Everett Beauregard Murdered: Police release new details on suspect, vehicle of interest in Temple graduate’s death near Drexel

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police have released new information as they continue to search for the suspect in the murder of Temple University graduate student Everett Beauregard.

Police released updated surveillance video Thursday showing the suspect in a dark blue hoodie.

The suspect was previously described by police as a thin black man wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with a zip through the front and two front pockets, black trousers and a light-colored Covid-style mask covering his chin and mouth.

Investigators also developed a vehicle of interest, described as a two-tone green Jeep Grand Cherokee from the late 1990s to early 2000s.

Police said Beauregard, 23, was killed by a lone gunman just before 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 22, in the 400 block of North 35th Street near the Drexel University campus.

According to police, Beauregard got off a train at 34th and Market Streets, a few blocks from his home, after leaving a meeting with friends at a bar in South Philadelphia.

Investigators said the suspect had circled the block for at least an hour before the shooting.

Video shows the gunman walking down the 400 block of North 35th Street in Powelton.

Philadelphia Police Capt. Jason Smith said as Beauregard walked past the suspect, the gunman turned quickly and immediately began firing at the victim as his back was turned to him.

The 23-year-old was hit once in the neck, severing his spinal cord, Smith said.

Beauregard collapsed on the sidewalk. Smith said the suspect ran away but still fired a shot at the victim.

The gunman was last seen running north on 35th Street towards Spring Garden Street.

Not a word was exchanged between the two. Police believe Beauregard was chosen at random.

“Tragically, Mr Beauregard’s life was ended by this horrendous act of violence and for no apparent reason. This was not a robbery attempt as we initially believed,” Smith said.

Family members said Beauregard is finalizing plans to begin his MBA in the winter and is proud of a leadership role in support of the Democratic Party during the 2020 presidential election

Philadelphia has a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in an unsolved murder.

Anyone with information should call the police at 215-686-3334/3335.
