Last week we told you about APD officer Levi Chavez whose wife had apparently committed suicide after finding out that husband Levi was having an affair (read it here). KRQE News 13 reported a few days later that investigators told them that the case wasn't "clear-cut" and that they were taking an "extra look" (KRQE News 13).
Today we got word from our Eyes that the "extra look" has resulted in increasing suspicion that Mrs. Chavez's death was not caused by a self-inflicted gun shot wound. In addition, the Eyes have it that there are questions about officer Chavez's statement and his actions prior to and following the incident. Investigators are currently waiting (along with the 5th floor) for the results of forensic tests on evidence taken from the scene.
APD's top brass is said to be nervously awaiting information that could further shake the confidence in the leadership of a department that is already suffering from one too many black eyes.
