Victim of Olathe slaying was live-in care provider

An Olathe man is in jail as prosecutors investigate the slaying of a live-in nurse at his Olathe home on Wednesday.

Authorities found the body of Susanne Goslin, 54, when they responded to a call in the 1300 block of East 153rd Street shortly after 4:30 p.m.

Police arrested the 59-year-old man 10 minutes later and took him to the Johnson County jail, where he remained Thursday booked on suspicion of first-degree murder. He was not immediately charged, and it was not clear how events unfolded the day before.

“We’re still doing a lot of stuff on this,” Olathe police spokesman Sgt. Grant Allen said Thursday.

Police did not say how Goslin died or how she came to work at the Olathe home.

It was not known how long she had been working at the residence, where she was caring for a woman with medical needs.

Goslin’s friends were stunned by her death. Several of them worked at the Kansas City VA Medical Center, according to her Facebook page, where she also said she understood French and Spanish.

State records show that Goslin had been a registered nurse in Kansas for more than 15 years.

She had worked as a nurse at the University of Kansas Hospital from 2004 to 2010, a hospital spokeswoman said.

One friend who went to nursing school with Goslin 30 years ago said she was good with her patients and concerned about them.
