Search begins in Columbia landfill for 2006 murder victim

Searchers started looking in the Columbia landfill on Monday for the body of Megan Shultz.

Police say her husband, Keith Comfort, walked into a Wisconsin police station on Aug. 4 and admitted to killing her and putting her body in a dumpster on Amelia Street in 2006.

CPD detectives said on Friday they’ve narrowed the search down to a 3-4 acre area of the landfill. That landfill covers more than 100 acres, and the trash piles are 10-50 feet high.
