Bridgeport Lawmaker Calls For Investigation Into Strip Club Death

Oct 5, 2020

A state lawmaker in Connecticut’s largest city wants an investigation into the death of a man killed at a former strip club run by a city council member.

State Senator Marilyn Moore asked the Chief State’s Attorney to take over investigations into the death. She said in light of fraud investigations in the local police department, she doubts a non-biased investigation can be conducted.

The man was shot inside the club, stumbled outside and was hit by a car, which then fled. The man’s family and the local chapter of the NAACP have also called for investigations.

The Keystone is run by City Council member Eneida Martinez. She told Hearst Connecticut Media the club has now been permanently closed.

The Bridgeport Police Department is the subject of a federal investigation into fraud committed by its former chief and another city official. Federal prosecutors say the chief rigged his own hiring process.
