Appleton cops inspect bar plumbing in murder caseSubmitted: 03/09/2014
Story By Associated Press

APPLETON - Law enforcement officials say they have exhausted all efforts to recover a handgun thought to be used in the shooting of a 25-year-old man in an Appleton nightclub.

That includes taking apart some of the club's plumbing system.

Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider tells Post-Crescent Media (http://post.cr/1kFLfi0 ) they will keep following up on leads on the gun's whereabouts but they've so far pursued it as far as they could.

Chong Lee is accused of shooting Joshua Richards at Luna Lounge Dec. 8.

According to court records, a friend told police Lee ran to a nearby bar and flushed the gun down the toilet.

The bar's manager, Phil Moore, says police inspected the sewage storage pit and didn't find the gun.
