A Dallas police officer on Thursday was arrested on capital murder charges stemming from a yearslong investigation.
Officer Bryan Riser, who has been with the law enforcement body since 2008, has been implicated in two murders, Dallas Police Department Chief Eddie Garcia told reporters during a press conference. Riser instructed a witness to kidnap and kill two people between February and March 2017, Garcia said.
One of the victims, a woman, was found dead in a river after she was riddled with bullets. The corpse of the other victim, a male, has yet to be uncovered.
