The news is out: [A Louisiana State Police trooper died Wednesday in an apparent suicide as his colleagues were searching his home as part of a criminal investigation, law enforcement officials told The Associated Press.
Three law enforcement officials familiar with the matter said Senior Trooper August “Gus” McKay shot himself after authorities arrived at his Washington Parish home. The officials were not authorized to discuss McKay’s death and spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity.
State Police Superintendent Col. Lamar Davis sent an email to troopers advising them of McKay’s death and noting he was under criminal investigation at the time but the agency declined to comment further on specifics of either the death or the probe.]
It’s better than August killing an unarmed, innocent negro.
