Chicago officer found dead after rape allegations surface

A 26 year veteran of the Chicago Police Dept who was the subject of an investigation was found dead this morning

Police confirm officer 48-year-old Edgar Neal died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Last night, a 17-year-old girl came with her family to Area South police headquarters alleging Neal raped her at his south side home early Sunday morning.  She was allegedly taken there by the off-duty cop and one of her friends, another 17-year-old girl.

The high school junior says she woke up and Officer Neal was sexually assaulting her.  She told her teacher Tuesday who called police.  The teen was examined at Roseland Hospital and then went to Area South, along with the other teenager, where she was questioned by detectives and internal affairs.
Chicago police only issued a statement saying “We cannot comment on an ongoing internal investigation.”
