It strike me as being extremely odd that this death was QUICKLY passed off to the public as being a suicide. I just don't buy it. I can think of a few different scenarios that are a hell of a lot more plausable than suicide:

1) This CO was either under the influence of drugs or alcohol or both; and that part of the story was ignored by the police in typical fashion. After all; CO's and LEO's are a pretty darn close knit group.

2) This CO was driving at a high rate of speed and lost control of his vehicle. As the public knows; the police look the other way for speeding offenses, reckless driving; DUI etc when it is being committed by a fellow officer or a CO.

3) This CO was involved in a drug dealing operation at the jail where he works; and he had fell out of favor with his fellow accomplices; some of which are high ranking jail inmates and some of which are fellow CO's.

4) This CO became aware of an ungoing drug dealing operation at the jail involving fellow CO's as well as high ranking jail inmates and either he wsn't going to stay quite about it or he wanted a share of the action, and he was eliminated via of a motor vehicle crash.

Again, the public is well aware of the goings on in it's prison systems. This suicide tale just doesn't add up.

..... WOW, what a seriously ill person you are. How DARE you make such accusations with absolutely no proof. Mr. Dillon was a hard working young man. None of what you accuse him of is true. May you rot in hell.

If we are to believe the suicide theory on this story, then we should agree that this young man did not lose his life; this young man chose to end his life.

But again, my hunch is that there is a hell of a lot more to this story then just a man who intentionally ended his life. And, even if he did; perhaps it ws the reality of what his fellow CO's were doing (and not the inmates) that drove him down his path of self destruction. We all know that there has been crooked CO's around for just as long as there has been CO's around.....

The public will never know the truth as to how or why Ted Dillon died. His dad works at the House of Correction, brothers are a police officer and a firefighter. The truth will be covered up. The public does have a right to know since the unfortunate death occurred while he was working for the county/state.

Although what you say dose happen Ican tell you with certainly did not happen in this case!No drugs,orgonized crime or stumbled onto something that needed to be hushed up. Being a x-con and doing time in billerica aswell, this IS NOT a facility that that type of enterprise would go on at. Moreover, at Billerica House of Correction a inmate is about to rap up his time of prison and get out.Being from Billerica born and raised as a resident going to school there I will say that in the early years drugs did make into prison, I myself had easily delivered drugs to friends in the dorm there. But your mind is way out there.Let's have respect so the family can morn there beloved son/sibling etc. time to chill brother,peace out...
