Judge: Where are former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s computer and emails?
DETROIT (WXYZ) – What happened to former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s computer? That’s what a federal judge wants to know.
During a hearing in the lawsuit over the murdered stripper Tamara Greene, it came out that Kilpatrick’s computer was thrown out along with emails that may be evidence in the case.
Not only is Kilpatrick’s computer missing, the computer of his former mistress and Chief of Staff, Christine Beatty, is also gone.
The judge in the case is concerned that both computers were purposely destroyed. As a result of the missing computers, the judge could rule in favor of Greene’s family who sued the City of Detroit and Kilpatrick for allegedly thwarting the investigation into Greene’s death.
Greene allegedly danced at the rumored Manoogian Mansion party in 2002.
The judge also wants the city to search harder for the missing police run sheets from the 7th Precinct. That is the precinct where cars would have been dispatched to the alleged party.
Attorneys for both sides have two weeks to file a legal brief arguing how the judge should handle the missing evidence and any possible penalties.
