New Details in Death Investigation of Nicolet Girls

Father of one of the victims thought was was house-sitting for her mother at time of crash.

While friends and family try to cope with the loss of , investigators have discovered new information surrounding the accident that ended the lives of two 15-year-old Nicolet students early Saturday morning.

A Milwaukee County medical examiner's report released Monday said Ludowise-Fischer had last spoken to her father just before 10 p.m. Saturday, according to the Journal Sentinel. She was supposed to be house-sitting in Brown Deer for her mother, who was not home at the time.

"The two (Fischer and her father) were texting each other at midnight. She told him that she was not with anyone and was just at home," the newspaper quoted the medical examiner's report as saying.

The report also said Geren's mother told investigators Geren had "experimented socially" with alcohol, however the toxicology reports are still pending, and police have not supplied any additional information at this time.

She also told investigators that she had believed Geren and Ludowise-Fischer hadn't hung out in over one year, according to the Journal Sentinel story.

The two girls were driving along Good Hope Road when a River Hills officer noticed they had a tail light out. When he tried to pull them over, they took off Glendale police said.

After driving a few short blocks, the girls lost control of their vehicle and crashed into a telephone pole at the corner of Good Hope Road and Seneca Road. Police say the girls died instantly.

Amid the remaining broken glass, notes to Halee and Jenni are carved into a tree and many bouquets of flowers are lined up along the trunk of the tree. At least a few candles are kept continually burning and notes have been scrawled onto the back of the stop sign at the site.

"You will be missed. Stay golden, stay classy," one note said.

Geren was on the school gymnastics team and Ludowise-Fischer was on the principal's advisory team and student council, Nicolet Superintendent Rick Monroe said.

A Facebook page was created shortly after the accident in memory of the girls, "Halee Fischer and Jenni Geren You Will be Missed." Friends and loved ones can share their memories and photos of the girls on the page as well as connect with others who are suffering through the loss of Halee and Jenni.

Marianne Kloehn is one of the parent volunteers who helps with the gymnastics team Geren was on. She said that Geren had just told the girls on Friday that she was in charge of providing the team with "Awesome-ness."

"I think that she did that until the very end," Kloehn said.

My name is Alexis Redd-Triggs, I met Halee at Parkway Elementary School during first grade through eigth grade. Halee always had a smile on her face that can never be forgotten. She was always an optimistic young lady with a positive attitude. I cannot recall the last time i spoke to her but the last time i talked to her was at our eigth grade graduarion as she crossed the stage with a dazzling smile. Alot has changed and things will never be the same. Halee you are resting in a better place, i will miss you always<3
