A high-ranking Department of Investigation officer was found dead of a gunshot wound in his car in an Atlantic City casino parking lot, having apparently taken his own life, sources told a New York Criminal Lawyer. He had been reported missing by New York City police only hours before.
The 50-year-old investigator was the DOI’s inspector general, who’s job it was to look into operations of the city’s Health Department and Medical Examiner’s office.
A spokeswoman for the DOI did not confirm the identity of the dead investigator found in Atlantic City, but she did say to a New York Criminal Lawyer, “We are shocked and devastated at the loss of a wonderful colleague. This is a tragic and personal matter.”
The investigator was currently residing in Brooklyn, and had been reported missing by his family, sources told a New York Criminal Lawyer. The NYPD asked Atlantic City police to look for the investigator and described him as endangered or missing. They were also told to use caution, because the investigator carried a gun as part of his job with the DOI.
Two hours later, the Atlantic City police force were told by a security advisor at a casino that the investigator had been found dead in a tan Honda parked on the seventh level of the casino’s parking garage.
A handgun was found on the passenger side of the car, along with a bag, police told a Queens Criminal Lawyer. It is unknown why the investigator would take his own life.
