SAN FRANCISCO — A shocking twist in the recent suicide death of a Fil-Am cop. Officials now say that San Francisco police officer Antonio Cacatian was under investigation for child molestation by authorities in Las Vegas.
A source from San Francisco’s Filipino American law enforcement organization identified 49-year-old Cacatian as Filipino. The policeman of 9 years shot and killed himself during a traffic stop on Monday by police from the nearby city of Richmond, where Cacatian is a resident.
Las Vegas police say Cacatian was under investigation for inappropriate acts with an underage girl in 2014 — one who is a family member. The case continues to be investigated by multiple jurisdictions.
