Autopsy reports provide details on Wis. salon shooting

By Lisa Black, Chicago Tribune –

CHICAGO — One victim in Sunday’s shooting spree at a suburban Milwaukee spa died of multiple gunshot wounds, a second died of a wound to her head and chest, and a third woman died from a single shot to the neck, according to the Waukesha County Medical Examiner’s Office, which released autopsy reports Tuesday.

The estranged wife of the suspect, Zina Haughton, 42, of Brown Deer, Wis., died of multiple wounds during the attack at Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield. Maelyn Lind, 38, of Oconomowoc, Wis., died of a gunshot wound to the head and chest, according to a news release. Cary Robuck, 35, of Racine, Wis., died of a single gunshot wound, according to the report.

The gunman, Radcliffe Haughton, 45, shot himself in the head, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Haughton, who had threatened violence against his wife before, barged into the Brookfield spa at about 11 a.m. Sunday, killing the three women and injuring four more before turning the gun on himself.

Haughton had purchased the .40-caliber gun used in the shootings just one day earlier, on Saturday, according to Thomas Ahern, spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Haughton, who purchased the gun from a private citizen, had been ordered by a court to turn in all firearms last Thursday after his wife obtained a four-year restraining order against him. He did not turn in any weapons at that time, the Milwaukee Sheriff’s Office reported.
