NY: Former NYPD cop kills himself as FBI closes in

Source: New York Post

“A hulking former NYPD cop blew himself away Wednesday in front of FBI agents who were about to arrest him as part of a quadruple homicide and cocaine conspiracy, police sources told The Post on Wednesday. Gerard Benderoth, 48 — nicknamed ‘White Rhino’ from his days as a strongman competitor — killed himself on a quiet suburban road in Rockland County around 8:20 a.m. after feds pulled him over. … US Attorney Preet Bharara had already busted Benderoth’s retired Westchester cop pal Nicholas Tartaglione in December — and slapped him with four murder charges along with drug conspiracy.” [editor’s note: That’s odd. Usually Bharara IS the corrupt cop, not BUSTING the corrupt cop – TLK] (03/08/17)
