Medical examiner identifies victims in Arboretum homicide

The Dane County Medical Examiner has identified the two people killed yesterday in the UW Arboretum.

They are Beth E. Potter, 52, and her husband, Robin L. Carre, 57, both of Madison.

A jogger found the couple about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Arboretum.

Potter was a professor in the UW Health Department of Family Medicine and Community Health and the medical director of Employee Health Services.

Dr. William Schwab, the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health interim chair issued a statement:

She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time after arrival. Preliminary results from the autopsy confirm that Potter died from homicidal related trauma as well.

Carre was pronounced dead at the scene. Preliminary results from an autopsy confirm that Carre died from what the medical examiner described as homicidal related trauma.

Police are now calling the killing "targeted."

UW Police spokesperson Marc Lovicott confirmed the killings as targeted in an interview with 27 News Wednesday.

"We're working to figure out exactly what happened to them. We're canvassing the neighborhood as we speak talking to people who live here seeing if they heard something or saw something," said Lovicott.

"We've come to the conclusion, at least at this point, that we do not believe either one of individuals who were found are responsible for this, so we believe we are looking for an individual or individuals who are responsible for this incident," Lovicott told 27 News.
