BALTIMORE – Authorities say that an investigation into the death of a Baltimore detective, killed more than a month ago is still active.
Baltimore police spokesman T. J. Smith said Friday that tips are “still” and the unresolved matter is “still considered an active murder investigation.”
Smith also noted the FBI has still not responded to the Baltimore police commissioner, at the request of three weeks ago that the federal agency take over the investigation.
Detective Sean Suiter was shot in the head with his own gun on Nov. 15 while working in a high-crime neighborhood. He was due to testify the next day before a grand jury investigating indicted police colleagues.
Commissioner Kevin Davis has repeatedly said that his department has no reason to believe Suiter’s death was connected to his pending testimony.
