KATHY SMITH, FDLE’S LEAD INVESTIGATOR IN CHARLES EIMERS CASE, PUT ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE

FDLE Special Agent Kathy Smith was escorted out of her Marathon office on Wednesday.  She has reportedly been put on administrative leave pending investigation of mortgage fraud.

The Blue Paper reported last week that Agent Kathy Smith and her ex-husband Scott Smith [at the time a Police Captain employed by KWPD] appear to have signed a false affidavit associated with an advantageous mortgage.  They borrowed $ 461,500 on a house they had purchased in 2004 for $ 132,500.  The home is now in foreclosure.  In the affidavit the Smiths swore to the lender that they had been “continuously married” even though they had divorced four months previous.

Special Agent Kathy Smith was the lead investigator in the death of Charles Eimers.  FDLE’s failure to secure Eimers' body for autopsy, to return calls to witnesses volunteering information and to collect and protect crucial evidence, made the investigation ever more controversial.

When Agent Smith’s investigative report was finally published some seven months after the incident, it appeared that she could have deliberately mislead the Medical Examiner by not providing him with key information about the possibility that asphyxiation and/or trauma had been associated with his death.

An investigation into Agent Smith’s possible conflict of interest due to her relationship with KWPD's Captain Scott Smith brought to light the apparent mortgage fraud that is now under investigation.

  1. well, it’s a start! notice how it took something like mortgage fraud, which casts a poor light on the department to get them to act, but still nothing relating to the outright corruption she prosecuted in the Eimers case.

    do the editors know if she is still being paid during her leave?

    • It was okay with FDLE for Cathy Smith to violate FDLE rules for investigating a death in police custody case, then FDLE put Cathy Smith on administrative leave for perjuring mortgage loan documents. If that ain’t seriously you know what up, then what is it?

    • keysbum it is reported in the kw citizen as paid leave.

      Kathy Smith, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigator who led the state’s probe into the 2013 death of Charles Eimers, was placed on paid administrative leave on Wednesday pending an inquiry into mortgage fraud allegations.”

    • This woman has been complicit in all the illegal activities of the KWPD and the MCSO for at least 18 years that I personally know of. Tried to report illegal activity long ago to FDLE in Tallahassee. They referred it down to her. Big joke.

      I’m thrilled to see her nailed. Notice, the mullet wrapper didn’t mention the house is in foreclosure, so that makes it even worse. They committed fraud to borrow probably $350,000 + and pocketed that, then obviously didn’t pay the mortgage. That’s fraud, but it’s not uncommon for the local cops.

  2. Will the honest hard working Key West police go to the right side of the room? The rest go to the left side. My God, The room is tilting to the left. What a coincidence.

  3. My only statement for Ms. Smith is, “Karma is a bitch.”

  4. Just back from Miami. Opening Night of our show “Five Guys Named Moe”. Sellout crowd at the Lyric Theater in ‘Overtown’. “Rave Reviews” from the Miami Herald and other critics…..

    Now to the business at hand…..

    I’ve been informed that the FDLE supervisor and special agents overseeing the killing of Mr. Eimers, coordinated and colluded with the State Attorney’s Office, to included some of its investigators and prosecutors; in exchanging possible story line interpretations, information and evidence; designed to develop a work product that could be used to conceal and cover-up the commission of any crimes that might have led up to, and followed, the murder of Mr. Eimers.

    Based upon this information, it appears that some individuals within KWPD may have actively participated in, and facilitated this criminal conspiracy. The evidence suggests that a fraud may have been perpetrated upon the ‘grand jury’, residents of Key West and the United States of America.

    The aforementioned malfeasance, has been typically punished with lengthy terms of hard time in our toughest prisons. If found guilty, for the cast of characters allegedly involved in these crimes, it would mean a death sentence.

    My pleas for an independent, impartial, accurate and detailed investigation of the killing of Mr. Eimers were ignored.

    It appears that the intent and focus of those responsible to secure a truthful and valid examination of this tragedy; were instead concentrated upon destroying evidence, suppressing and tampering with the facts, intimidating witnesses and obfuscating justice; in preparation for a skewed and biased proffering of their findings to our ‘grand jury’.

    Apparently, this travesty of justice has been unraveling for awhile. Dealing with similar issues, I’ve described the process.

    Although the wheels of justice grind slowly; the rats will jump ship, turn on one another, inform (snitch) on everyone they can, cut a deal with anyone who’ll have them, and accept any plea deal they may be given. It has been my experience, the type of alleged crimes addressed in Mr. Eimers’ death are usually punished with an extended stay in prison.

    I’ve been apprised that the continued festering of this wound has become a source of embarrassment, rendering a ‘black mark’ upon the Justice Department. Although undergoing a change in leadership, they’ve described the ‘criminal negligence’ implicated in this matter, as having reached a ‘tipping point’.
