The leaders of the Independent Review Board hired by the Baltimore Police Department to investigate Det. Sean Suiter’s mystifying death last November said today that their findings “have built a compelling case” that Suiter committed suicide the evening of Nov. 15, 2017, at Bennett Place.
Almost equally compelling is the narrative that police officials misled the public about the entire investigation in those first hours and days afterward. Shortly after Suiter was shot, then-Commissioner Kevin Davis told the world the veteran homicide detective was mortally wounded by a “cold, callous killer” while following up on a 2016 triple murder. He said that individual and Suiter had conversed briefly, that the shooter may have been wounded himself in an ensuing struggle and that police were “canvassing doctor’s offices and hospitals,” the report noted.
Under pressure from city and federal lawmakers, Baltimore Police Commissioner has asked the FBI to take the reigns on the investigation of the killing of Det. Sean Suiter.
Det. Sean Suiter “unwittingly” became part of a scheme in which corrupt Baltimore police officers planted heroin on two suspects following a deadly high-speed chase through West Baltimore in 2010, Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said today. This month, seven years later, Suiter was shot dead the day before he was set to testify against one of those corrupt officers.
Thanksgiving eve featured a couple bombshells from the Baltimore Police Department, including the news that Det. Sean Suiter was due to testify in a federal case involving indicted Baltimore police officers one day after he was murdered in Harlem Park.
