Allegations that Manchester’s Police Chief mishandled crucial video evidence following a deadly officer-involved collision have been withdrawn after more facts have come to light.

In a civil suit filed on behalf of Sandra and Daniel Mormann, parents of the deceased Augustin “Gus” Mormann, of Colesburg, against Police Chief James Hauschild, the City of Manchester and Lt. Jim Wessels, claims were levied that a coordinated attempt was made to cover up missing video evidence from Wessels’ cruiser camera from the night of the fatal encounter.
