Who Is Radcliffe Haughton, the Brookfield Shooting Suspect?

Radcliffe Haughton, 45, of Brown Deer is the suspect in Sunday's shooting at Azana Spa in Brookfield.

Radcliffe Haughton, 45, of Brown Deer is the suspect in the October 21 shooting at Azana Spa in Brookfield. Haughton was found dead inside the spa of self-inflicted wounds, police said.

Estranged Husband

Patch has learned the man wanted by police is apparently the estranged husband of one of the hair stylists at the spa.

A spa employee told Patch the hair stylist has been having problems since she left her husband. The man is believed to have slashed car tires in the parking lot of the spa and the business recently put up signs on most of its doors warning employees to keep them locked at all times.

The employee who spoke to Patch said the woman's estranged husband was out of work and his wife was working every day to bring in money to pay the bills. However, she recently decided to leave him, and that's when the problems started.

Online records suggest Haughton owed "Concours Motors" via a bank nearly $20,000 in 2006.

A delinquent tax warrant for $5,190.88 was also filed against Haughton on June 18, 2009, according to online court records. "Zina Haughton" is also listed as a defendant in the civil case. A "full satisfaction" judgment status was issued June 12, 2012. The case status is listed as "filed only."

Fox6now.com reported Radcliffe Haughton was attending classes at Milwaukee Area Technical College and that one of his professors said he seemed depressed in recent weeks.

Shooter's Facebook Page

The suspect's Facebook page lists his favorite quotation as:

“If God created the lamb then who created the tiger? There is no mention of the Tiger in the bible!”

In the "About Me" section of his Facebook page, it says:

At about the age of 4 I asked myself a question.
"Where was I before I was born?
What was I before I came into this body?
Those question are still yet unanswered, but each day I am reminded that every breath I take, every step I make and every beam of light that bounces off an object to give me sight must have been engineered by some greater being. That is why I ride and ride fast. Fear begins at 143.”

Haughton describes himself as divorced and says he graduated from Wheeling High School in 1985 in Illinois. He describes his employer as Haughton International Fairs, in sales, and says his hometown was Kingston, Jamaica.

Pictures show him with motorcycles and a young female relative.

On Oct. 9, he wrote: “Can anyone help get me out of Wisconsin?

On Oct. 8, he wrote: “Need to get out of Wisconsin, HELP”

On Oct. 3, he wrote: “Shooting birds”

On Aug. 14: “I predict this will catch on like wild fire. I might even try it” he wrote and posted a video of “sleeping man mistaken for floating corpse.”

Restraining Order, Home for Sale

On Oct. 8, a temporary restraining order was issued againt Haughton. Haughton was also charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct in 2011. Those charges, however, were dismissed.

A Brown Deer home is posted for sale online with "Radcliffe Haughton" listed as the seller. The "single family" home has a 53223 zip code, which matches the address listed for Haughton in online court records. The asking price is $245,000.

Haughton's Online Identity

There is a Google Plus account under Haughton's name featuring a picture of someone who resembles Haughton holding a gun-like object toward the camera.

A LinkedIn account for a man with the same name in "the Greater Milwaukee area" lists Haughton as "Owner at Haughton International Corporations."

I posted his Google+ picture. Looks like some sort of water nozzle. Maybe he worked the car wash at Concours and had the pic taken there. Or it is some sort of gun. Either way, still a murderer who we need not waste are time trying to understand.

I worked with Radcliffe, it's a sad and equally strange day. He was at one time doing very well for himself, I can only imagine what went wrong in his life, just terrible. By the way Radcliffe was Jamaican not black.

This comment is plainly immature and goes against the grain of common sense. Grow up, Little Stevie.

Does anyone know if Radcliffe Haughton used to be a salesman / sales manager for Land Rover of Glendale, about 2001-2005? He looks very familiar...
G October 22, 2012 at 03:41 AM
Yes Scott I think he did. I worked with him at IA for a couple of years. He was a really nice guy and I feel mixed emotions. It's a terrible thing he did so it's impossible to feel sad for a former friend and colleague.
Randy1949 October 22, 2012 at 03:42 AM
Someone on HuffPo mentioned him having a job for a Land Rover dealership in Glendale.

@Jeff, one can be Jamaican and black at the same time.
Nuitari (Grand Master Editor) October 22, 2012 at 10:07 AM
HAHAHA, Jeff must just know white Jamaicans.
Sher October 22, 2012 at 11:50 AM
Not that race matters but he is black......the real question is what does nationality have to do with anything? He was a man with issues...jamaican or not.
Jszzy October 22, 2012 at 12:14 PM
There are white jamaicans. Our motto is out if many we are one. It doesnt matter if he is jamaica its about the life lost and the people affected.
Suzette October 22, 2012 at 01:16 PM
Why does eveything always have to be about black and white? He was a human, he had issues just like we all do, the sad part is how he chose to deal with those issues. Enough of this racist talk, I want one person whether black or white to tell me when they bleed they see a different colour than red.

This is a sad tradgedy !! I hadnt seen Radcliffe in years , but was at that time a promising sales and later salesmanager in the high end car business in Chicagos north shore. I pray for all the families involved. Takin a life even one of your own is senseless. Hope all people...BLACK WHITE ALL NATIONALITIES AND RELIGIONS , just support and help one another and choose life !

The article says that he indicated on a facebook page that he graduated from Wheeling High School, in Illinois in 1985. I graduated that year from that school and have no recollection of him. I pulled my yearbook and there is no mention of him. Admittedly, it is still possible, just not likely in my opinion.
BB October 22, 2012 at 03:37 PM
yes he was GM at LR Glendale for years.
BB October 22, 2012 at 03:42 PM
Radcliffe was a good man when I knew him. Upbeat and positive. And Zina was a saint. Have some respect for this horrible tragedy and thier children.
GinnepSeed October 22, 2012 at 05:56 PM
@Suzette, spoken like a person with workable brain cells
GinnepSeed October 22, 2012 at 05:58 PM
Well said BB, all this badmouthing is not going to bring the people who died, including the shooter or heal the wounds of the people who were injured. After all is said and done, the ones I really feel for are the children. They always seem to get caught up in adult mess.
H.E. Pennypacker October 22, 2012 at 06:01 PM
The children? How about Cary L. Robuck, 35, of Racine? How about Maelyn M. Lind, 38, of Oconomowoc? What did they do wrong? Feel sorry for these two women and their families, they have children too.
GinnepSeed October 22, 2012 at 07:02 PM
@H.E. Pennypacker, get the knot out of your knickers and read my comment correctly. I said "the CHILDREN", not just the killer's children. I am referring to ALL THE CHILDREN that are affected by the parent being injured or killed. You people are so hot under the collar that you never take the time to read and comprehend what you read before going for someone's jugular.

Throwing acid in a person's face is a frequent occurance in Jamaica. I am a Jamaican.

Another a**hole with no self control, with access to weapons. Yes, this man was an A**hole. Period.
chaq October 23, 2012 at 03:46 AM
i knew him as a person, 10 yrs ago. its sad that he took other innocent lives and his with such a cowardly act. i wish he had chosen another option or those posts that are being posted of his face book should have been answered , due to cry for help. let us be friends when we " friend" people on face book and give a helping hand. some lives would have been saved should someone have reached out. this doesn't leave any one out of the blame, be it the authorities they had enough to hold him for safety to self or others, but we all failed them, may there souls rest in peace
Désirée Rose October 23, 2012 at 03:48 AM
I had a nursing class with him. He was a sweet thoughtful man. It must have been a hard dark road to get to where he was. Find some pity because hate certainly won't make things better.
Lisa October 23, 2012 at 02:45 PM
RIP... Radcliffe. I'm disappointed and sad & that you took innocent lives to deal with your problems.. What happen to you?? Condolences to the families..
GinnepSeed October 23, 2012 at 02:51 PM
So am I Reta

Wonder if this is another case of someone on anti-depressants AKA suicide drug and makes people do violent acts. This has been the case in many homicides and also suicides! The drug even comes with this warning. It makes balanced people, unbalanced!
