“We honor the service and sacrifices of Officers Brian Sicknick, Howard Liebengood, and Jeffery Smith,” said the acting D.C. police chief.
A second police officer who responded to the violent insurrection that rocked the Capitol Building on Jan. 6 has died by suicide, according to testimony obtained by POLITICO.
Acting Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee told House appropriators during a closed-door session on Tuesday that Jeffrey Smith, a D.C. Police officer, and Capitol Police Officer Howard Liebengood both “took their own lives in the aftermath of that battle.”
Smith’s death had not been disclosed prior to Contee’s testimony.
