Turning Point Door County offers $10K for mysterious death information

Turning Point Door County needs your help to solve a mystery in hopes of easing the pain of one of its own.


On Sunday, the organization announced it would be rewarding $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the death of Cordarrow Hirthe. Turning Point Door County provides services such as daily living skills, supported employment, day services, and employment services to individuals who may need additional support. 


Over three years ago, Hirthe was found with two gunshot wounds to his head outside his vehicle near a wayside parking lot for the Ahnapee State Trail in Sturgeon Bay. "Hirthe holds a special place in the heart of In-Home Support Dana Vandertie," said Turning Point of Door County's Tim Beck. "We want to help the family in any way we can, and the extra funds will benefit the ongoing investigation. By working together and supporting the efforts of the investigation, we hope to provide the family with answers and closure."


The organization is also asking for donations to help support the investigation surrounding Hirthe's mysterious death.


Hirthe was 32 years old when he passed away, leaving behind his family, his career at Bay Shipbuilding, and his love of riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles as the vice president of the Door Devils Motorcycle Club. 


A previous version listed Dana Vandertie as the mother of Hirthe's child. The mother according to this obituary is Amanda Vandertie. We regret the error.
