by Chris Patterson

BROWN DEER -- The Village of Brown Deer released the results of an independent study of the Brown Deer Police Department's previous interactions with Radcliffe Haughton, the man who killed several women at Brookfield's Azana Salon & Spa.

The 170-page report talks about Brown Deer's domestic abuse policy compliance, training on domestic abuse complaints, and the full history of the Brown Deer Police Department's contacts with Haughton.

The report was ordered just weeks after Haughton burst into Azana Salon and Spa with the intent to kill his wife Zina Daniel. He injured and killed several of Zina's co-workers at the salon just two days after Zina filed a restraining order against him.

In the 911 audio police released, Zina's daughter confirms her father was terrorizing the Azana salon not sure if her mother was still inside and okay.

Just days before the shooting, surveillance footage shows Radcliffe at a sporting goods store looking at guns. It was later revealed that Radcliffe bought his weapon on the internet.

Earlier this year, police released a 600-page document outlining their investigation. They also released several photos from the scene.
