William Harvey died by apparent suicide while he was left alone in a police interview room on April 3. Now, five officers who were connected to the 60-year-old’s case have been fired, authorities say.
Officers had apparently been questioning Harvey about an aggravated assault they were investigating. They left the room, and, when they returned, they found Harvey dead. He had wounds from his shoelaces around his neck, investigators said.
“While we cannot provide justice for the Harvey family, we can ensure accountability for the policies we did not follow and the actions we did not take,” said the mayor of Savannah. “I do not believe there was malicious intent on the part of the officers involved, but the result was deadly. And for that, I believe the decision to terminate was appropriate.”
