LAPD Detective Investigating Derrick Rose’s Alleged Rape Case Found Dead

Shocking news!

The LAPD detective investigating the gang rape allegations against basketball star Derrick Rose (pictured above) was found dead at a Whittier, California home on Tuesday.

According to new reports, 44-year-old Nadine Hernandez was discovered to have suffered from a single gunshot wound when police responded to a call about an attempted suicide. She was then transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police are currently looking into her death, telling The Los Angeles Times:

“At this time there are no signs of foul play and this incident is being investigated as a suicide. However, this is an ongoing investigation.”

A firearm was recovered at the scene.

The LAPD also made a statement regarding her work with Rose’s case, explaining:

“At this point there is no indication that her case work had any connection to her death. The Rose investigation will continue unimpeded.”

You may recall, a letter written by Hernandez confirmed the investigation involving the 28-year-old was “current and open” as she also revealed the victim’s name would be kept confidential throughout the legal proceedings.

Wow. Our thoughts are with Nadine’s family and friends.
