Hubert "John-John" Yancey (1935)

11/28/2003: What appeared, at first, as a tragic accident when another officer fatally shot Yancey during a mobile home meth raid developed into allegations from Yancey's widow that he was deliberately killed to silence a corruption investigation, then further allegations of a cover-up. The widow prevailed with a civil jury that awarded her $5M, which re-opened a criminal probe. Another court ruling rendered the $5M uncollectable.
