I will write this carefully.
The Washington State Patrol's 2nd part of their investigation into Tacoma Police Chief David Brame's murder-suicide of his wife Crystal has been released after much legal wrestling between Tacoma's News Tribune and Tacoma Police Union Local #26.
In the Washington State Patrol administrative investigation report a statement is given that notes in former Chief Brame's handwriting - that John Batiste, while Assistant Chief of Tacoma Police, (I will add "allegedly") had an incident that involved his (Batiste's) wife in Tacoma's Fircrest Police Station. According to that statement, Brame is said to have done his own investigation of Batiste's incident and a deal was made: Batiste resigns - with a severence package - and info regarding the incident would not be released. (According to the news at the time, Batiste resigned from Tacoma Police for "personal reasons.")
In another document from the Washington State Patrol's recently released investigation, Tacoma City Manager James Walton opted to not have the allegation investigated by the WSP.
