The Ameri Suicide – Signs of Things to Come
The Daily News is Reporting :
Federal indictments of NYPD loomed when Michael Ameri killed self
Fear of possible indictments and a shakeup of police brass from a corruption probe gripped the NYPD in the days before a high-ranking cop committed suicide, sources told the Daily News.
Inspector Michael Ameri, 44, came under increased scrutiny in the days before his death in the mushrooming scandal that involves a pair of businessmen with ties to Mayor de Blasio.
Indictments were expected “sometime soon,” with changes among the NYPD’s upper echelon at One Police Plaza likely by the end of May, according to one source.
Details of the investigation could become public as soon as Monday or Tuesday, the sources said.
Investigators questioned Ameri, head of the NYPD Highway Patrol Unit, for a second time this past week — and popped into the unit’s office Thursday in search of files, sources told The News.
