Go Time: Cleveland Cops Who Mistook Body for Dead Dear Await Word on Possible Charges

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - More action in the I-90 murder investigation could take place as early as today, but this time it's the police officers who are facing charges.

Prosecutors will decide whether or not the two Cleveland cops who thought Angel Bradley-Crockett's body was deer should be charged.

Patrolmen Matthew Prince and David Muniz were dispatched April 5th to check out a dead body on the Interstate after a 911 call came in.

According to the cruiser's GPS, the officers drove down the highway at about 50 mph, did not stop to get out and told dispatch to send ODOT because it was a deer.

Three more calls and two hours later that "so-called" deer turned out to be the 28-year old west side woman.

The officers have apologized, but Bradley-Crockett's family wants charges filed against them.

30-year-old Stephon Davis has been charged in Bradley-Crockett's death. Police say he beat, strangled and dumped  body under the West 44th Street overpass.

He could get the death penalty.
