MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies have arrested three more men in connection with a state drug informant’s death.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Department announced Monday that the men were taken into custody over the weekend on suspicion of aiding a felon and being a party to a crime of hiding a corpse.

Investigators believe the three men were present at the town of Burke auto repair garage where a Waunakee man and a Madison man stabbed 23-year-old Jacob Payne. They believe the men dumped Payne’s body in Lake Mendota.

A canoeist discovered the body on April 11. The Waunakee man was taken into custody the next day. The Madison man was arrested on April 14.
