An LAPD officer investigating Derrick Rose died after being found in her home with a gunshot wound

The case of Derrick Rose's alleged sexual assault took perhaps is strangest turn yet, as an LAPD detective who was investigating for a criminal case against Rose was found with a gunshot wound in her home in Whittier, California. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital less than an hour after the gunshot was reported.

Detective Nadine Hernandez sent a letter to the judge in the ongoing civil case against Rose requesting that the accuser remain anonymous to assist in the LAPD's criminal investigation of the incident. That letter was in itself a revelation that the incident was under criminal investigation, since Jane Doe never pressed criminal charges herself. At 2:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Whittier police received a call reporting a suicide attempt and responded to Hernandez's home.

Hernandez, in her position within the LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division Special Assault Section, often worked in high-profile sexual-assault cases, according to the Los Angeles Times. She was reportedly one of two detectives investigating the criminal case against Rose, which has not yet resulted in any criminal charges.

Police have not said if they believe the incident to be a suicide or a homicide, but Whittier police Lt. Steve Dean said simply, "We're investigating it."
