KTVU: OPD cover-up emerges in Bailey murder investigation
OAKLAND, Calif. — As the eight-week trial of the alleged mastermind of the Chauncey Bailey murder heads to the jury this week, KTVU Channel 2 News has obtained hundreds of pages of legal documents never seen publicly that explain for the first time the inside story of the controversial homicide investigation.
It’s a story that KTVU, a founding member of the Chauncey Bailey Project, has largely been prevented from telling because of a gag order imposed by the command staff of the Oakland Police Department.
The documents paint a troubling picture of former top commanders at Oakland police misleading the public about several key aspects of the Bailey case.
