Norfolk bank murders remembered after 10 years

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) _ A decade after five people were killed in a botched bank robbery in Norfolk, the impact of the crime lingers.

Three men were sentenced to death for killing five people at the U.S. Bank branch in Norfolk. A fourth man who served as a lookout was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences.

And family members and friends of the victims still remember the people who were killed on Sept. 26, 2002.

The victims were bank customer Evonne Tuttle and bank employees Jo Mausbach, Sam Sun, Lola Elwood and Lisa Bryant.

Sue Staehr was in the bank branch the day of the robbery as an auditor for U.S. Bank. She tells the Lincoln Journal Star that she often thinks of the victims when she's at events like weddings or graduations.
