A week after Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis asked the FBI to take over the investigation into the shooting death of Det. Sean Suiter, he still had no answer.

Police confirmed Friday that Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray had yet to respond to Davis’ letter requesting the takeover, which was dated Dec. 1.

The FBI, which is already providing support in the investigation, has confirmed receipt of Davis’ letter but declined further comment, saying any response would be sent to the police department.

Tyrone Powers, a former Maryland state trooper and FBI agent who is now a law enforcement consultant living in Baltimore, told the Baltimore Sun he’s not surprised the FBI is taking its time.

“It’s a difficult situation for the FBI,” he said.

The FBI is heavily involved in a police corruption case that Suiter was scheduled to testify in the day after he was shot. Powers noted that the U.S. Justice Department also is technically overseeing the Baltimore Police as part of an ongoing consent decree mandating police reforms.
