[US] CIA contractor, ex-cop Passaro & dv-accuser girlfriend, Police Det. Heart
David Passaro was in the Special Forces group at Fort Bragg - taking leave to become a contractor for the CIA in Afghanistan. Before that, he was a police officer in Hartford, Connecticut and fired less than six months into the job when he was arrested by the Connecticut State Police. There is no record of what the charges were. He is accused of beating an Afghani man who later "died." He was let out of jail Friday at the order of a federal judge to help his attorneys get ready for his trial. but was immediately re-arrested on 3 charges related to a domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend Wake Forest Detective Bonnie Heart. His former wife Kerry says that she was also abused and his former stepson says that he was also beaten as the dead Afghani man - with a flashlight.
