Is a 3-year police misconduct investigation connected to the murder of a federal drug informant?

Published: Updated:

A cloud of secrecy has surrounded an investigation that led to four Fort Myers Police Department officers to be placed on administrative leave three years ago. Nobody will speak about it, and few will even acknowledge it – until now.

The president of the Gulf Coast Police Benevolent Association said the officers are under investigation as part of a federal case against an accused drug trafficker who is charged with ordering the murder of a drug informant.

But, he says there’s no evidence those officers are involved in the case.
