Lower Merion Police Officer Sean Quinn Commits Suicide in FDR Park

A Lower Merion police officer Sean Quinn was found dead from a self-inflicted gun shot wound in FDR Park on Pattison Avenue in South Philadephia Monday morning. Officer Sean Quinn, 46, was last seen in Ardmore early Monday. He failed to report for duty at 7 a.m. Officer Sean Quinn reportedly had mental health issues.

The release did not detail why Quinn’s supervisors felt it necessary to notify other police departments that the officer was missing, but a city police spokeswoman said Quinn was believed to suffer from mental health issues.

Lower Merion Township public information officer Thomas Walsh declined to go in to detail regarding Quinn’s mental state. He did, however, say the officer was not fired but just failed to show up for work.

“We have no idea what he could be, where he is or what he is thinking,” Walsh said. Source

It would follow that someone with mental health issues shouldn’t be allowed to serve on the police force without medical intervention. It is time for mental illness to be taken seriously in this country.
