Lawyer raising new questions about slain Baltimore detective
BALTIMORE – A lawyer is raising fresh questions about a 2010 incident that a slain Baltimore detective was involved in.
Attorney Steven Silverman represents two men whose federal convictions have been overturned after they spent years in prison based on 2010 police work done by allegedly corrupt officers.
Silverman alleges that Detective Sean Suiter, then an officer, was driving an unmarked vehicle that intentionally rear-ended one of his client's car.
The 2010 crash led to a high-speed chase that resulted in a fatality.
Silverman says the slain detective's actions in 2010 should be investigated along with the other officers.
Suiter was shot the day before he was to testify before a grand jury probing wrongdoing by indicted officers. No arrest has been made in Suiter's killing.
