MILWAUKEE (AP) — Officials at the Tomah VA Medical Center have briefed the staff of U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson on the care of a Wisconsin veteran who later killed himself.

Johnson said he wanted answers in the death of 29-year-old Brian Rossell of Wausau. Rossell's body was found Sept. 8 in Lake Wausau. His mother said her son sought help from the Tomah VA this summer and was turned away.

The Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/2cXl1Hq ) reports the Tomah VA briefed Johnson's staff on Friday. In a statement, Johnson says he appreciated the briefing but adds he remains concerned about the circumstances of Rossell's death.

A Tomah VA spokesman has said the facility does not turn away eligible veterans for care.

The Tomah facility was dubbed "Candy Land" by some veterans for its prescribing practices.
