Buffalo Police Officer Craig Lehner

Though the drowning death of Buffalo Police Officer Craig Lehner remains under investigation, some troubling details regarding the incident continue to emerge. For her recent reporting, Daniela Porat of Investigative Post reviewed United States Coast Guard documents recorded during the search for Lehner. During her monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass, Porat described how the Niagara River's swift conditions on that fatal day were less than ideal for a training exercise.
