CHICAGO (CBS) — A new report in the death of Daniel Prude says the city’s mayor and several city officials worked to keep details of the case secret for months and even lied to the public about what they knew. The Chicago man was visiting family in Rochester, New York, last month when he died in police custody.
Prude’s children say they had to wait months to find out what happened to their father leading up to his arrest and death. This report from Special Council Investigators outlines why with interference, stalling and misleading information from Rochester’s Mayor on down.
