Egg Harbor Murder Conspirators Appear in Court

Elizabeth Huettl

Michael Estevez

Two Town of Egg Harbor residents appeared in Door County Circuit Court March 19 on charges that include conspiracy to commit murder. Door County Sheriff Chief Deputy Patrick McCarty said Michael Estevez and Elizabeth Huettl, originally taken into custody in February after delivering heroin to a drug task force informant, were charged with murder conspiracy March 12. McCarty said the department learned Estevez thought he had identified the drug deal informant “and put a plot in place to take him out” through a third party. A subsequent undercover investigation and search warrant resulted in recordings and documents supporting the criminal allegations. While McCarty said at no time was anyone’s life in danger, “It hit home with people who work in law enforcement,” he said, adding that it shows the desperation of someone facing heavy drug charges. “This time the target was a drug informant. What if it had been a cop or the district attorney?”
