Panel says Baltimore detective likely took own life


An independent panel examining the death of a Baltimore detective has concluded Sean Suiter most likely took his own life, an attorney for his widow said.

Paul Siegrist, the lawyer for Nicole Suiter, told the Associated Press that she’s been notified of the board’s findings and is “shocked by their determination and very upset.”

Suiter, a York County resident and an 18-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, was shot in the head with his own gun last November, the day before he was to testify before a grand jury investigating police corruption.

His death had been ruled a homicide.

The independent board was created to look into Suiter’s death and also to review the department’s crime scene investigation tactics. Its report has not been released publicly.
