Audit: Police responded appropriately in Haughton case

BROWN DEER (WITI) -- An independent audit of how the Brown Deer Police Department (BDPD) handled its dealings with Radcliffe Haughton, the Azana Salon & Spa suspect, finds the police agency responded appropriately and professionally.

Haughton shot and killed three women and wounded four others when he walked into Azana Salon & Spa on Sunday, October 21, 2012. He later turned the gun on himself. Records show Brown Deer police responded to the Haughton residence, where Radcliffe lived with Zina Daniel, multiple times prior to the mass shooting in Brookfield.

Village officials hired Wisconsin Law Enforcement Instructor Robert Willis in November 2012 to conduct the review of all police contacts with the Haughtons within Brown Deer. Officials instructed Willis that he has “no restraints on the scope or depth of his review.”

The 171-page report is being called the Willis Report -- after the report's author. Again, it finds no glaring mistakes and no negligence on the part of Brown Deer police that led to the mass shooting in Brookfield.
