Special investigator in Daniel Prude probe says Singletary is not cooperating
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The special investigator appointed to investigate the City of Rochester’s response to the death of Daniel Prude says former RPD chief La’Ron Singletary is not cooperating with the probe.
In an update provided Monday, Independent Investigator Andrew G. Celli said Singletary was served his subpoena on Oct. 5, calling for him to produce documents and provide testimony relevant to the investigation.
Celli’s update said Singletary said through his attorney that he isn’t willing to provide documents or give testimony.
The update said, “Chief Singletary’s refusal to cooperate in the Investigation, while very unfortunate, will not materially impede our progress. Even as we actively consider remedies for such non-compliance (including, but not limited to, court enforcement), our work will continue, drawing on the many other sources of documentary evidence and testimony that are available to us.”
Celli’s update also said his office received “hundreds of thousands” of electronic documents including emails, cell phone records and city records from the Mayor’s Office, Law Department, Rochester Police Department and City Council.
