the opportunity to walk and bike the bridge.

But not even half an hour after opening the bridge police did had to close it again after getting word that the parks department wanted to do a thorough inspection and walk through Tuesday morning.

Police say that once the bridge opens sometime Tuesday they want people to continue to use the beautiful space as a way to honor the victims.

And Menasha residents were honoring the victims Monday afternoon at the entrances to the bridge by leaving flowers stuffed animals and other memorials.

Local 5 stopped by the home of the shooter’s ex fiancée to give her the chance to talk about how she’s dealing with this tragedy.

While she did not want to talk Local 5’s Cole Higgins did speak to a neighbor who says there was no indication the couple was having any problems.

“Haylie moved in after college, so her boyfriend was over a lot,” said Alex Stebane. “We’d see them a lot outside, just like, grilling out and like playing games in the yard and stuff like that.” “They seemed pretty normal.”
