FBI won’t take over investigation of detective’s slaying

BALTIMORE (AP) — The FBI won’t take over an investigation into the homicide of a Baltimore city detective who was slain amid a corruption investigation.
Detective Sean Suiter was shot in the head with his own weapon on Nov. 15, a day before he was to testify before a federal grand jury investigating wrongdoing by indicted officers.
Police Commissioner Kevin Davis announced the decision Wednesday. He said FBI Assistant Director Stephen Richardson told him in a letter that FBI officials have seen no evidence to suggest Suiter’s death was “directly connected” to the federal corruption investigation. Consequently, he said, the FBI believed it was “prudent” for the police department to continue leading the inquiry. Davis sent a request on Dec. 1 asking the FBI to take over.
There have been no arrests, despite a $215,000 reward.
