Dan Lederman might not make the David Horowitz bushwah fest that he’s hosting in the shadow of the McGovern Day program and fundraiser for the South Dakota Democratic Party in Sioux Falls Saturday. The SDGOP may be preoccupied with the murder investigation happening at his Iowa City bail bonds office:
The death of a man found dead in an Iowa City bail bonds office — identified by friends as a local bail bondsman — is being treated as a homicide.
Iowa City police responded to Lederman Bail Bonds, 518 S. Capitol St., at 11:11 a.m. Sunday after a body was found inside. On Monday, police said the man — who they are not yet identifying — had “multiple sources of trauma.”
“Based on the evidence thus far discovered at 518 South Capitol St., and the known circumstances surrounding the death of the subject, the department’s Investigations Unit is treating this case as a homicide,” the police department said in a news release [Lee Hermiston, “Death of Iowa City Bail Bondsman Being Treats as Homicide,” Cedar Rapids Gazette, 2017.04.24].
That latest press release from the Iowa City PD says police are seeking information “particularly between the hours of 9 p.m. Saturday, April 22 and 11:11 a.m., Sunday April 23….”
Sioux City lawyer Brian Vakulskas has told the Cedar Rapids Gazette that the victim was his friend 34-year-old Jonathan J. Wieseler, who used to live in Sioux City and whom Lederman Bail Bonds lists (misspelled) as its agent in Iowa City. Vakulskas credited Wieseler as a “segment producer” of his “Having Read That” book review show on Sioux City radio station KSCJ.
