House that was the site of homicide torn down

A wrecking crew is knocking down a Kenosha house that was the scene of a homicide last year.

The crew was at work on the house, 7732 14th Ave., on Tuesday afternoon, using a backhoe to knock down the structure. The house was expected to be completely razed by the end of the day.

The homeowner, Randall Volar III, 34, was shot and killed in the house on June 5, 2018, the house set on fire after the shooting.

Firefighters who came to fight the fire discovered Volar’s body inside.

Chrystul Kizer, 18, of Milwaukee, was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, auto theft and arson in connection with the shooting.

Prosecutors allege Kizer shot Volar and set the house on fire after he had paid an Uber driver to bring her to his house the night of his death.

Since Kizer was charged, defense attorneys discovered that Volar was under investigation for child sex trafficking.

Kenosha Police had served a search warrant on his home before his death, seizing electronics and evidence that he was involved with underage girls.

Images of Kizer, 17 at the time of the homicide, were among the evidence seized.

Last week, a judge ruled that Kizer’s defense attorneys will have access to evidence gathered as part of the investigation into Volar’s activities.

According to a representative of the city Department of Community Development and Inspections, the owners of the Volar home secured a raze permit for the house.

The house, built in 1948 on a corner lot, was just 380 square feet, according to county property records.

The property is owned by Volar’s estate.
