Wisconsin police investigates what is believed to be targeted murder of doctor and her husband
The death of Wisconsin doctor and her husband is under investigation after a jogger found their bodies on Tuesday in the recreation area. Police believe that their murder was targeted.
52-year-old Dr. Beth Potter and her husband, 57-year-old Robin Carre were found dead in the UW Arboretum recreation area that includes more than 1,200 acres of forest and prairies.
Potter was a respected physician at the Wingra Family Medical Center. Dane County Medical Examiner’s office said that the couple died from "homicidal related trauma." However, the manner they were slain is still not disclosed.
"Through our police investigation, we reached a point where we were confident in that this was not random and this couple was targeted," said police department spokesman Marc Lovicott in an email Thursday. "Beyond that, I can't provide any further details as this is a very active police investigation."
Potter’s husband, Robin Carre was an independent educational consultant. He offered consulting services to students and their families for the college search and application process and ran his own website. He was also a former coaching director at Regent Soccer Club, a youth soccer organization in Madison.
