Dec. 21, 2018
The veteran Cincinnati police officer who was found dead in Eden Park on Thursday appears to have committed suicide, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.
Sgt. Arthur Schultz's preliminary autopsy findings indicate a single gunshot wound to the head and neck area that appears to be self-inflicted, coroner's office representatives said.
Schultz's body was located by his fellow officers in a vehicle at 2084 Eden Park Drive on Thursday afternoon, officials said. He was a 28-year veteran of the Cincinnati Police Department.
"CPD shares in the pain and tremendous loss of Sergeant Schultz as he will be tremendously missed," Police Chief Eliot Isaac said in a statement after identifying the officer.
Before identifying Shultz, Isaac and Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco addressed the media in Mount Adams, near the scene.
