Law enforcement officials investigating the Schaffhausen murder case ask for the public's help to find a laptop with a bag and cell phone belonging to Aaron Schaffhausen, who's accused of murdering his three young daughters in River Falls July 10.

Police believe these items may have been ditched somewhere before Schaffhausen turned himself in. The items are a Sony VAIO laptop with a Targus laptop bag, as well as a cell phone.

Schaffhausen's trial is set to begin April 1 and is anticipated to last four weeks.

Lt. Cathy Borgschatz of the St. Croix County Sheriff's Department said late Nov. 16 that since it is the opening weekend for hunting deer with a gun, there will be a lot of people "out in nature" who could help watch for the important evidence.

Anyone with information about the missing laptop, bag or cell phone should call Sgt. Jon Aubart with the River Falls Police Department at 715-425-0909 or the non-emergency dispatch number for either county.

Pierce County: 715-273-5051

St. Croix County: 715-386-4701.
