FAIRFIELD, Conn., Dec. 6 (UPI) -- A Connecticut state trooper is charged with stealing $3,700 cash and a gold chain from a man killed in a motorcycle accident, prosecutors said.
Trooper First Class Aaron Huntsman, 43, an 18-year veteran of the force, was the lead investigator of a Sept. 22 crash in Fairfield, Conn., that killed John Scalesse Jr., 49, of Orange, Conn.
Prosecutors said a dashboard camera in Huntsman's patrol car offers evidence Huntsman took the cash and chain -- then was one of two troopers who went to Scalesse's mother's home to inform her of his death, the Hartford Courant said Wednesday.
