Goelet Alessandro Carlo Beuf

Officer Beuf was killed when both he and a suspect were struck by a tractor-trailer while struggling on the side of a roadway at N. 24th Avenue and W. Lone Cactus Drive.

Officer Beuf had responded to a call and was approaching a man when the man began to run. Officer Beuf chased the suspect and caught him on the side of a roadway. As the two struggled, they fell into the path of a slow-moving tractor-trailer.

The truck stopped, but Officer Beuf and the suspect were entangled in the front axle. Officer Beuf was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect was critically injured in the accident. When he recovered, he was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $9,000 in restitution for the death of Officer Beuf.

Officer Beuf was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Phoenix Police Department for one year. He is survived by his wife and four children.
