The one-time lead investigator in the Keiosha Felix case is suspended without pay, pending an internal investigation. Assistant Chief of Police, Lieutenant Gerald Credeur, is accused of violating the constitutional rights of at least two individuals who were arrested in connection with Felix's disappearance.
Credeur is accused of conducting illegal searches and seizures, providing false testimony and making at least two unlawful arrests.
When asked if any of the accusations against him were true, Credeur shook his head side-to-side and simply said, "No."
Duson Chief of Police Frank Andrew made the recommendation for suspension before the council Tuesday night. The decision was unanimous and is effective immediately, and will stay in place pending an internal investigation.
