Becks Thank FDL For Help In Their Daughter’s Search And During Murder Investigation

The parents of Berit Beck this week expressed their gratitude to those who helped make it possible to find their daughter’s murderer and bring him to justice. Dennis Brantner was sentenced to 10 years in prison on a second degree reckless homicide charge. During Brantner’s sentencing hearing Thursday Berit’s father Dave Beck talked about the pain they suffered during the search for their missing daughter in the summer of 1990 and the horror they felt five weeks later when her badly decomposed body was discovered in a ditch outside of Waupun.  Berit’s mother Diane Beck says people in Fond du Lac aided in the search and contributed tips in the investigation. That’s something the Becks haven’t forgotten. Diane Beck says, “People here in Fond du Lac have really been great over the years too. Whenever we seemed to need any help they jumped in. Berit wasn’t ever forgotten and we certainly do appreciate that.”
