It is with a heavy heart that I share that we are conducting a death investigation into the tragic loss of an active Chicago Police Department member. The member was discovered inside a residence located in the 22nd police district. The cause and manner of death will be determined by the Medical Examiner; however, at this time, the death appears to be by suicide.
As we grieve the loss of a dedicated and decorated 15-year department member, I want to extend my deepest condolences to his friends and family. I know the CPD community is mourning, and that grief is deep and long-lasting. I know that it’s hard to take care of yourself and to reach out. I also know that we need to do more to support each other – and we will.
