Did Woke Madison help murder Beth Potter and Robin Carre?

The murderer ‘let his diversity shine over oppressive systems’

This Wednesday 09-07-22, Khari Sanford will be sentenced in Dane County Circuit Court for the execution-style slaying of Dr. Beth Potter and her husband Robin Carre.

Beth Potter and Robin Carre

They were murdered by a person they had tried to help,” their memorial obituary reads.

Khari Sanford was 18 years old on March 30, 2020 when — some time after 10:40 p.m — he entered the Carre-Potter’s home on upper middle-class Rowley Avenue, about six blocks from the University of Wisconsin’s Camp Randall football stadium. Using the Volkswagen minivan the couple had lent him, Sanford and his convicted accomplice Ali’jah “Hunch” Larrue took their captives on a circuitous route to the University of Wisconsin Arboretum. There, not far off the Vilas Park entrance, Sanford forced the two, still wearing their bed clothes in the March cold, to their knees.

With his powerful Glock .357 SIG semi-automatic handgun, Sanford shot Robin once behind the left ear at close range, execution-style. He shot Beth twice, once in the upper arm, once in the back of the head. Perhaps she had struggled. During the 26-minute drive to their execution, one can only imagine how Beth and Robin  tried to dissuade the young man from his deadly deed, to remember their many kindnesses, to promise more favors.

 That’s a .357 SIG Sanford holds.

“It was calculated, cold blooded and senseless,” the chief of University of Wisconsin Police said at the time.

Shocking and puzzling, too, since the murdered couple had given every consideration to Sanford, a young black man in a romantic relationship with the Carre-Potter’s daughter Miriam, whom the white couple had adopted out of an orphanage in Guatemala.

In the immediate hours after his deadly deed, Sanford attempted to cash out the dead couple’s ATM cards. A form of reparations, perhaps. Payment for the dead couple’s white privilege and the larger society’s institutional racism, it could be argued. Because Khari Sanford certainly identified as a victim. He posted on his Facebook page a few months before the murders. (Source here.)

“We gon’ change this world, cause it’s time to let our diversity and youth shine over all oppressive systems and rebuild our democracy.”

She treated victims

Dr. Potter practiced family medicine at Access Community Health Centers’ Wingra Family Medical Center on S. Park Street, only a few blocks from where her body was found. The coronavirus pandemic had locked down much of normal activity beginning in March 2020. That had special relevance to the physician; she was susceptible due to her practice and the medications she was taking.

Beth and her husband had allowed Sanford to live at their home on Rowley Avenue (but not sleep in the same room) but the young people refused to observe social distancing. To compensate, the generous couple set Khari and Miriam up with their own household and loaned them their minivan.

But that wasn’t enough. Shortly before school was canceled in March 2020, a fellow student in ceramics class at West High School — ceramics class! — told police investigators he overheard Miriam and Khari plotting how how they could get money. The classmate reported hearing Miriam tell Sanford that her parents had “bands” of money and that they were rich. On March 8, Miriam e-mailed to Sanford a self-photo he had taken earlier pointing his Glock at the camera.

A terrible foreboding

Late the afternoon on the day she died, Beth Potter took a walk with a friend (identified in the criminal complaint against Sanford as LG). According to that complaint:

LG advised they talked about work and talked about Beth Potter’s daughter, Miriam Potter Carre and her boyfriend Khari Sanford. … LG reports that Beth Potter had told her that her daughter was saying things as they were moving out such as, “You don’t care about me” and “You don’t talk to me”. …  LG said according to Beth Potter, Miriam and Khari Sanford literally sat in her bedroom all the time and ordered food and didn’t really communicate with Beth Potter. LG thought more bad stuff was going on but Beth Potter didn’t tell her. LG said Beth Potter doesn’t usually get frustrated, but was clearly frustrated during their conversation.

    A dual obituary in yesterday’s State Journal contained a line in the opening paragraph which cut to the quick:

    They Were Murdered In Madison, WI On March 31, 2020, By A Person They Had Tried To Help.

    Has their loving daughter been implicated in anything?

    The Gotch


    • She has escaped prosecution under Ishmael Ozane. Just like Althea Bernstein, caught red handed but ignored all together. He has a thing for young women of color. But thankfully, the lawyer for the estate has filed to bar her from any inheritance because she was “complicit” in the murders. The immunity she received for testifying had to include a requirement to tell the truth. But she lied when she said she didn’t know Sanford was going to kill them. An earlier text from Sanford on her phone said,

      “That’s alright, they gon’ die.”

      I don’t know, maybe that can interpreted in many ways

        Thanks pm.

        “the lawyer for the estate has filed to bar her from any inheritance because she was ‘complicit’ in the murders.”

        Poetic Justice would have her ending up workin’ a pole for a living.

        And did they drop the kidnapping charges against Sanford & his POS pal Ali’Jah Larrue?

        Too bad Blaska didn’t include that damning Sanford “thumbs up” photo op with the mayor.

          Photo with the mayor? It’s coming! It’s coming!

        • The best part of that photo is that Satya cannot use the same dodge as Kevin Barrett, that he “has no control over who attends” his events. Do you think Kahri sought out the Mayor for a photo op, or was it the other way around? Maybe Sanford was going to include it with his college applications.

          “Do you think Kahri sought out the Mayor for a photo op, or was it the other way around?”

          Just HAD to be the other way around; Sanford’s too phuquin’ stupid for that kind of entry-level moron cognition.

          IMO, Herzzoner was trying to illustrate some sort of Success Story because Sanford was in DEFERRED PRESECUTION for felony auto theft…from his freakin’ foster parents!

          How’d that work, SRC…?

          Anywho, shortly after he was admitted into the program, “a photo of Sanford posing with a gun was posted to his Facebook page.”

          Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne: “To my knowledge…there was nothing restricting Mr. Sanford’s ability to possess a firearm,”

          FFsS, with people in the position of making decisions about phuquewits like Sanford remaining in polite society saying $#!t like that, does the fact-based Universe have any chance whatsoever?

    The daughter was very involved in the death of her parents and should be made accountable. Denying her any inheritance is not enough. Beth Potter was a wonderful person and neither her nor Robin deserved to die like they did. I hope that their killer never gets put of prison.

    IMHO I think Sanford would have been deterred if there had been a masculine presence in the household. It’s a microcosm of what ails Madison.

    That being said, the kid is a bad seed. I think he’ll get life with no possibility of parole and no one will complain.

      Bravo Indigo November Golf Oscar!

      “It’s a microcosm of what ails Madison.”

      And writ large, the result of generationally self-inflected cultural and behavioral pathologies that are largely ignored because despicable Lefty enablers make it breathtakingly easier to point the finger at RAYcism.

    Almost 1700 police calls over weekend. It’s climbing more and more , 3 day weekend especially worse. Chief sugar coated them all, as usual. Future thugs, mental patients.


  5. Robert Martin says:

    Does anyone see a pattern with this double murder and many of the past mass killings over the last 3 years? The majority of them have been conducted by young men under the age of 23, and many more were around the age of 20. I can only guess but are the young men being ignored or minimized while the young women are being “impowered” by the media? Is there a cause and effect here? Maybe a connection? Just saying….
