Man charged in Green Bay teen's 1998 homicide

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Brown County authorities have announced a break in a cold-case homicide, charging an Oconto Falls man in the death of a teenager 15 years ago. 

Green Bay police announced charges Friday against 52-year-old Peter Hanson. Investigators say at least one other person may have been involved. 

He's accused in the death of 19-year-old Chad McLean of Green Bay, who disappeared in 1998 after a night of partying. His body was found a month later beneath a bridge. 

a WLUK-TV report says Hanson has been in Oconto County Jail since November on unrelated charges. He's expected to make an initial appearance next week on a charge of being party to first-degree intentional homicide. 

Defense attorney John Wallace says it's too early to comment on the case.
