Fear Of Investigation Motive in Suicide

Officials say fear of being part of a department investigation, may have been the motive for a Rusk county officer's suicide. Lt. Fred Dunlap was found dead Thursday morning at the Rusk County Sheriff's office, from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Investigators say Dunlap left a three-page suicide note to his wife.  In it, Dunlap said he believed he was being targeted as part of an investigation into possible civil rights abuses connected to other officers.  Investigators maintain, that Dunlap was not under investigation.
