Moline cop takes own life in Bettendorf motel room

The QC Times reports that fellow Moline police officers found detective sergeant Mike Sottos, 33, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the Bettendorf Holiday Inn.
A detective sergeant with the Moline Police Department who was reported missing Monday evening was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound about 11 p.m. Monday in a Bettendorf motel, authorities said this morning.

Bettendorf police said they responded to the Holiday Inn, 909 Middle Road, at the request of Moline police. Upon their arrival, they met Moline officers who said they had found the body of Mike Sottos, 33, in one of the motel rooms.

Bettendorf detectives and the Scott County medical examiner investigated the shooting and processed the scene. Police said their preliminary investigation found the death was a suicide.
A very very strange and tragic story. One that leaves a lot of unanswered questions. Perhaps details will follow.
