Federal Prosecutor Kills His Wife in Apparent Murder-Suicide, California Authorities Say

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS MARCH 10, 2020

(GRANITE BAY, Calif.) — A federal prosecutor in California fatally shot his wife before killing himself Sunday in their home, authorities said.

Timothy Delgado, 43, was an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of California. He shot his 45-year-old wife Tamara Delgado in a murder-suicide in Granite Bay, according to a Placer County Sheriff’s Office statement.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento said Monday it is cooperating with the investigation and referred questions to the sheriff’s office. Delgado appears to have prosecuted narcotics and firearms cases, a search of the office’s website shows.

Tamara Delgado’s mother called the sheriff’s office to check on the couple, bringing deputies to their home, according to spokeswoman Angela Musallam. She would not say if there had been other calls to the residence or provide further information.

Granite Bay is about 30 miles (48. kilometers) northeast of Sacramento.

Prison whistleblower who exposed unsafe conditions in Arizona facility found dead

Police in Arizona said her death is being treated as a suicide.

By Christina Carrega
March 11, 2020

An Arizona correctional sergeant who blew the whistle on corruption and unsafe conditions inside a jail facility was found dead in an apparent suicide, officials confirmed to ABC News.

Gabriela Contreras risked her position at the former Lewis Corrections Department in Buckeye last April when she leaked surveillance videos that revealed multiple jail units had cell doors that did not lock properly.

Contreras initially turned over the videos and altered documentation regarding the broken locks anonymously, but came forward in an exclusive interview with ABC15 a month later.

The whistleblower was suspended for a week when she was caught downloading the videos.

"I had enough," Contreras said during the May 2019 interview when asked why she downloaded and leaked the footage. "Because it’s a crime, what they were doing: allowing this to happen, allowing staff to get hurt, and not doing anything about it."

Contreras also wrote to Gov. Doug Ducey on May 15, 2019 after his office launched an investigation. The jail staffers were asked by the governor's office to make comprehensive reports about each broken cell door, but were forced to make modifications to those documents by their superior.

"The deputy warden was outraged that we reported all of the deficiencies we found," Contreras wrote. "He told us that we were only to count the cell doors that opened on their own when the padlock was removed -- and that we should not have included cell doors that opened with a slight juggle or push or be caused to register an Unauthorized Access alert on the computer on this report."

Contreras warned the governor that the deputy warden was trying to minimize or "present his office with false and/or misleading information and falsifying public records," she wrote.

Because of Contreras' fight, over 1,000 cell doors were repaired and replaced, the prison took on new leadership and was renamed the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry.

During the late evening of March 8, Goodyear Police Department responded to a "domestic disturbance" call at Contreras' home. When the officers entered her residence, Contreras was in her bedroom "unresponsive, with an apparent self-inflicted gun-shot wound," according to a spokeswoman with the police department.

Despite "lifesaving measures" taken, Contreras was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The Goodyear Police Department considers this a suicide and next of kin has been notified," the spokeswoman said.

The Maricopa County's Medical Examiner's office ruled Contreras' manner of death as a suicide caused by a "gunshot wound of head," according to online records.

"Our beloved friend Gabriela Contreras was taken too soon ... a loving and caring mother, daughter, and friend. A passionate person who was not afraid to stand for what she believed in," wrote a family friend on an online funeral fundraiser page.

Attempts to reach the family of Contreras were not successful on Wednesday.

German state finance minister Thomas Schäfer found dead

Police suspect Thomas Schäfer died by suicide after his body was found on train tracks near Wiesbaden. He was the finance minister for the state of Hesse, where Germany's financial center Frankfurt lies.

https://www.dw.com/en/german-state-finance-minister-thomas-sch%C3%A4fer-found-dead/a-52948976?fbclid=IwAR210yleoAiJWcPAV7ikJof8DjdEalj1dKGwdrR4Eo7UV-wuL3U_L5yuQwk

The body of a man identified as Thomas Schäfer, the finance minister of the German state of Hesse, was found on a high-speed train line in the town of Hochheim between Frankfurt and Mainz, police confirmed Saturday.

The presence of a body on the tracks was first reported by witnesses to paramedics, who were unable to initially identify the remains due to the extent of the injuries.

Investigators said an investigation on the scene confirmed the identity of the man as Schäfer and that the death was likely a suicide. Police did not immediately release further details of the case.

The politician apparently left a note before taking his own life, German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported, citing sources close to the investigation. The note, according to the report, referenced Schäfer's reasons for taking the step.

According to media in the state of Hesse, the 54-year-old regularly appeared in public in recent days, for example, to inform the public about financial assistance during the coronavirus crisis.

Schäfer had "considerable worries" over COVID-19

Schäfer was a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's center-right Christian Democrats (CDU). He had been active in Hessian state politics for more than two decades and was finance minister for almost 10 years.

Germany's financial capital, Frankfurt, lies in Hesse and is the state's biggest city.

Schäfer had been widely expected to succeed state premier, Volker Bouffier, if he decided not to stand for re-election in 2023.

In a statement, Bouffier said that the state's leadership has received the news with "sadness and disbelief."

Bouffier also said that Schäfer had been living under considerable worry and stress because of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

"His main concern was whether he could manage to fulfill the huge expectations of the population, especially in terms of financial aid," Bouffier said on Sunday. "For him, there was clearly no way out. He was disappointed and so he had to leave us. That has shocked us, has shocked me."

"Our sincere condolences go to his closest relatives," he added.

Outgoing CDU chief Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said Schäfer's sudden death "shocked me, shocked all of us" in the party. "It has hit us and left us sad and stunned," she wrote on Twitter.

Another death attributable to the ECB's "sound money" policies.

"His main concern was whether he could manage to fulfill the huge expectations of the population, especially in terms of financial aid,
"Frankly, I don't think it's a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous."
