$100,000 puts 18-year old charged with execution-style killing of Madison doctor & husband back on the street!
The mother of Khari Sanford, one of two 18-year olds charged with the execution-style murder of Dr. Beth Potter and her husband Robin Carre on March 31, has started a Go-Fund Me social media site to raise bail for her boy. Ronetta Sanford called her boy “a sweet and loving teddy,” against whom murder charges filed Tuesday (04-07-2020), “can’t be true.”
UPDATE #1: Mother’s GoFund-me site is today at 17:46 (04-09-2020) off-line for violating standards.
Update #2: On 10 March 2020, Dane County Circuit Court issued a bench warrant against Ronetta S. Sanford, age 34, on two counts of misdemeanor battery dating back to August 2018 after two failures to appear in court.
The mother says she needs one hundred grand to post bond on the $1 million bail set by the criminal court. As of noon today (04-09-2020), her site had collected $375. As we recounted earlier:
A jogger found Beth Potter the morning of March 31 lying aside a trail in the University of Wisconsin Arboretum. She was clothed only in pajamas and socks on a 30-degree night, not yet dead. Her husband, Robin Carre, lying nearby only in his underwear, was already gone. Police found .357 SIG shell casings around the bodies, “indicating a likelihood that the victims had been shot at that location,” according to the criminal complaint. Both had been shot point-blank in the head.
The lengthy criminal complaint appears to cross its T’s and dot its i’s with forensic evidence, GPS vehicle tracking, surveillance video recordings, cell phone traffic, and multiple witnesses to allegedly overheard conversations and the sound of gunfire in the Arboretum.
Khari’s mother, Ronetta Sanford, makes this plea:
“As you all know, this young man is sitting in jail right now for allegations that to whom know him best aren’t and can’t be true… we are posting this go fund me to help with legal fees or simply post bail because jail is not where he should be grieving the loss of the two he love as well.
“Khari Sanford is the oldest to a mother of 6 and a full time student at West High-school. Khari is the vice President of their Black Student Union, a strong student advocate voice in the community for all youth, whom just finished an internship at the Capital building that got him closer to his political dreams and ambitions. He has goals of going to college and majoring in political science, African American history and one day teach it the right way.”
The dead couple would want you to contribute!
“Beth Potter and Robin Carre were helping Khari with his living situation and were big advocates for his future and college goals. Khari appreciated everything they were helping him accomplish and always expressed that to them. Khari wants justice for the two whom he viewed as parents just as much as everyone else because they played such a vital roll in his life.
“We all know how the media can influence the public and is trying to paint him in a bad way. Those who know Khari knows that he is a very caring, sweet and loving teddy who couldn’t and wouldn’t HURT let alone MURDER any human being. We ask that you donate what you can and not let the media and their assumptions find him guilty before the full story is released.”
An on-line fundraiser begun April for Potter and Carre’s family raised over $28,000 before it was ended after a few days.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: We understand a mother’s blind love but wonder how progressive Madison will respond.
