Aurora police lieutenant retires after suspicious crash, but chief won’t take questions

FOX31: The Aurora police chief reneged on a promise to answer questions about the departure of a high-ranking officer, who crashed a city-issued vehicle and admitted to drinking beer before it happened.

A spokesman for the Aurora Police Department told the Problem Solvers that Chief Vanessa Wilson would talk once the investigation into Lt. Martin Garland was over.

The investigation into Garland officially ended Tuesday, Dec. 28, when Garland chose to retire rather than face termination for a case the Problem Solvers first inquired about on Dec. 1.

But instead of being willing to answer questions, the department emailed this investigative reporter on Dec. 29, simply stating, “We will not be providing any on-camera interviews regarding this matter.”
