Trucker Named As 1990 Murder Suspect

Two murdered teenagers. Two Wisconsin cold cases. And now, many years later, two breaks that finally may lead to charges.

Investigators in Racine and Fond du Lac counties announced separately over the weekend that they have new developments in cold cases from the 1990s — the killings of 14-year-old Amber Gail Creek and 18-year-old Berit Beck — and news conferences are scheduled for early this week in each county.

Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling told the Racine Journal Times in an email Saturday night that his deputies had arrested a 36-year-old Illinois man in the slaying 17 years ago of Amber Creek, a runaway from Palatine, Ill.

Sheriff Mylan Fink said in a news conference that the evidence in question was taken from the Beck’s van, which was found in Fond du Lac two days after Beck disappeared.

“In the case, it’s been a nightmare since the day it happened. This is the first time we had tangible physical evidence to put someone in the interior of that van,” Fink told reporters. “We’re actively going forward. It’s an ongoing and active investigation.”

Beck vanished July 17, 1990 while traveling to a computer seminar in Appleton. Her van was found two days later in a Kmart parking lot in Fond du Lac, about 70 miles north of Milwaukee. Her body was found about a month later in a ditch near Waupun.
