KAUKAUNA — Kaukauna mayor Tony Penterman reached out on social media Tuesday to express his sympathies to those affected by the deaths yesterday of two young children.

“We were saddened to learn of the tragic event that unfolded early yesterday morning in the City of Kaukauna that took the lives of two young innocent children. On behalf of myself, the Common Council, and the City of Kaukauna our thoughts and prayers go out to the families during this difficult time,” Penterman wrote on the city’s Facebook page.

Outagamie County dispatch was called about 7:10 a.m. from a residence in the 1200 block of Crooks Avenue.

When Kaukauna officers and Kaukauna fire arrived they found two children dead with what police described in a news release as intentionally inflicted injuries.

Police have identified the victims as William Beyer, 5, and Danielle Beyer, 3.

In a Tuesday afternoon news conference, Police Chief Jamie Graf said the investigation continues and police have not made any arrests.

Teams are still processing the scene and canvassing the neighborhoods and conducting interviews, Graff said.

Graff said police had talked to both parents as part of their interviews.

He declined to say who made the 911 call from the home and declined to talk about any possible suspects.

“The caller indicated their children need their help,” Graff said about the 911 call.

One victim was a student in Kaukauna, Graff said.

This is still an on-going investigation and no other information will be released at this time, according to police.

If you have any information in regards to this incident, please call the Kaukauna Police Department at 920-766-6333.
