Salacious news about the Detroit Police Department never ends. The latest revelation is that the mayor's office and the force's Internal Affairs Division are investigating a possible link between police officials and two sex clubs.
Underage girls and illegal alcohol sales are involved, Charlie LeDuff reports on Fox2, citing documents:
Police officials from the Central District, the vice and homicide squads, knew that a sex club was operating at 300 East Milwaukee in Midtown as far back as October 2010. That's when the ex-husband of the alleged madam of the sex club was murdered in the back alley trying to get in through the back door. His murder remains unsolved and his ex-wife continues to be a suspect in his death.
Nevertheless, the club remained open and continued to operate until about January of this year.
Now city officials are looking at another nightspot a block away on East Baltimore, LeDuff says.
This club was raided in September by the sheriff's department. Deputies found upscale pleasure rooms, narcotics, showers and an underage, 16-year-old prostitute. . . . Undercover deputies found at least one Detroit police officer frequenting the joint.
