Fairborn police investigating online threat against officer

Fairborn police are investigating a possible threat in reference to an officer who was placed on paid administrative leave for an alleged misconduct on Facebook.

Facebook user identified as Chuck Montgomery of Yellow Springs shared an article about officer Lee Cyr, who was placed on paid administrative leave for allegedly writing “love a happy ending” under a story on the Ohio Politics Facebook page reporting the suicide of Black Lives Matter activist Marshawn McCarrel, 23.

The post, alleged to be from Montgomery, said: “If anyone in the area murders this cop, I will gladly throw a celebration in their honor and put money on their commissary books.”

The post also read “If anyone is reading this and wants to voice a comment against my statement, prepare to be instantly blocked.”

Fairborn police said Monday the department would not comment while the investigation is ongoing.

Montgomery could not be reached for comment Monday.
