Sacramento, CA — Sgt. Kevin Steele, 56, was a whistleblower officer, who, according to multiple sources, attempted to expose corruption, evidence planting, and murder — covered up as a suicide — in his department. Instead of taking his claims and investigating them, however, Steele was barred from the grounds and placed under investigation. He was recently found dead in August and his death ruled a suicide.
“At every single juncture where I discovered something that resembled corruption, wrongdoing, exploitation, fraudulency and/or breeches of trust, I ALWAYS alerted supervisory staff and institutional leadership, as that is what I thought was the desire of both the administrative staff and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation,” Steele wrote in a memo in January to the prison’s warden. “However, it would appear that is NOT the desire of either entity.”
