In this bonus episode of True Okee, we examine the death of Okeechobee County Sheriff John Collier by speaking to a former deputy and learning what it was like inside the Sheriff’s Office in the aftermath of the loss of their leader.
After investigators quickly ruled that the sheriff committed suicide due to sinus problems, many in the community didn’t buy it. Questionable decisions made at the crime scene and in the months afterwards helped a cloud of uncertainty linger around the case.
