A doctor at Southfield Hospital who had not even seen Beauchamp declared him dead on the report of his First Responder (one of the first responders). First Responder told the doctor on the telephone that there is no movement in the patient for 30 minutes and there are no signs of life in it.
Beauchamp was not taken to hospital until an hour after that, until Cole Funeral Home (funeral home) in Detroit called 911. The state said funeral home staff saw her chest move while picking up the body at her Southfield home.
