Fed Jury Convicts 3 New Orleans Cop in Case Involving Murder and Burning of Body

A federal jury on Thursday convicted three New Orleans cops in the Post-Katrina fatal shooting of citizen Henry Glover and the burning of his body and the cover up, the Justice Department announced. Two other cops were acquitted.

The jury found former New Orleans cop David Warren was guilty of a civil rights violation, resulting in death, for the Sept. 2, 2005, shooting of civilian Henry Glover, as well as use of a firearm during a crime of manslaughter, the Justice Department said.

The jury heard evidence that Warren shot Glover in the back as Glover was running away from him behind the Algiers strip mall.

During trial, evidence showed that Glover’s brother and a friend flagged down a passing motorist, “Good Samaritan” William Tanner, who put the wounded Glover in his car to try to get medical attention.

But when the group of men drove up to a makeshift police station seeking help for Glover, police officers surrounded them at gunpoint, handcuffed them, and let Henry Glover die in the back seat of the car, the Justice Department said.

Officer Greg McRae drove off with Tanner’s car, with Glover’s body inside, and burned both the body and the car with traffic flare, the Justice Department said.

McRae was convicted on two counts of civil rights violations. Lt. Travis McCabe was convicted of obstructing justice by writing and submitting a false report about the shooting of Henry Glover. He was also convicted of lying to the FBI and committing perjury by lying to a federal grand jury.
