U.S. Capitol Police Officer Dead From Suicide

A US Capitol Police officer reportedly died from a  suicide on Saturday.

Officer Howard Liebengood, 51, died while off-duty on Saturday, the USCP announced in a statement.

The death comes three days after the chaos that erupted at the United States Capitol.

It is unknown whether Liebengood was working on that day or whether the events last week at the Capitol had anything to do with his tragic death.

Former Secretary of Labor and current Berkeley Professor Robert Reich wrote that he died from the “insurrection” which is extremely reckless and unfounded at this time.

Liebengood had been with the department since April 2005 and was assigned to the Senate Division.

The Daily Mail reported on the death and Journalist Jake Sherman has confirmed from several sources.

Liebengood was reported to be the son of former Sergeant at Arms Howard S. Liebengood, who died in 2005.
