"When Tacoma's police chief, David Brame, killed his estranged wife and then himself, he shocked a community that knew little of the torment plaguing both his marriage and the police department. Brame became an officer despite failing two psychological exams, he was promoted to chief despite a rape allegation. This investigation looks at how this clearly unqualified man was allowed to assume and abuse such a powerful position.
