UPDATE: Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly confirms suicide was Pigott.

He said that Lieutenant Pigott went to Floyd Bennett Field alone, early in the morning, and entered a locker room, where he gained access to a weapon that was not his: a 9-millimeter Glock. Then, he shot himself in the head, spokesman Paul J. Browne said. His body was discovered in the locker room by a service member who was coming on duty at about 6 a.m.

Lt. Michael Pigott, the NYC police lieutenant who gave the order to fire a Taser stun gun at a man who then fell to his death in Brooklyn, committed suicide at Floyd Bennett Field early on Thursday.  Pigott, a 21-year veteran of the force, had been placed on modified assignment without his gun and badge after he gave the order to a sergeant to fire the Taser at a Bedford-Stuyvesant man, Iman (Inman?) Morales.

Police will only officially confirm that “a” lieutenant took his own life. But he’s been identified by other police sources as Lieutenant Michael Pigott.

Police Sergeant Has Wife Murdered, Hangs Himself

September 27, 2008

Detroit police sergeant David Cobb hired hitman Vincent Smothers, and accomplice Marzell Black, to kill Rose Cobb, his wife.  Smothers shot Rose Cobb as she waited in her car on the day after Christmas, while Sgt. Cobb shopped in a CVS drug store.  Smothers was caught and confessed that Cobb had hired him to kill his wife.  The cost?  $1,500.00.  And the story goes that Cobb was banging Marzell Black’s mother, Sheila Black.

Cobb was arrested, too, but released due to lack of evidence.  Still, he was suspended during the investigation.  

As investogators made progress against Cobb, he decided to hang himself in a Sterling Heights, MI park.

Apparently, his hanging has nothing to to with being accused of soliciting sex and texting dirty messages to a 15-year old girl in 2006.  He was found not guilty.
