    I don't remember reading about this previously. Sgt Steil was shot in the shoulder while pursuing a carjacking suspect. He was expected to be discharged from the hospital the day he developed a blood clot and died.

    It's such a tragedy that he was shot in the first place. Should have never happened to begin with. The second tragedy is dying from a preventable blood clot. The chances would have dropped by 95% if they had performed a clotting time test when he was admitted to the hospital. Then he could have been on a daily aspirin if the doc deemed it to be helpful. Ans his age had nothing to do with it. I've heard about this happening to people as young as 19.

    Ummm, daily aspirin doesn't work that fast, and clotting times are skewed after a penetrating injury. You also do not anticoagulate a patient immediately after a penetrating injury. Not every clot is preventable.

    I realize it isn't recommended after a serious injury, and I do understand not every clot is preventable. But, say 48 hrs later, it might be a good idea to do a clotting time test. It's terrible that clots cannot be detected when they are very small, and those are usually the troublemakers! Just seems like we hear all too often of death R/T a blood clot. Thanks for reminding me I'm a nurse, and I wasn't thinking like one! Death from things we cannot detect is so frustrating! And I think about leaving a wife and two young boys. I lost my first husband in a motorcycle accident, and our boys were 2yrs, 8mo, and 10mo.

    I'm sorry for the loss of your first husband, glf. You can certainly identify with the heartache Officer Steil's family is experiencing.

    The funeral for Capt. Kenneth Steil was held on Friday and a vast number of the city’s officers were in attendance. The sad event was livestreamed across multiple platforms.

    Man accused of murdering Detroit cop to get more psych tests - January 9th

    http://www.freep.com/story/news/loca...ency/96354946/

    A man accused of killing Detroit police Capt. Kenneth Steil will undergo more psychological evaluations after two examinations came to different conclusions on his competency to stand trial.

    A doctor with the state's forensic center found 21-year-old Marquise Cromer incompetent to stand trial last year, and prosecutors sought an independent evaluation.

    That psychiatrist found Cromer to be competent, Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Molly Kettler said during a hearing in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice today.

    Cromer's attorney, Sanford Schulman, requested an independent evaluation during the hearing before 36th District Judge Deborah Lewis Langston. He also will be re-evaluated by the initial doctor from the forensic center, Kettler said.

    He is scheduled to return to court on Feb. 16 where the results of the latest reports are expected to be discussed.
    Detroit man accused of threatening cops pleads guilty - January 11th

    A Detroit man accused of threatening to kill police officers who were attending a colleague’s funeral accepted a plea deal Wednesday that could send him to jail for 15-21 months.

    Deshawn Maurice Lanton, 21, plead guilty in U.S District Court in Detroit on Wednesday to using the internet to transmit a threat against law enforcement.

    Lanton, an ex-convict, admitted that he made a threatening post on a Facebook Live video from WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) as the station covered the funeral of Sgt. Kenneth Steil on Sept. 23. The Detroit police sergeant had died from his injuries after he was shot in the line of duty.

    Lanton is scheduled to be sentenced May 10.

    Man charged with killing DPD Sgt. Ken Steil smiles, laughs in court

    So many said he was mentally ill and questioned whether he competent to stand trial, but the case against Marquise Cromer is moving forward.

    Cromer was evaluated for competency. Ultimately he was deemed competent, but his behavior in court was strange. He smiled, made faces, and laughed during the hearing.

    Despite his behavior, the judge ruled he will stand trial.

    “Defendant charged with homicide of a peace or correction officer - murder in first degree.”
    'That's my daddy,' slain police officer's son says after seeing memorial plaque

    Two sons of slain Detroit Police Officer Kenneth "The Shark" Steil pulled away the cover of a plaque etched with a picture of their father inside Detroit Police Headquarters Thursday.

    "That's my daddy," said Steil's youngest son, Alexander. Alexander's big brother, William, appeared to bend in to look more closely at the image of his dad as Detroit Police Chief James Craig touched the boys' shoulders and told them their father was an "American Hero."

    The plaques commemorating two Detroit police killed in the line of duty in 2016, Steil and Police Officer Myron Jarrett, were hung on the memorial wall at Detroit police headquarters.

    Man sentenced to 15 months for threatening to blow up Steil funeral

    http://www.macombdaily.com/article/M...NEWS/170609514

    A 21-year-old Detroit man was ordered to serve 15 months in prison for threatening to blow up hundreds of police officers at a funeral service in St. Clair Shores for a fallen Detroit police officer.

    Deshawn M. Lanton received the sentence Friday from Judge Sean Cox of U.S. District Court in Detroit after Lanton pleaded guilty in January to “false information and hoaxes,” punishable by up to five years in prison.
    Steil, 46, of St. Clair Shores, died Sept. 17, five days after being shot with a shotgun in the upper torso by a criminal suspect during a search for the suspect near Seven Mile Road and Hayes roads in Detroit. Marquise Cromer, 21, is charged with Steil’s murder. He faces an Aug. 28 trial in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit.
