Missing Officer Committed Suicide, Police Say

Posted: Updated:

A respected veteran of the Lower Merion Police Department was found dead in his car Monday after an alert was issued for his recovery, police said.

The police superintendent sent out an alert Monday morning that Officer Sean Quinn, 46, had not reported for duty and was missing to regional law enforcement agencies. He did this out of "an abundance of caution." 

Philadelphia police said they concentrated their search for Quinn at FDR Park in South Philadelphia. They found him unresponsive in his personal vehicle in the park. Police said Quinn was deceased due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police said Quinn was last seen in Ardmore around 5:30 a.m. on Monday. He was due to report for duty at 7 a.m., but had not been able to be reached since then. His last known contact with family was at 6:27 a.m., from the Columbus Boulevard area of Philadelphia.

The superintendent said in a statement that "The Lower Merion Police Department wishes to express its heartfelt condolences to Officer Quinn's family and friends and asks that they be kept in your hearts and prayers as we all try to come to terms with this tragic event."
