Ho-Chunk casino focuses on security, helping investigators after homicide

SAUK COUNTY (WKOW) —  A Wisconsin casino is working to help investigators find a killer and make sure their customers feel safe.

A man in his 80’s was found murdered in the parking lot of Ho-Chunk near Wisconsin Dells on Monday, according to officials.

Sauk County Sheriff Chip Meister says security cameras inside the casino helped identify Robert Pulvermacher as a suspect.

It is a startling crime for a local business, but the casino does have security measures in place. Officials say if someone feels concerned about their safety, the security team has always been willing to walk customers out to their cars.

“It’s something that we’ve wanted to offer since we opened up. People, if they don’t feel comfortable walking to their cars, we’re there for them,” said David Abangan, public relations manager for Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells.

The casino’s 24-hour security team will be keeping a close eye on the facility, both inside and out. Security guards and surveillance cameras will be monitoring the casino, as usual.

“We just provide the same level of security that we always do and it’s a safe environment to come and visit,” Abangan told 27 News.

Investigators say Pulvermacher often visits casinos, so Ho-Chunk has shared its surveillance images with other casinos across the state, in hopes of finding him.

The suspect has an extensive criminal history, including a prison escape 20 years ago. Anyone who sees Pulvermacher should call 911.
