A federal grand jury Friday indicted three current and two former New Orleans police officers in the death of Henry Glover, who was shot to death in the chaotic days after Hurricane Katrina, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten announced.
Glover was shot and his body was left in a car behind the Algiers levee, which was torched by the officers, according to the 11-count indictment.
Former police officer David Warren, a rookie at the time, is charged with shooting and killing Glover. He was arrested and is set to appear for a bond hearing Friday before a magistrate judge, where prosecutors are expected to ask that he be held without bond until trial.
Glover was shot near the 4th District substation, according to friends and family. He was picked up by William Tanner, a good Samaritan who did not know him. Tanner has said he took Glover to Habans Elementary School for medical help because it was close by and because it had been taken over by New Orleans police.
However, Tanner and two men who rode with him and the bleeding Glover to the school that day have said police refused to help them, treating them like criminals instead. A few hours later, Tanner saw an officer drive away in his car, carrying two flares in his back pocket.
He evacuated the city later that day, without a car. Weeks later, he found the charred car on the batture with the charred remnants of Glover's body in it.
After the article appeared in the Nation, police conducted another investigation. A police report written in 2009 says that cops drove Tanner's car to the levee in order to "secure" the body.
