Interesting. You touched on some points, though she was far from a dirty cop, in my opinion of course.
This could be a potential scandal brewing for the LAPD on the scale of the Rampart Scandal given her position in narcotics.
Think of potential scandal on a MUCH larger scale, perhaps a local investigation with national and international implications, involving high level corruption with ties to American crime syndicates, Mexican and South American drug cartels, Asian drug exports, extortion, murder and more...
Just a theory, of course.
On December 20, 1985, these and other charges were laid out in an Associated Press article after an extensive investigation which included interviews with "officials from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Customs Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Costa Rica's Public Security Ministry, as well as rebels and Americans who work with them." Five American Contra supporters who worked with the rebels confirmed the charges, noting that "two Cuban-Americans used armed rebel troops to guard coc aine at clandestine airfields in northern Costa Rica. They identified the Cuban-Americans as members of the 2506 Brigade, an anti-Castro group that participated in the 1961 Bay of Pigs attack on Cuba. Several also said they supplied information about the smuggling to U.S. investigators." One of the Americans "said that in one ongoing operation, the coc aine is unloaded from planes at rebel airstrips and taken to an Atlantic coast port where it is concealed on shrimp boats that are later unloaded in the Miami area."
Facing a barrage of calls from the media and the public, the Sacramento County Coroner's Office issued a statement Tuesday confirming that former investigative reporter Gary Webb committed suicide with two gunshots to the head.
"The cause of death was determined to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the head," the coroner's statement said.

Below is the complete "Dark Alliance," series and an investigative report that puts some meat to your speculation about the possibility of police officer knowing way to much about her masters' dirty laundry and as result taking her own life or being murdered in the process.

This thread is retarded just like your top secret style "i'm a secret agent" "on the run" "important type" style of posting. It got old REAL quick! Just talk like normal and quite the BS....
She killed herself...ok
Bottom line if the job is THAT stressful or you feel your not liking the things your seeing...TRANSFER to a different division or leave the LAPD and go work somewhere else.
And if she WAS dirty then so be it. Bottom line she took the cowards way out....this is NOT news worthy, or worth ATS time.....
Before her suicide, Los Angeles Police Department Detective Susan Clemmer had aced a job interview with Gangs and Narcotics Captain Kevin McCarthy, leaving him deeply impressed with her education, passion and talent.
He arrived at his office the next day to find a letter on his desk.
“It was from Susan, apologizing because she felt she had let me down in the (interview),” McCarthy recalled to more than 100 people gathered at Clemmer’s memorial service at the Eternal Valley mortuary chapel on Thursday. “She really thought she did a bad job in the interview, when, in fact, she couldn’t have done better.”
His was one of several stories told by colleagues and relatives that painted a picture of a sensitive and caring but guarded woman who always put others first and poured herself into her work.
Clemmer, 41, of Valencia, killed herself on July 6 in the lobby of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. It stunned those who knew her.
“She would never tell people if she was having a problem,” said Detective Lisa Wong, a close friend and detective in Clemmer’s unit.
