What Arvada, Colorado’s Haskel Crawford did to his friend Karl Beaman Jr. at Red Sky Condos in Aurora

Karl Beaman Jr. of Denver, Colorado, United States has died. He was 38.

In May 2022, Beaman went missing. He was last seen in Lakewood, Colorado.

Before Beaman went missing, he and his friend Haskel Leroy Crawford, 38, of Arvada, Colorado were almost caught stealing catalytic converters. A warrant was issued for Beaman.


Crawford is the father of the children of Casie Bock, 29, of Aurora, Colorado. He allegedly accused Beaman of being a police informant.

One day, when Bock came home at her apartment at the Red Sky Condos in Aurora, she found Crawford and the lifeless body of Beaman on the ground. She helped Crawford hide Beaman’s body beneath a slab of concrete in the crawlspace of the condo.


While high on meth, Bock told other people what Crawford did to Beaman. On April 1, 2023, a relative of Beaman called the Aurora Police Department and reported how Bock helped Crawford bury Beaman’s body.

On April 3, 2023, the Aurora Police Department received another tip with the same details. On April 4, 2023, Bock was arrested and charged with being an accessory to homicide.

On April 6, 2023, Crawford was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. When the warrant was issued for his arrest, he was already booked into the Jefferson County Jail in Golden, Colorado for charges of attempted first-degree murder related to another case.
