|~ Slim to Lincoln.|
Walter Beaumont is the main antagonist in Mafia III DLC Faster, Baby!. He is the racist sheriff of Sinclair Parish who uses his connections and power to keep the people in fear, and later attempts to cover up his crimes. He is defeated by Charles Laveau, his daughter Roxy, and their ally Lincoln Clay.
He is voiced by John Edward Lee.
Walter was working as sheriff in Sinclair Parish. As a white supremacist, he runs his Sheriff's Department as though Jim Crow is still the law of the land. He and his deputies operate with absolute impunity and use their power to keep the population of his town white through intimidation, harassment, and even murder. He has influential friends in state government and the Southern Union, who fully support his efforts, financing his upcoming bid for re-election.
In 1967, Charles Laveau and his activist movement began building a civil rights case against Beaumont and his police department, and gathered evidence and witness testimony to present at the federal court. Slim managed to get the folder holding his evidence by killing Ezekiel Dandridge, who had stopped to call Laveau on the evidence he gathered. Beaumont discovered the folder, and put the Parish on high alert so he could track down the witnesses, and kill anyone who tried to stop him. Charles' daughter, Roxy and their new found ally, Lincoln Clay started causing trouble to rescue the witnesses. Despite this, Beaumont learned of Lincoln's location at the De Costa family farm, and decided to capture him.
Beaumont managed to capture Lincoln, and had him tortured by his friends while mocking him and his people for trying to get him exposed. However, Lincoln is freed by Roxy, and Slim panics and runs off with the folder. Slim is chased by the two across the Parish, but he ran off the road while his deputies attempt to stop Lincoln and Roxy. Cornered, Beaumont laments how he always thought he would die on his front porch, and tells Lincoln and Roxy to kill him. The two refuse however, stating that having him arrested and his crimes exposed will make changes. In a last effort to mock the two, Slim declares he knows powerful people that would get him out, but he's knocked unconscious and turned over to the authorities.
Arrest and DeathBeaumont's arrest and conviction became nationwide news, and Walter revealed names and implicated over a dozen conspirators in the Sinclair Parish Department. He also named members of the Southern Union, a white supremacist organization, some of whom were in positions of power in the Lousiana legislature and had bolstered him politically. Walter Beaumont was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for the murder of Ezekiel Dandridge. He did not get the maximum sentence on account of his cooperation with authorities in helping to root out the influence of the Southern Union for state politics. During much of his imprisonment, Beaumont was isolated from the other prisoners, spending much of his hours in solitary confinement, which the guards declared was for his own safety. After spending 12 years in prison, Beaumont became eligible for parole. His parole hearing was approved, and he was released from prison where he bought a house in an unknown location, presumably to retire in obscurity.
In 1989, Walter Beaumont died when he was shot point blank while sitting on the front porch of his house. To date, no one has ever stood trial for Beaumont's murder, and there has been insufficient evidence to prepare charges against anyone.

- He uses a custom revolver that isn't available in the game.
- When it looks as if he is going to be killed by Lincoln Clay, a defeated Slim admits he always thought he would "die on the front porch of his home". Ironically, his prediction came true 21 years later, in an absolute literal sense, although he likely had a more figurative idea.
