KC murder-suicide victim had protection order

January 8, 2012


— Overland Park police say a woman who was killed by her husband had a protection order against him.

Fifty-year-old Debra Beaver was shot Thursday in a southern Overland Park subdivision. Officers later found the body of 58-year-old Barry Beaver inside a truck not far from where his fatally wounded wife was found.

Court records show the couple had filed for divorce in October and had been going through mediation. Police said Friday that Debra Beaver applied for the order of protection in November. In the application, she wrote that her estranged husband had threatened her, driven his vehicle into hers and broken out her car’s windshield with a golf club.

The Kansas City Star reported that she said she knew her husband would hurt her if given the opportunity.
