A former Dallas police officer who was indicted on charges of orchestrating two murders has been released from jail after the charges against him were dropped, NBC News Dallas–Fort Worth reports.
Bryan Riser was freed on Tuesday after federal prosecutors dismissed the charges against him. His friend, Donald Fisher, was also released. The pair had been charged with kidnapping and murder after allegedly orchestrating the deaths of two men, whose bodies were found in a lake in Dallas in 2017.
Authorities initially alleged that Riser paid Fisher almost $10,000 to kidnap and kill the men, although the indictment made no mention of how the men died.
The indictment was also dropped in December. “After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances of this case, the indictment against Mr. Riser was determined to be insufficient,” a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
