Man may have committed suicide-by-cop

Posted on April 6, 2009. Filed under: Minnesota, suicide |

St. Paul, Minnesota – Police spokesman Peter Panos said Tuesday that the MySpace page and another note apparently left by Jeske on his computer are leading investigators to believe that his death Monday was a case of officer-assisted suicide.

Jeske, 34, of St. Paul, was shot and killed by police after he allegedly refused to put down his gun, and instead raised it, Panos said, while in an alley in the 1500 block of E. Iowa Avenue on the city’s East Side.

A police dog named Boomer was shot in the muzzle during the altercation.

Sometime before he died — gunned down by St. Paul police officers after he allegedly confronted them with a handgun — Robert J. Jeske is believed to have logged onto a MySpace page for the final time.

“I love you all ………. goodbye ….. I am sorry …..” states the note entered under the name Bob Hope.

Jeske’s family and friends were shocked when they learned about the confrontation with police, the shooting and the MySpace goodbye.
