Police admit officer behind the wheel of hit-and-run which decapitated Bill McIntire

A Florida man says detectives have told him that a Tampa police officer was behind the wheel of an unmarked vehicle last week that struck and decapitated his father over a week ago.

William “Bill” McIntire was found dead in what authorities have called a hit-and-run accident. His son, Bradley McIntire, tells Tampabay.com that the police finally told him Tuesday that DNA taken from blood on the bottom of a police car matched that of his father, William Dale McIntire, 60.

“I know enough to say it was an officer that was involved,” Bradley said. “I guess they want to say they don’t know if he killed him or if he got struck earlier.”

Tampa police spokeswoman Andrea Davis issued the following statement: “We have an active investigation and under Florida law there is certain information we can’t release. We have been aggressively investigating this tragedy since it occurred. As of today, we are no longer looking for the vehicle involved.”

Brad recounted how  three officers woke him at 3 a.m. June 29 to tell him his father had been killed in a hit-and-run accident. Now he learned that an officer was heading to a robbery call and did not realize he had hit anyone.

Authorities didn’t address why the officer didn’t stop when he obviously “hit SOMETHING.” (Emphasis added, The Dispatch)

“There is still definitely some questions I have to answer,” Brad added. “I want to make sure I’m getting accurate information. I want to make sure nothing is being left out.”

“I can’t help but wonder if everything I’m being told is the complete truth,” he said. “The cops are trying to tell me it was an honest mistake. I drive past the scene every day. When I see it, I see nothing but lights.”

McIntire was an Army veteran with four children and two grandchildren.
