Texas Deputy Darren Goforth: From 'Hero to Scoundrel'

Deputy Darren Goforth
Cypress, Texas

When a law enforcement officer is allegedly shot at point-blank range multiple times, while simply filling-up his vehicle at a local gas station, it would be easy to rally for him. And that’s exactly what happened in the case of Deputy Darren Goforth.

The husband and father was gunned down at a Cypress gas station a little less than a month ago in an apparent ambush. Surveillance video at the gas station led to the arrest of Shannon Miles.

The case inspired several thousand people to march in Goforth’s memory, while the city created a huge memorial at the site of the murder, and thousands and thousands of dollars were raised for Goforth’s family. On all the nightly newscasts, the word Goforth was repeated, almost to overkill.

Headlines all suggested the same thing about Darren Goforth -- Hero, Family Man, Top-Notch, Honest Police officer

Then, the unthinkable happened.

Friday, the world still mourning the death of this alleged great family man and phenomenal police officer learned of a new headline.

A document became part of the public record. It was sent, as required by state prosecutors, to the defense, that claims a woman seen at the murder scene cradling the deputy's body and screaming told investigators she had a relationship with Goforth.

In newly revealed court documents dated Sept. 16 and obtained by ABC News, the unidentified female “witness” to his death says her relationship with the father of two was "during the preceding 15 months."

A police officer in Oklahoma is accused of sex crimes against a teen girl after the victim’s grandmother discovered evidence of an inappropriate relationship on the 14-year-old’s phone.

Valley Brook Police Officer Courtney Schlinke, 21, is facing 33 complaints, including 16 counts of rape by instrumentation, nine counts of lewd acts with a child under 16 and eight counts of oral sodomy, according to NewsOK.

The victim’s grandmother, Jeanne England, told News 9, "She's a psychopath. She's evil. She's a predator."

According to investigators, the victim's family went to police July 1 after discovering disturbing photos and messages between her and Schlinke on her phone. The evidence appears to date back almost a year, but police believe the sexual relationship could have gone on longer.

Schlinke has been very active on social media, including Twitter, posting numerous photos of herself and the victim, whom she referred to as her “girlfriend.”

The ex-cop also tweeted cryptic messages that said, "I forget your age sometimes" and "I don't wanna hide you anymore."

Courtney Schlinke had been with the department since February, but resigned from her job in an unrelated personnel matter July 20. She was arrested a week later. Valley Brook Police Chief Michael Stamp said Schlinke was still in training, but had been doing police work under a trained officer, according to NewsOK.

"It's unfortunate," Stamp told News 9. "We as police officers are held to a higher standard."

Schlinke remains in Oklahoma County jail on $1.1 million bond. She is scheduled to appear via video feed at an arraignment hearing in Oklahoma County Court on Thursday.

San Antonio, Texas

A sheriff’s deputy in South Texas is drawing media attention after being accused of putting a kitchen knife to his son's throat to quiet the boy.

Bexar County sheriff's Deputy Ronald Bailey has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. After turning himself in on Thursday, the deputy is free on $25,000 bond and has been placed on administrative leave.

According to prosecutors, Bailey was indicted Wednesday over the incident, which happened at his home in San Antonio in September. The deputy allegedly threatened to cut his son's throat if the boy didn't be quiet. The child wasn't hurt but told police he thought his father would kill him.

The children had been staying with Bailey for the weekend.

Bailey’s attorney has declined to comment on the charge.
