Man Who Took Own Life Suspected in Child Sex Assault

November 16th, 2010 by Staff

GREENFIELD – The man who committed suicide after Brookfield Police pulled him over Friday afternoon was under investigation for the repeated sexual assault of a child, Greenfield Police said Monday.
“Friday he was located by a city of Brookfield police officer,” said Lt. Jay Johnson of Greenfield Police. “They performed a traffic stop and the subject took his own life.”
A temporary felony arrest warrant had been issued for Brian C. Beardsley, 38, for repeated acts of sexual assault perpetrated on a child.
Monday night TODAY’S TMJ4 visited the Milwaukee home Beardsley shared with his wife and daughter. Nobody was home. Beardsley’s aunt was reached by telephone and said the family “is not proud” of what happened. She said all in the family were too distraught to make any on-camera comments.
Although a felony warrant was issued for Beardsley last week, he was never charged. Greenfield Police say the case against him is now closed.
