A high-ranking New York City Police Department officer has died from an allegedly self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Deputy Chief Steven Silks was found in an unmarked patrol car wearing civilian clothes Wednesday evening, just one month before he would turn 63 and face mandatory retirement.
He allegedly shot himself in the head, with the gun reportedly discovered beside him.
He was very closely and heavily involved in the investigation of the Laptop seized from former Congressman Anthony Weiner which allegedly held volumes of Hillary Clinton email evidence on it.
A fellow officer told the New York Daily News that Silks was deeply committed to the job. Silks reportedly submitted his mandatory retirement papers the day before.
“His family lives out of state. He’s not married. He absolutely lived for the NYPD,” the officer said. “He was admired and loved by everybody he worked with. He was aged out. He’s the kind of guy who would have served until he died of natural causes.”
Sources within the NYPD said Silks had expressed sadness ahead of his mandatory departure from the force. He had served the force for 39 years.
Other sources however, say the Deputy Chief was heavily involved in the sex crimes investigation of former Democrat Congressman Anthony Weiner, and that the Chief PERSONALLY OVERSAW the evidence-gathering from a laptop computer seized from Weiner in that investigation.
That laptop is alleged to have contained numerous emails from Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State, and numerous files in a folder titled “Insurance Policy” which reportedly contained extraordinary details about child sex rings operated by – and for use of — high ranking government officials nationwide.
Ultimately that laptop had to be turned over by NYPD to the FBI, which allegedly “lost it.”
Rumors have abounded for years that NYPD top brass took copies of the hard drive because they were suspicious of the feds, and wanted to make certain the evidence was preserved.
One high ranking NYPD official, at the time the laptop was seized, told media outlets he was sickened by what was on that computer, and if the feds did not pursue the necessary investigations, HE would reveal what the laptop contained!
It is now believed that Deputy Chief Silks WAS THAT OFFICIAL, but no one is confirming or denying that information at this time.
Was Chief Silks “Arkancided?” The world is curious . . .
