    Some of the real estate websites show the property's legal description toward the bottom of their listing data. You can find these listings freely online with just a general address web browser query. Depends on the address and how easy the information was available to the listing company.

    You can find out when with a simple address search, sometimes you can get it easier than others. Or you can also request property information from the Wisconsin department of revenue. There's a free and open search, look for the link "Real Estate Transfer Search" (eRETR) webpage. You can find this page on the DOR's webpage with the tab "Businesses". Then follow the link "eRETR​" and the Search Wisconsin property data link thereafter. There will be a tab RETR search which drop down, giving you several search options.

    Yes, it was Marathon county, happened at Eau Claire Dells in Aniwa, WI. I am guessing on the dating, she was such a good friend, and we think it was more like 18-20 years, but we wanted to expand in case we were wrong

    Those records are readily available online, on the first page of the serps, I found online obituary publications which allow searches in twenty year increments. You can use a keyword feature to narrow the search as there were more than fifteen pages of results. I searched "Marathon county, WI obituaries" and chose from the top five sources, depending on the information you already have, other sources may work better. I previously searched in a local publication, North Central wis. It shouldn't cost anything, the one I used didn't charge.

    Since you know the location, you can try the crime mapping or recent arrest roster from the local police department, in this case the Dane county sheriffs department, their site mentions how to search and find out about persons in custody.

    It’s helpful if you know where the case is filed, in which court/county. From there you can check with that court’s clerk or online web services that are open to the public, for example Wisconsin’s consolidated court automation programs (CCAP), which is a case management system. That system is open and free. I wouldn't stop looking if there's nothing found through this one. It searches circuit courts (the state's trial courts). You can get to that page by clicking on "Public Records Directory" on the menu to the right, then on the Wisconsin Court Records link after. I don't believe you need to know which county using this search.

    You can request transcripts of your tax returns or tax account online with routine access to IRS records services. When accessing the IRS webpage titled "Routine Access to IRS Records", you will find form 4506 and 4506T, there is a separate option to order transcripts for a view of line by line information and tax account transactions. The transcripts are sent by mail taking from 5 to 10 days. You can also request open case files where you are actively working on a case with an agent.

    The Wisconsin Department of Justice Crime Information Bureau has a webpage which describes their criminal arrest search. Their url may change, so simply look up department of justice for Wisconsin. There is information about arrest records being provided by local law enforcement agencies. The database is the centralized criminal history (CCH) used to obtain 'arrests, arrest charges, prosecution, court findings, sentences, and state correctional system admissions and releases' according to the background check page. The information contained in this database is from local police departments' fingerprint cards. The police departments in Wisconsin are required to submit the arrest fingerprint cards by law under §165.84(1). Arrests without fingerprinting are not shown. You can request the search by mail or online with a link and form on the same page. Takes about a week to get the information. There's a good explanation of why fingerprint records are more reliable than name based searches.

    Looking for the person is different from looking for an arrest warrant. A “people finder” search looks for a person under their name, spouse’s names, past addresses, home ownerships, business ownerships and anything which would turn up a person’s name and address/location. Arrest warrants can be viewed online through police websites (including sheriffs or any law enforcement agency). You will also find them in county or municipal court webpages where warrants lists are published For post convictions, the Wisconsin Department of Corrections show their inmates in custody online.

    Reply:

    Warrants are generally issued by judges/courts, but they can also be found on independent sheriffs (county law enforcement) or police (city level law enforcement) webpages. There are two types of warrants, non custodial warrants and custodial warrants which can be searched. Non custodial warrants are for traffic and municipal violations/citations. Custodial warrants are aimed to lead to an arrest and take the person into custody. Be sure to go to the source of the information, non government sites get their data from government sites, and may or may not be updated.

    Articles outside of the state by news wires can show more information if none are found within the state. You can also find out which department was investigating and look on their site for a press release since this sounds like a substantial story.
