John Mercure: Mercurey Rising

Have You Seen This Creep?

  • Print

This is Gary Medrow.

Police say the 68 year old has been impersonating a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter, trying to convince female high school athletes to meet him for 'photo shoots'.  So far, no young ladies have taken the bait.

Medrow is no stranger to law enforcement.  Among other things, he has been convicted of impersonating a police officer.

He apparently has a strange fetish for women carrying other women around.  That's right... women physically carrying other women around.  At one point Medrow was a patient at the Mendota Mental Health Institute in Madison. Authorities there said he was being treated for the "carrying women around" fetish.  In at least one of the instance here in the Milwaukee area, he asked young athletes if they would pose for pictures in a pyramid or holding teammates on their shoulders.

What a weirdo.

If you have seen Medrow, please call police.
