Plan agreed on to release convicted Waukesha County cop killer


by John Cuoco

WAUKESHA -- Friday afternoon a plan was agreed on in a Waukesha County courtroom to release Alan Randall. Back in 1975, at the age of 16, Randall killed two Summit police officers, Robert "Rocky" Atkins and Wayne Olson.

Randall was ruled insane and has been living in a mental institution for the better part of the last four decades. Most recently the Mendota Mental Health Institute.

The plan agreed on by the court would release Randall, but restrict him from living in Waukesha County. Randall will live in Neenah, WI where he has also been offered a job. As part of the court ruling he will not be able to have any contact with the families involved and will have to wear a GPS monitoring device.

The family and friends of victims said they were happy with the court's decision and that they knew this day was inevitable. They added that they are yet to receive an apology from Randall or any sign of remorse for what he did. Randall will be officially released once the GPS device is attached within the next ten days.
