Ciara Ann Estrada Death – Ciara Ann Estrada, a sworn police officer for the San Diego Police Department was found dead in her apartment on January 1st, 2018. She was 25 years old at that time. According to her family, she served her community with passion and dedication. She was a vibrant, strong, intelligent, accomplished young woman who loved her family more than anything, was passionate about her chosen career and had a heart of gold.

What Happened to Officer Ciara Estrada

Ciara prepared to attend a New Year’s Eve celebration at a nearby hotel on December 31, 2017, accompanied by her San Diego P.D.-sworn police officer boyfriend. Ciara had been involved in a committed partnership for more than two years when it deteriorated significantly between 11:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. In the presence of SDPD colleagues who were also attending the New Year’s Eve celebration, a verbal altercation ensued. This altercation was not de-escalated by these off-duty officers or her beau, who is notorious for having a short fuse and likely instigated the dispute. Ciara departed the gathering in an Uber before midnight, traveling alone.

The family claimed all of the details and statements from her boyfriend and other off duty SDPD officers have been kept, the SDPD did not disclose all of the investigation material to the family.

Ciara was found inside the toilet of her small apartment on January 1st, 2018, with a single gunshot wound in between her eyes. Ciara lived alone, but her boyfriend had the apartment key. The family was never convinced that the deceased committed suicide.

The family claimed they were not informed of the location of the gunshot wound and were not permitted to see her at the time. Despite the risk to the inquiry’s credibility, the San Diego Police Department chose to handle Ciara’s death investigation. Instead of involving another agency/jurisdiction, they ignored guidelines and ethical standards while creating a major conflict of interest by investigating the death of one of their own who had last spoken to another SDPD officer who had been the source of an altercation less than two hours before her death. They promptly judged the death a self-inflicted gunshot, which contradicts relevant training that all “assumed or reported suicides” must be examined as homicides when cops get on scene. The crime scene had become soiled and dangerous. Bloody footsteps were tracked into the living room, and several objects containing Ciara’s and any potential suspect(s) DNA were discarded, including the bathroom rug Ciara died on. The San Diego Police Department informed the family that “she killed herself,’ adding that it was most likely a suicide. There was no coroner or medical examiner on the scene yet.

The family believed Ciara had no suicide ideations, was never depressed or on any medications. Ciara loved herself and her family way too much to ever leave this world in this way. A GoFundMe account was created to assist in filing a wrongful death suit, pay for expert witnesses, evidence discovery, and other various legal fees. It will also pay for any direct or indirect cost related to her death.
