A Detroit police captain has died from coronavirus.
Capt. Jonathan Parnell, who went by the nickname “Recon,” headed homicide based out of headquarters. Over his 31-year career, he worked in homicide, sex crimes, child abuse and narcotics.
“He was a great guy, very tactical, very smart, he was a street cop, a real street cop, very polite, very humble,” someone who had worked with Parnell told Deadline Detroit.
Parnell was in his fifties and leaves behind three sons.
