Another NYPD officer suicide, the 8th in 2019
4 Comments

Another New York Police Department officer has died by suicide — becoming the eighth to do so this year and the sixth since June 5 — a law enforcement official has revealed.

The 35-year-old was a seven-year veteran who temporarily was assigned to a detail surrounding Yankee Stadium.

The officer left a note behind, the law enforcement official said. He was off-duty at the time, two law enforcement sources said.

Of the eight NYPD officer suicides, six have happened since June. The recent cluster has rattled the department, with leaders trying to come up with a way to tell the rank and file that it’s OK to ask for help.

Over the past five years, the NYPD has averaged between four and five suicides a year, Police Commissioner James O’Neill said in June at a news conference called after the department surpassed its average.

    While, there are certainly an unusual amount of suicides within the NYPD, in this case it's something totally different. It's being reported that the latest death was actually a hit, because the cop was allegedly the insider who posted the info about Epstein's death on 4chan before it became public knowledge.

    "You just gotti wonder," with the $100,000,000 Hit on Epstein, "What other Payoffs Demand Officers Commit Suicide with a Little Help from their Friends?"
