Chief Timerman will testify next Tuesday as will Mr. Morse. The fact that a grand jury is taking testimony suggests that criminal charges are being considered in the death of this previously experienced Firefighter, who was a new employee of WFD.
A report by NY State safety experts investigating the incident at the NY State Fire Academy oddly found no violations of health or safety standards, despite the testimony of others, who said they saw instructors yelling at Morse as he lay on the floor, not breathing.
Morse’s parents have been critical of the NY State Fire Academy. They believe it’s an environment of hazing and bullying, and that their son is the victim of a crime. Chief Timerman has also been critical of the investigation into the incident. Much more to follow.
