[FL] Waiting on the investigation results for Cathy Moore's suicide.

 Cathy Moore
Daytona Beach Police Officer Chris(topher) Reeder says his girlfriend Cathryn Moore shot herself with his weapon while he was in the shower. Immediately, before there was an investigation, police were already saying it looks to be what Officer Reeder said it was.


There was only one article that I found on her death, and it has no comments, no votes. That's dissettling too.

She has a friend who is adamantly posting that Cathy had a disease (of depression) and this friend implies that settles it. If I had depression though I wouldn't want people to write me off if I was found shot to death. I don't follow the certainty. There is a disproportionate representation on this blog of the same thing over and over and over.

The one article that I'm aware of doesn't mention an outside agency taking the case so unless something new has happened, Officer Reeder's friends and collegues are conducting the investigation.

    [Excerpts] It's been five months since 31-year-old Cathryn Moore died in the apartment of her boyfriend Daytona Beach policeman Chris Reeder. At the time, police officials said Moore committed suicide with Reeder's service weapon while the 38-year-old officer showered for work that February morning. Earlier this week, after repeated questions by The Daytona Beach News-Journal regarding the case, police revealed that Reeder has been under criminal investigation. That was news to Moore's family in Delaware, who said on Thursday that they have not heard anything about the case since their daughter died Feb. 6... "No one has called us about anything or told us anything about a criminal investigation"...While autopsy results have not been released on Moore, who lived in Port Orange, police said preliminary findings show she shot herself...At the time, at least 10 officers responded to the apartment, a police report states. That same report shows that Reeder told investigators Moore was upset with him that morning, but he said he didn't know why.

    [Excerpts] A policeman whose girlfriend killed herself with his service weapon was issued a written warning for leaving his gun unsecured, an internal affairs report shows... The case took months to investigate because there were some obstacles along the way. They included accusations the Police Department's death investigation was not thorough. Another was Moore's ex-boyfriend Harry Oakley --a Daytona Beach cop -- became involved in the investigation somehow and was warned for it by the police chief, records show. Regardless, the 39-year-old Reeder has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in the case, police said... It's unknown from police reports how long Moore and Reeder were dating. But according to his statements to investigators, Moore was emotionally unstable and threatened suicide any time things went awry in the relationship. Moore's threats of suicide had gotten so bad Reeder threatened to have her hospitalized under the state's Baker Act, he told police. The Baker Act allows a person be taken into protective custody and placed under observation for at least 72 hours when they are a danger to themselves or others...

  4. Where's Cathryn's people? I'd like to talk to someone.

  5. To the alleged woman who tried to comment - don't bother to try again.

    Currently involved in multiple domestic violence incidents in Port Orange.

  8. There is not one single 'domestic violence incident' that he is involved in. That is a false claim. Look it up. Know your facts before your libelous posts.

  9. Be very careful of your accusations 'keyboard commando' that remains 'anonymous'. At least have the sack to post your name on your libelous comments. Trolls like you belong in that cold dark basement of your uncles house when mommy and daddy didn't want you anymore. Air your concerns in person since you clearly know where to locate him.

  10. What was Officer Chris Reeder's" routine/daily/nightly normal Partol route during 2001-2008?
