A suspect has been arrested in connection with the Sept. 5 homicide of Oconomowoc resident Christina Schuster. Schuster was found dead Sept. 5 in her apartment at 1211 W. Wisconsin Ave., from a gunshot wound to the head.
On Friday, Sept. 9, the Milwaukee Police Department located the suspect known to the victim in the city of Milwaukee; they took that person into custody on local warrants without incident.
Oconomowoc Police Chief Dave Beguhn previously said officials thought Schuster knew whoever killed her. Milwaukee police said the person they arrested was known to the victim.
According to Beguhn, investigators from both Oconomowoc and the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department interviewed the suspect. He will be transferred to the Waukesha County Jail pending a review of the case for possible charges by the Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office.
Beguhn said the suspect’s name is being withheld pending the issuance of any charges.
The police chief refused to comment on whether the suspect was found in the vehicle missing from the victim’s residence.
“No additional details can be released at this time,” he said.
Schuster is survived by her mother Eileen Schuster, her brothers John, Steve and Andrew Schuster and her sisters Ruth and Monique Schuster.
She was preceded in death by her father Herbert Schuster.
A Celebration of her life will be on Friday, Sept. 16, from 3 to 5 p.m. all to take place Pagenkopf Funeral Home in Oconomowoc.
Schuster had a degree from MATC and she worked at Opportunities and Good Will Industries both in Oconomowoc.
