Police officer ‘not at fault’ in Aurora suicide

By Geeky Swedes · December 12th, 2008 · 1 Comment

On November 3rd, a man fell to his death from the Aurora Bridge just as an officer made a last-ditch attempt to handcuff him to a safety line.

A Seattle Police investigation concluded this week that the death was indeed a suicide, not an “in-custody” death.
