A 27-year-old man from Milwaukee faces charges after, he reportedly said, he “deliberately and purely murdered” a nurse practitioner from Froedtert Hospital.
Beaudin’s body was discovered underneath a vehicle at Froedtert Hospital last week.
Surveillance video shows he attacked and beat Beaudin in the parking lot.
Froedtert Hospital shared this statement in full after charges were filed:
Today we learned additional details and the identity of the suspect in Carlie Beaudin’s tragic death. This is very difficult news, and our hearts go out to Carlie’s loved ones and colleagues.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has just filed first degree intentional homicide charges. We understand that Carlie was attacked in Froedtert Hospital Parking Area 5 and driven to Froedtert Hospital Parking Area 1, where she was found. The details included in the complaint are disturbing.
The suspect, Kenneth B. Freeman, has been identified as being formerly employed by a parking service provider as a valet on the Froedtert Hospital campus from January to October of 2018. Froedtert policies require that contracted employees from third-party vendors follow the same background checks required for direct employees. The parking service provider has confirmed that the suspect cleared the background check and that he was terminated for a non-violent infraction.
We remain vigilant about the emotional and physical safety of every person who works or studies at, is cared for by, or visits our campuses, clinics and hospitals. Safety is our top priority. We have made security enhancements, and we will continue to make improvements.
We will continue to take direction from law enforcement, and the situation will follow due legal process.
