A two-part story about the murder of a former Watertown Police officer whose murder remains unsolved, will air on WBUR 90.9 FM on Monday and Tuesday.
Gail Miles was Watertown’s first, black female officer and she was killed under mysterious circumstances in December 2011 in her Roxbury home. The killing remains unsolved.
Her career in Watertown was not always a smooth one, as she sued the department claiming she had been the victim of discrimination. In late 2001, Miles received $150,000 in a settlement out of court, and the settlement contained a stipulation that Watertown Police complete a mandatory officer training program aimed at preventing sexual and racial harassment, according to a Boston Globe report at the time of her death.
The series, “Who Murdered Gail Miles?” is by WBUR reporter and Watertown resident Bruce Gellerman, and will cover her career in Watertown and her death. The story features newly uncovered details, Gellerman said.
The series will air on WBUR’s Morning Edition, which airs from 5-9 a.m. It will be repeated during each day’s broadcast. You can also find it on the WBUR website – www.wbur.org.
