Officer relieved of duty after FOX 26 report

Posted: Updated:

FOX 26 News has learned a Deer Park Police officer has been relieved of duty following a report we aired Thursday.

That officer, whose name has not been released, was suspended after investigating a 2011 car crash in Deer Park that killed 18-year-old Andreaka Bell.

Bell's family says she was riding with two friends who were drinking.

Lt. Wade Connor of Deer Park PD says the investigation may have been poorly handled by his officer.

Bell's family has complained, saying they haven't had any answers or resolution in the case.

Connor said they're starting from scratch on the investigation.

In the meantime, the Bells have started an online petition to get more action from prosecutors on the case.
