Cop Involved in Quadruple Murder and Cocaine Conspiracy Kills Himself as Feds Try to Arrest Him

New York, NY — Disgraced NYPD police officer Gerard Benderoth, 48 — nicknamed “White Rhino” from his days as a strongman competitor — was being arrested by the FBI Wednesday when he pulled out a pistol and put a bullet in his head.

Benderoth was under arrest for his role in a quadruple homicide and massive cocaine conspiracy, of which he was alleged to be a part of and involved at least one other New York cop.

According to the New York Post:

Officers had tried earlier Wednesday to grab Benderoth at his ranch home in Stony Point in Rockland County, where he lived with his wife, Amy, and their four children.

 

Not finding him there, agents caught up with him one town south and some 15 minutes away, on windy Rosman Road.

 

Seeing flashing lights behind him, Benderoth called his former colleagues at the Haverstraw Police Department.

 

“Why are you pulling me over?” he asked, according to sources.

 

But Haverstraw cops told him it wasn’t them.

Realizing that he couldn’t rely on his fellow cops to let him off, Benderoth apparently went into panic mode. He then stopped his SUV in front of a church near a school, grabbed his pistol, and shot himself in the head before the FBI could make it to his car.

Benderoth’s entire role in this conspiracy is unknown. However, as a source told the Post, the fact that he killed himself likely means he was in fairly deep.

“If this guy put a bullet in his head rather than go and talk to them, he must have been in deep,” a police source told the Post.

“While conducting a law enforcement vehicle stop this morning, FBI agents and task force officers approached a man who was the only occupant of a stopped vehicle,” the FBI said in a written statement.

“During the approach, the man drew a handgun and shot himself. He died of the self-inflicted wound.”

Benderoth was alleged to have been involved in a conspiracy with another New York cop, Nick Tartaglione, of Otisville, who the Free Thought Project helped to expose last year.

In December, Tartaglione was arrested after authorities discovered the bodies of four missing men buried on his property. Tartaglione was arrested on murder charges and for his role in a massive cocaine trade, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara said in a press release in December. And now, it seems, Benderoth was also deeply involved.

“While all murders tear at the fabric of our communities, when the alleged perpetrator of a gangland-style, quadruple homicide is a former police officer, that strikes at the heart of civilized society,” Bharara said. “As alleged, Nicholas Tartaglione, a former Briarcliff Manor police officer, participated in the senseless murder of four people in a bar in Chester, New York.

“These four men had not been seen or heard from since the day of their alleged murder. We hope that today’s arrest brings some measure of comfort to the victims’ families and loved ones,” Bharara said.

The murder, which took place back in April, involved four men. According to authorities, two of the murdered men were involved in the cocaine deal that went south while the other two men happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

While his exact involvement in the conspiracy remains a mystery, Benderoth, survived by his four children and wife, must have had something weighing very heavy on him to pull the trigger. Perhaps Tartaglione was rolling over on all those involved in exchange for a lighter sentence and, perhaps, Benderoth knew this.

    He may have not been in deep at all. We’ll never know. However armed with the knowledge of how police treat, capture and abuse their victims…

      Arrested for a quadruple murder and all four bodies were found on his property sounds pretty deep.

        No, we prefer policemen with BRAINS who know how to respect the populace. Is that asking too much?

    A little off topic but I’ve often wondered how these women can stay married to men they have no admiration and respect for, men who themselves are the lowest form of criminals in this country. I can only guess that these women are the same kind of people themselves but I feel bad for the children that get no choice in it at all.

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      Some women are turned on by the power they wield.

      • disqus_ZBXJDbYJHe

        Yeah, till that power is unleash on them and they become domestic violence victims.

      • billdeserthills

        You can’t mean women are attracted to a nut who might do something 95%
        of other folks would never consider doing?!

    • disqus_ZBXJDbYJHe

      I have to agree with you that these women are no better than men that they marry and then these same women complain about how bad their kids are. Well, the fruit doesn’t fall very far from the tree.

        Why cant the alternative be any better? Always has to be worse?

  • Lorne Allen

    I suggest the FBI and local police were hoping he would kill himself rather than implicate others and expose police involvement in drug trafficking. They let him know they were pulling him over, even gave him enough time to make a phone call. Seems to me that it would be very dangerous to give a police officer, who you would expect to be armed and trained to kill, any advance warning that he was about to be arrested.

    • Zsa Zsa

      Agreed, and you have to wonder why he would rather kill himself (and thus traumatise his family) than be arrested. If it’s possible to program people to kill themselves i.e. ‘self-destruct’ (as in the alleged Mk Ultra Delta program), this could be an example. #Just-saying #keep-an-open-mind

  • Doran Zeigler

    Finally, a solution to Krazy Killer Kops — a self inflicted gunshot to the head. Now if this notion would spread to a lot of other cops. “I feared for my life, so I shot myself.”

    What is his family left with? The memory of a corrupt criminal, or the fact that their husband and father committed suicide? Look at all the devastation caused by this man. Murder, drugs, and a family that will be shattered for life, especially his children.

    • 174thandvyse

      Yeah, he’s well gone.

  • Zsa Zsa

    Well you can all tell me I’m crazy, but seriously, try to look below the surface here. There are many options; we may never know the truth. I also find myself assuming I know things that I don’t :/ anyway, here are some ideas.
    Maybe it’s just as it looks; he was a nasty guy who didn’t want to be jailed or for his family to live through his arrest and jail time, that kind of thing. So he shot himself instead; his kids lost a father and gained a life time of … basically, nothing I would wish on any kids.
    Maybe he literally had no choice but to kill himself; he was ‘programmed’ to do it, to avoid exposing others. (For example, check out the documentary American Mind Control: MK Ultra (yep, documentary…) Also, you might want to consider how many movies and books are inspired by MK Ultra programming: Banshee Chapter; American Ultra; the Bourne films; The Killing Room…) Consider also the lack-of-marketing weirdness around the CIA-Contra-cocaine plot film Kill the Messenger.
    Just my 2 cents. Let’s see what happens next in this case, if anything.

    • billdeserthills

      Coulda been worse, lots of these nuts off the whole family first
      What can ya expect from America’s largest gang?

  • sharkboy

    When they arrest regular people for drug crimes, (especially on a ranch), don’t they take everything?
    like this:
    http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/03/us/philadelphia-drug-bust-house-seizure/
    http://dailycaller.com/2015/01/30/the-7-most-egregious-examples-of-civil-asset-forfeiture/

    I’m just saying, his wife and kids get to stay in the house and no word of the family’s assets being frozen or seized by the government. That’s not how they use CAF(Civil Asset Forfeiture) on other people.
    Shit, law enforcement is supposed to even seize the money from what he paid in taxes as that money is obviously laundered then the IRS should come and seize whats left to make up for it.
    Again, they don’t have to prove that it is laundered just the assumption is enough to take it away.

    Don’t get me wrong i totally disagree with those actions but… thats how they would do it to me so I expect them to do it to others. Even their own.
